    Well yesterday I went out and caught about 7 blues from 10-22lbs. This morning I went back and only caught 3 blues from 10-40lbs. Lost one other nice fish. It's amazing as to how blues move from one day to another. The past two mornings it was chilly with that northwind blowing. Both mornings had plenty of bait. Water was at 56* up river. See-ya.

    Robert, do you recall what time you caught the 40 pounder? I am trying to see if there is a time line for big fish, during the Spring AM hours. Mudkip has been catching some nice cats around 9 to 10 AM and I my big fish this week have also been within this time period, except for the flathead yesterday AM and I caught him at 8 AM and the two blues around 10 to 10:45 AM. My three nice fish last week were in the 9:15 to 10:15 time period. If anybody else has caught a nice fish or a bunch of fish during the morning hours, please chime in with the weigh and time period. Thanks, Mac

    Well, I think the blues bite good on Badin, b/c when I can find 'em I catch 'em. The problem is finding the blues. They like to play hide and seek down there. AS catfishrus said, Badin will make you or break you! It's broke me a few times!

    Yeah , I believe you were using some bad scales on my fish, I think they weigh each fish about 20lbs. less than the true weight....:lol:
