    I went out Friday night and landed some great fish, a 34lber and then a 22lber, not to mention a few more that weighed out in the teens. Then last night I went out again and got into them again! My partner caught his new personal best cat, a 24 pound flathead!! I landed a 29 pound blue and then he landed a 15 pounder! We caught several others but they were weighed out to be about 8-10 lbers. We each lost a couple really decent fish as well, don't know what happened, the fight was on but some how the fish just spit the hook out!

    Here are a few pics of last nights catches! I'll post Friday nights catches later today as my other buddy has the pics on his camera!

    All fish were pictured and released. All were caught on herring below chain of rocks on the Mississippi.

    I've been 8/0 Gamakatzu circle hooks and 10-16 ounce weights depending on the current. All the fish I've been catching have been in about 33-37 feet of water.
