    Keepit and myself fished down lake sat, fishing 15 to 70 ft catching some very healthy blues. We did not weigh any but my best guess Id say they went from 8 to 20 lbs. Surely not the one we are looking for but a very good day on the water. The bait of choice was bream we caught at the landing, Didn't take but 10 minutes to catch all we needed to fish all day. Oh almost forgot all fish were caught drifting corks from 17 to 24 ft.
