    I think it's possible for blues to go that deep.

    I have heard of people catching blues in over 100' of water.

    I can think of one good way to find out.:wink: I won't be afraid to try if I could find enough anchor rope.there is some deep holes down on the james river people fish pushing 100' and are bringing in some big ones. Probably have to make sure you bring them up nice and slow if you did get hooked up to allow for pressure changes from that depth before returning the fish to the water.

    Thanks guys, I've been thinking of trying to drift threw it? There's a-lot of river at the 60 to 90ft range. I've been pulling in a bunch 3 to 10lb flatties in the brush piles(daytime) in 20 to 50ft range. There's some giants in this river, I just got to keep going! About 15yrs ago there was a 128lb Blue caught on a trot-line:sad2:. So I know their in there, the Atchafalaya River is where the Red River ends up and the Mississippi River feeds into it. :cool2:

    I have fished in the 80's and caught some blues. So i am sure you can catch them in 100+.Good luck.
