    I caught a 56# blue in January but besides that one, I havent caught too many maybe 2-3 in the 15-20# range one that was 33# and about 4-5 under 10#'s This year is starting out slow. I went friday night and saturday night but only caught one small one. Seemed like the bite was slow due to the 12 degree temp rise in seven days. Hopefully by this weekend they are used to the warmer water and bite good.

    Wich I had a chance to go out an catch some cat's. the weather here in Pittsburgh went from the 60's yesterday to flurries today. At this rate the water won't be heated up enough at least for a month and a half maybe.
