    Good going, Josh! Sounds like they're starting to turn on again.

    What kind of structure were you fishing? Flats? Scour holes?

    Thanks guy's.. Yeah I hope this is sign of things to come. Fishing in tournaments the next two weekends so we will see if the bite stays good. The cooler weather should be nice this weekend as well.

    Josh, good luck at the tournament this Friday. Was reading about last year's tournament there, 65lbs was the big fish and it took almost 170lbs to win! Way out of my league! They are expecting this years tournament to have a good outcome as well. I would like to go to the weigh in Saturday morning, but will be working. I'll just have to stay in town and see if I can catch something myself. Let us know how you do!

    Actualy, this weekend tourny is in Lexington I Think the weigh in is at 8 AM Sun.

    Next weekend There is a tourny in Waverly. weigh in is Sat the 28th 8 AM.

    Last weekend In the waverly tourny they had 55 boats, only 100 some odd lbs took it. but it seems like the fishing is looking up, I've been hearing some good news.

    We were doing the monday night cattin thing again but not so much success. about midnight, I had one of My rods double over and the fish started taking drag. but as I was getting the rod out of the holder I felt it turn towards Me and then was gone!!!! I'm still not sure how that fish didn't get hooked!!!
