    Caught 6 cats today........the wind probably made me fish places I wouldn't normally fish.....but I guess it was a blessing in desguise.......the other fish were small except for one nice 23 lber.......this big ol blue was caught on one of my small rig's with fireline and a 6/0 hook......small chunk maybe 3x2 of cut skipjack....maybe 17ft deep......I thought we had a big drum for about 5min's and when it didn't give up I was thinking 50+ flathead......I was suprised when it finally surfaced......that blue stayed down and pulled hard probably a 10 min battle....caught by Mike Hall of Mississippi
