    The cats were not as active today like the last few weeks, but the big bite is still there. We fished from 6:30 to 9:30 this morning and put 3 fish in the boat. Weights were 63, 25 and 18lbs.... we unhooked about 7 fish at the boat that were in the 8-12lb range. The fish that Brad is holding in the last pic was very interesting. As I was reeling one of the lines in to go fish another hole, I snagged the next line over. The line from the other rod got twisted on the swivel of the rig I just reeled in, of course a fish takes off on the rod that I have just tangled, lol. Luckily the fish turned and started swimming toward us giving slack line. I told Brad to get the scissors and start cutting the tangled line away.. well he cuts the main line. The fish was right under the boat by this time so Brad quickly grabs the line and wraps it around a bow cleat.... puts on a pair of leather gloves and pulls it in by. hand The fish was still very green and proved to be very amusing
