    Had to go by myself for a little while this morning since I couldn't find anybody else willing to brave the cold and wind. Fished about 3 hrs. Caught 3 blues. Big fish was 35 and was released, the others were 30 and 15. Tried to get a good pic of the big fish. It apparently did not want its picture taken. Every time I got the fish ready and grabbed the camera, it moved. Anyway, here's the best one I got. Forgot to get pics of the other two before cleaning. All were caught anchored.

    Nice report Mark. I thought about going today but the wind scared me away. What was the bait of choice and depth?

    Hey Mark were you using frozen or live herring? If fozen where did you find it? Only thing I can find is mullet and I can stand using it. Let me know, good job on the cats buddy.

    You can get live herring at Canal Lakes and probably at Hills. Sometime they have shad and sometimes they have herring.

    Great Picture! Thanks for the report. I thought that was interesting that some of the fish were in 6' of water. I should have tried shallow on the 1st but talked myself out of it.

    Mark,
    Very nice catches on such a cold day. I've never fished the cold months but hope to soon. What time of the day was you fishing?
