    Well the the sun came out today so me and my son headed to upper wheeler...I knew with all the rain that the river would be up and the current swift but thats how I like it...we made 4 anchors with out a bite and then some clouds kicked up bring rain,wind and lightning...after out running most of the bad weather we made our last anchor of the day which yielded us a 10lb channel and a beautiful 62lb blue...fish were caught in 35feet with skipjack...btw skips are running at guntersville dam...

    Congratulations on a fine catch Jason! Sounds like the fish are beginning to make a move up the rivers towards the dams and began there pre spawn dining habits :smile2:
