    Fished this morning from 6:45 to 11:00, caught 9 blues, 3 whites and 1 channel. I went intending to drift fish but marked a good bunch of fish stacked in a small area and decided to achor. The biggest blue was 35 lbs. the rest were in the 5 to 10 lb. range. I caught the 35 on a live bream on a slip cork rig set 20ft in about 26 ft of water. I caught 3 on the slip cork rig, the rest on the bottom. Lost another good fish , cut my 40 lb. leader. It was a pretty good morning compared to the way it has been lately. I will try to post a picture of the 35 later. I good tell it had a gut full of clams.

    Well it's about time you did something at Tillery. I went to Falls this morning and caught 5 flats 5-8lbs and 5 blues from 6-20lbs. Hopefully they get bigger. It was nice and cool this morning for a change.

    Yeah it was about time, I hope its not that long again before I catch a good one. It was nice this morning, I had the lake to myself most of the time. Then some jet skiers came out and started playing around . I guess the only part of the lake open for them was right around me...................:angry: Hey, I think school starts back soon................:big_smile:
