    My friend Adam and I got out on the river today in search of Blue cats. We were on the water by 10:15 this mornin' and had no problem finding lots of small Shad in a feeder creek. We set up on some structure in 25' of water right next to deeper water with good current. The river and the barometer were dropping today. We immediately starting catching fish. We caught several fish around 10 lb., a few fish 12 to 15 lb. Adam caught a double, and he also caught one big Blue at 36lb. All fish were caught on fresh Shad. We ended up catching 12 fish total, we pulled out about 4:30. Dave

    Chris, we fished a couple holes around Trimble, Co. The first hole that we fished produced all the Blue cats. The bite slowed as the day wore on.

    Well crap, you mean I could have been catching fish instead of sitting in my boat blind not seeing any ducks! That report gives me hope, one of these warmer days I am heading out to the river near Petersburg, anyone want to join me? (by warmer I mean above 45 degrees, froze my nuggets off during duck season and I dont feel like freezing the rest of me off):crazy:
