    Well this morning I wanted to get out on the Ohio River earlier then we have been this week, but due to people sleeping in to all hours of the morning we didn't leave until 8:30AM again, (lol)

    Man the frost was heavy this morning, and about 30*, Stoney and myself hit the water and headed to our secret spot (lol) ( I am not telling whistler) Anyway once we got in the area I started searching for the catfish, on the depth finder, we found several laying in some old tree tops and old stumps on the bottom of the river, about 38 foot of water today, River temp was right at 43* it seems to be coming up some. River level has fallen about 6 inches since yesterday.

    We got set up and this time it took just about 35 Minutes until the first pole went down, ( Guess Who's ) yep Stoney !! (he held a gun to me and would not let me toss out until he caught a fish today ! Just not right man )
    Anyway I looked over and his rod went down hard !! you could seen his smile from across the river if you were there. I grabbed the camera , (which he told me was my job today !!) and I started filming away, After about 6-8 Minutes Stoney got the fish to the boat it was a nice one, 35 # Bluecat caught on a frozen skipkjack. Stoney could not quit smiling now, he was one up on me.

    So now he told me I could bait up my rods and toss out, this is kind of unfair don't you think..(lol) Well we sat for about another hour in the same spot until we decided to move, so we picked up and move about 100 yards below us, still showing all kind of hogs laying in the structure around us, I guess there were not very hungry today, Anyway about 20 minutes and I looked up as my rod started to load, all I could hear was a groan coming from the other side of me, yep you got it right Mr Stone, making remarks under his breath !! anyway my rod started to load and I picked it up and the fish started to move off, so I hammered him, about 5 seconds into the fight I feel this heavy thing that stopped me, Wow right into a snag !! I looked over my shoulder and the Stone Master was smiling he figured I was done for !! so I let the slack off the reel and about 2 Minutes the fish was jerking hard on the rod, he had freed himself, about a 5 Minute battle I got the fish in and it was a 21# blue cat, the entire time Stone Master was filming my fish, we both gave each other high five's and decided it was time to pull off the water due to Stoney having to be at work at 3:00PM

    I am just glad he didn't kick my butt out there today cause I would of never heard the end of it..

    I downloaded the photos of our two fish for you to view.

    Whistler & Catfish Hunter you guys don't have to sit on the sidelines come on up and come on over, I will show you my little secret hole. lol :p

    Don't have one yet. My wife has something up her sleeve and said that she would get one for me, but, what it is/will be, well, i don't know.
