    Hey everyone just got back from the tar camp gathering and i beat my old pb of 11.4 and got me a 19.2 blue this weekend. We had a great time and met some new members . Again if anyone that has not made a gathering with the boc you need to try to get to one.You get to meet some fantastic people from all walks of life and you will also gain some lifelong friends.

    ok billy here it is. We were about a 1/4 mile up from camp and in this area of the river there is alot of small deep wholes . jtrew told us that he seen this whole and it looked good so we checked it out . it was about 50-70 ft wide and 100 + long and 40- 50 ft deep. 4-12 ft all around it. we anchored about 25 ft up from it and casted into it about 10 minutes later she bit and we landed her. Well found out i definately need a bigger net - the blue was to big for it at only 19.2 oz. we then went up river to try for some and johnnie had a real good one on and got it to the boat and it broke free - got off the hook . This area of the river is full of good deep wholes and some real good blues . alot of rockdykes and underwater structures. im sure going back to try for a bigger one now

    Congrats on the new PB Robert. It is great when you can get the new PB. It wont take you long to break it. Glad you had a great time at the gathering.
