i was up at buggs island friday night. we caught 6 or 7 cats and 2 crappie worth keeping. i caught a blue about 15 lbs. they other guy with had one on his line for a few minutes that he couldnt get off the bottom and ended up breaking his line. wasnt the best night fishing but wasnt terrible either. there was plenty of shad so i dont know why we didnt catch more.
