    Caught shad in a creek mouth and headed down river about 11pm. Hit first spot off the end of a sandbar where shallow drops into deeper water. Over the next 4 hours it was non-stop action, and when you got a hit you knew it. Wasn't any of that tap tap stuff. Anyways, caught 8 fish total. Had 4 blue cats that went around 100 lbs all together. A 35, 31, 20, and 15 lber. Had 3 channels that were all between 5-12 and a 6lb flattie. Fresh shad right on the edge of that drop was key. Here is a pic of a blue my friend caught and a couple others I am holding on a stringer. BTW...we kept them until we got done to get a pic with them all together, we than turned them loose one at a time to fight agian!!! :)

    Thanks everyone! I was fishing the Meldahl Pool. Not a pool known for its blues, although not record book size, they are in there for sure. Just got to know where to find them. :)
