    Fished all weekend, downriver, upriver and decided as I was pulling out of the driveway this moring to stay upriver.

    My dad and I hit the water out of Ann Carrows @ 7am and met two guys from the "shad project" who were pulling out. They said they had 6 hickory shad and one american pulled in from their net since 4am. Nice guys.

    We got bait and headed down to a spot Keneth showed me yesterday and 10 minutes in my new rod(replacement for the one I lost Sat) went down so I handed it to my dad and he landed a 31.4, ten min. later another rod dipped and I got a 31.6. It sure made us forget about the cold wind a blow'n.

    We hit a couple of other spots and got a 3 and a 28 pounder. After a while my dad pointed out a spot to try and as we set up for lunch a catfish decided he wanted to join us. My dad hooked up on a 44 pounder on my smallest rod and the fight was on. I was the most fun I had all weekend. It was'nt his PB (wich he got w/ Capt. Mike Ostrander) many years ago (46lb). It was however the biggest fish I have been able to put him on. All thanks to the knowlege gained from this site.

    Thanks Brothers!

    Wraped up the day w/ a 12 pounder my dad got. Fished 3 days in a row hard and this was the best day!
