    My shad didn't show up until 10:30 this morning so we got to the river about noon. After a day of losing NO rigs yesterday, I lost three in the structure pronto today. After we got settled in, I had a monster literally almost snap the rod holder off the boat, and I was lookin' right at it. When I set the hook, he kept going and broke my line. I had the drag locked tight to winch them out of the structure, but the 20# Berkley Big Game line couldn't take that ride. We lost several nice fish for various reasons, but David managed to get a 7 1/2 pounder in. I'm headed for some circle hooks now to avoid future fish getting loose. The bite was darn good today, and we should have had a pile of fish. Back at it tomorrow at daybreak! Y'all better get at it!! :)

    Where did you launch from today, Bill? I was up at Cheraw and Blewett Falls, then back down to Cashua Ferry. Didn't have time to go to Society Hill or Blues, but everywhere I went, folks were fishing; mostly catters, at least that I saw. Didn't get any reports from any of them today, but a couple that I spoke with indicated they had been doing pretty well with the catfish lately.
