Launched Saturday morning at about 6:45 am for my usual Mississippi River skunk-fest. Fished all day and only caught a gar and a drum. Tried tailwaters, wing dikes, shallows, barges, pilings etc........... Had never been on the river after dark so I decided I would just stay. I anchored an easy boat ride from the ramp though because I was alone and a little worried about being out there. Caught 5 catfish (dinks) and an 11lb 8oz blue. Some of you guys would call that blue a dink but thats fine. I had a blast getting it to the net by myself in the dark. Oh yeah, lost another good one when I broke my line. Anyway, I am stoked and my new boat has a little more fish slime in it and that, my friends is a good thing.:big_smile: I fished for 17 hours, man I'm ignorant.
