    On May 1st around 9ish in the morning, while fishin from a dock near Charlestown IN. I hooked up on my new PB. This healthy lookin, hard fightin blue weighed in at 43lbs. Its already been posted in the Blue Catfishing section, but I thought I'd show the pics in the local Indiana talk section as well. I caught em' on a freshly caught skipjack's head, hooked through the eyes with an 8/0 circle hook. Bent the rod down and put up a good/strong 10-15 minute fight (he took 3 different runs). Alot of fun! Good Luck Fellas.

    Hoosier Catman, we've never met but already I don't like you. Showing all us other fishermen up with that stuffed,overweight,obese cat you caught. You're just trying to rub our noses in it, aren't you. Tongue in cheek there buddy.
    Way nice looking fish.
    I've been wanting to get on the Ohio but I generally fish below Mcalpine Dam and the water has been way too messed up lately.

    Nice fish!!!!
