Myself and Bigcatwannabe have been fishing the Pee Dee river with good success the last 2 weeks. He and his fiance went one night and caught a 21, a 35, and a 42 in less than 2 hours. The 21 and 42 were caught on a crappie rod! They lost another big fish at the boat. We went back 24 hours later and I landed a 37 lb. blue. We returned last night and within 20 minutes of getting set up (using rotten shad for bait) we had a 25 lb. blue hit and 10 minutes later we got a 22 lb. blue, both choosing the rotten shad over the fresh shad we caught an hour before. All these were caught in the same general area. Hopefully our lucky streak will continue for a while longer. Still waiting to hook up with one of the big flatheads that are roaming around up there though!
