Had a pretty good day fishing on Thursday. Weather was great and I got to take my girls out for a day on the water. Put the boat in at Uchee creek and fished between there and Riverbend. Water temp at 0600 was around 51 degrees and it warmed to about 54 by the end of the day (surface of course). Air temps were from 45-72, winds light at less than 8 mph. Started out the morning drifting the main channel, but was not able to find any real fish movement or holes. Caught one small blue drifting before changing my tactics to exploration. Spent the next couple hours just looking for the fish and determined that they were all hiding in the deepest water of 30 plus feet. Quite surprising with such warm water temps. I guess these southern cats are warm blooded! Once satisfied with my recon, I settled in and fished a couple of holes. Ended up the day with 16 blue cats, 1 small channel cat. The largest fish caught was 4.5 pounds, nothing spectacular, but I really enjoyed myself. Bait was cut skipjack/shad. Was not able to find any fresh bait so it was all frozen. I picked my girls up around 1 pm and fished with them for about 3 hours. Had a great day, put some good fish in the freezer!
