    I went back to Tillery last from 0100-0700. I had a hard time marking any fish. I anchored out and caught two 12lb blues and a 7lb flat. Tried several differnet areas, not much. At daylight I moved again. I went over this area and marked some big fish. I put out and casted live bait out on floats and on the bottom. It didn't take long. The first blue was caught on the bottom. He was 28lbs. Just before I was going to leave I noticed my floatrig moved alittle. Then it started going down in real slow motion. I had to look twice to make sure I wasn't seen things. As it finally went under I set the hook and it was a nice fish. Didn't relise how big until I got him to the boat. I couldn;t bring him up for a while. He put up a great fight. He weighted out at 47lbs. I called after that. Saw alot of tipwater action this morning, whiteperch and small bass everywhere.
