    I had a special guest for my trip to the deep water this morning. Jackie, my Jack Russel, indicated that she wanted to go, so I assisted her getting in the boat. We found the water temp. to be 88 degrees and wind was out of the SE at 5 to 10 MPH from the get go. Bait of choice was Karl's special bait, plus some large Gizzard Shad which I cut into nice size chunks. The Gizzard Shad caught about the same number as the special bait, but larger cats overall. I ended up with 16 or 17 blues, half in the 7 to 8+ pound range. Total fishing time was 3.5 hours.

    Karl was in the area and when I left at 10 AM, he and his partner had caught 26 blues at that time. He was there before day light and had 7 or 9 before I started. He was only using his special bait.

    Robert Wood and my other buddy Cliff were also out there and they were struggling to catch any cats at all.

    On the way back in I spotted a jug with a cat on it. I stopped and found that it had no markings on it and thus, I looked upon it as being an illegal jug and thus, found it to be litter and removed it from the lake.

    Interesting to me is that the oily menhaden from the coast was not appealing to the inland cats. hmmm...
