    All in a day, My youngest son,nephew and I went to a lake in western Jefferson Co Ky today,and the Blue bite was on. I caught 15 blues and 1 flathead,son 0,nephew 1 blue. 17 fish all-together averaging from 12 to 32lb's.

    All fish come off a long 8'deep underwater island (mound) with deeper water surrounding it dropping to a 9-10' rock flat. We were using 3-4'' bluegills for bait, hunting for flatheads and wound up finding blu's:eek:oooh:

    Thats Alright:lol: We would cast out past the mound and float the gills over the mound sometimes dragging the mound, but as soon as the bait was on top of the mound and moving off, the float started to straighten back up, and Bam! It would disappear LOL.Bro's my son could'nt beleive it. It happened every time like that. Them Blues were all over that mound.Feeding like crazy.

    Heres some Pic's,
