    I posted the fishing results on the SC site under river talk @ the big pee dee river. That is where we were fishing were the big pee dee dumps into the bay. We ended up with 5 fish(37,37,17,17,8). The 37lber was my new all time biggest blue. I love this sport.

    blue cat can take a lot more salinity than other cats....first blue i caught in salt water was where the intercoastal canal meets the colorado river. also where the diversion channel meets west matagorda bay. but the biggest shock was when me and a friend were redfishing the mouth of the brazos river and caught 11 blues all in the 3-4 lb range.

    Yeah I like to get on them this time a year down there while the big boys are fatting up for the spring run up the river.
