Got out on the river last night a bit late, around 10 pm! :angry: By the time I had found enough bait and got my first pole in the water, it was close to 11pm.:angry: Anchored up and threw the first pole out and started riggin' up the other, first pole went down. Dink.... Then my buddy had one on, Dink.... A few minutes later, I had a good slam and pulled one in that I am guessing weighed around 24 pounds, I was too lazy to put the scale to him!:smile2: A little better!!! Then we caught a few more dinks.....when my pole doubled over and I landed a fish that weighed 44.1lbs! Alright!!! I then caught a 9 pound channel!! A great sized channel cat, I know it's a "dink", but a great size channel for me anywho!! I fished below the Alton Dam, all fish were caught in one general area behind a wing dyke all on shad!! I was only out there four about 4 hours of fishing and was able to boat 10 fish, mostly dinks but I was able to upgrade my Fish-Off entry!!!
