    actually, it was my FIRST "wild caught" blue that i got today:wink:. Salmonid and i decided to try out some areas in a tributary to the Ohio river where i had scouted out in the past for flatties to see if they held blues during the winter. the Dink "bait-peckers" drove us nuts all day but i did manage to get my first wild-caught blue (not from a pay pond) and a few other channels. i expected us to catch more blues but it just didnt happen. about 3 hrs before we left we decided to take a chance and venture out onto the mighty Ohio river in my little jon boat:crazy: where we found a 60 ft hole and boated an 8 and 9lb channel before calling it quits due to the wind and waves picking up. a special thanks to Salmonid for putting up with the after effects of all the beer and mustard potato salad i consumed the previous night!:bad_smelly:
