    The morning bite was very good today.Lee and Stephanie Straughter joined me for some channel cat action. Started a little slow but by 8:00 am things started to heat up. We caught 23 channels with 4 fish over 13lbs. Our biggest was just shy of 15lbs. Dip bait was hot today. We used it to bring the bite back several times after the cut bait bite slowed.In some holes it's all the fish wanted. We took 3 of the big fish today on the dip as well. 10:00 - 11:00 was the best hour of the day for us. Water level is perfect right now. I got a chance to fish some of my favorite spots for the 1st time this season. The current has finally subsided enough to anchor there. Circle hooks really shine when your unhooking that many fish on the dip bait. All were hooked neatly in the corner of the mouth.
