    Brother Karl Emerson and myself went to the deep water to fish this morning. Water temp. was 88 plus degrees, wind was out of the NW at 3 to 15 MPH, sky was overcast with lite sprinkles most of the time. We got the baits in the water around 6:25 and took them out at 10:00 AM. We had gizzard shad, white perch and some new bait that Karl wanted to try out. The new bait was the reddish brown streak found in catfish and striper's, which he had marinated in a special solution. The Gizzard Shad was hot for the first 15 or 20 minutes, then Karl's special bait was the ticket. We had ten down lines out at 40 feet +- and at times Karl had a hard time holding the boat on the fish. We were fishing around a drop off close to a hump in 70 to 90 feet of water. At 7 AM we had seven fish in the boat and it did not let up to the end. We might of had the best production time for either of us for such a short period of time. Total blue cat count was 37:big_smile: What a morning!
