    Jackie,
    I fished a tournament yesterday with fellow BOC member vlparrish. We had a total weight of 103.8 pounds for the day weighing in five fish. The biggest was 38 pounds with four others close to 20 pounds. They seem to be starting to lite bite for the most part. Kinda peck around on the bait for awhile before taking it. This is not always the case but seems like some of them do that. But yes the blues are biting on the Ohio River. rspd507

    Steve,
    Yeah we took second place. Still hard to believe that we got beat with that weight, but hey, anything is possible out there. We had a blast, I can tell you that. Parr and Courtney are really set up for catfishing from there rig to all the other equipment. It just made me feel good being able to compete with those guys. But I'll tell you this, Vern is one heck of a fisherman and knows how to get the job done too, ive learned alot from him. Talk at ya later, Ross
