    Ryan congrats on your first blue from Mo. 5 pounds is not a bad fish. Now you are hooked. This is a great sport and very addictive.

    Ryan, are you fishing from a boat or the shore? It sounds like you need some rod holders either way. We can get you some nice custom rod holders for a boat for a very good price if you would like. Congrats on the blue though. I am still still looking for a nice sized blue also. I don't fish for them much, but I am working on it. Where in IL are you fishing?
