    :big_smile:We have had several great trips the last 3 weeks at night.But my fishing buddy got his best ever blue 45lb and 35lb tues night.Cut shad. Good job JR . We return all fish after taking pics over 10lb We keep mostly eaters around 3 to 5 lb . We never kill fish over 10lb.No reason to do that. Pic last alot longer, and the fish lives on to fight another day. Everyone should do the same. Good luck to all LET THE BIG FISH FIGHT ANOTHER DAY.:0a23:

    Thanks for the report, Dan.

    And double kudos for practicing Selective Harvest. Wish everyone who fished down there would do it - we'd have one helluva trophy blue cat fishery!

    Tell your buddy congrats on his pb. I like to see people set a new PB. I agree with Marty on the selective harvest. Keep it up.

    Congrats on a new personal best and reps to you for the selective harvest. That is an amazing fishery down there and with more people like you it will only improve.
