    After reading about winter blue fishing, I decided to try it out at my favorite hole. Well, it paid off! Not only did I nail 2 good ol' blues but I also scored a channel BONUS... I fished from about 1:30 pm to about 6:00 pm and nailed all 3 between 4:30 and 5:00 on frozen cut shad. Not only were these the first winter blues but also my personal best on one of them!!! 17lbs he weighed. Caught on 12/30/07. Just a little side note... the big one had half of a chicken breast in his belly so to all of the chicken people, this is the fella stealing your chicken!!! Enjoy-

    thanks everyone! and yes I did fillet them and will soon feed on them:wink: And for the other question, yeah I keep quite a few as I need them but do release some when I don't. I fish for food just as much as I do sport and times are hard right now so food it is!!!:tounge_out: I was going to throw the big one back but the wife would not let me. Never eaten one that big and I was wondering if they taste as good as the youngins'? I do know that the fillets from that 1 fish will feed me and the fam for a night all by itself...pretty cool
