Went to Crab Orchard for some camping and fishing end of last week through the weekend with another member on the board, spills, and had a fantastic trip. Of course caught some crappie etc. But i tell you we hooked into more cats then either of us have ever seen in a 3 day span. A local guy turned us on to good areas to go.. and Saturday alone we hooked into about 60 channels and blues ranging in size from 2lbs up to a bit over 8. I just got into targeting cats seriously last year and have never caught a blue before, so to say the least i was pumped to catch my first blue, ended up being the big fish for the weekend.. a bit over 8lbs. Anyway.. just wanted to let you guys know that the bite is strong at crab. attached is a pic of the 8lb blue.. i'll add a few more pics later.
