    Got to Deep Bottom around 8:00 AM. Took a few sets of the net to catch enough to get started. Fishing was slow. I marked plenty of fish where I had great luck Wednesday but could only manage a few sub ten pounders. My buddy and I picked up my brother at noon, reset the net and had cutters galore for the afternoon bite. We headed above Jones Neck and tried a few new spots. Finally rewarded with a 42 and a twenty something. Caught the 42 on my dink rod I throw out for little cats so I can do some catching. Its an ancient Ambassadeur 4600 with 12 or 17 pound test that I haven't changed in 20 years. It took me twice as long to get in as the fish in my profile pictures. It bit a piece of shad smaller than my little finger and the hook is one I use for croakers. My buddy with me is not really a big fisherman and he did an outstanding job netting the fish. I couldn't have done it solo. We didn't wear them out today but as always, I had a ball and what a pleasure to fish with my brother and my childhood friend Bill

    Alan, I am going to guess 70+. That's a pig for sure. My new 100 pound scales came in the mail Wednesday so I have lost my ability to over-estimate. :wink:. You were going to fish Deep Bottom one day and Jordon Point the next. What part of the river did the pig come from?

    Nice fish Kenneth. That is a good spot right there, incoming and outgoing. That is a good go-to spot if all else fails, lots of structure. Good Job!

    Kenneth,

    It was very nice meeting you yesterday...I wish I had followed you around..we only caught one small one. We caught enough bait but not much luck on the catfish. If you ever have an empty boat give me a shout and I will be happy to go along or you can come with me. Thanks again for the tips on the bait locations..
