Arrived at the location at 5:45 P.M. EST. Wind was nil , but they had the gates open and the water was rising fast. Baits were livers and cutbait. Water temp. was 75 degrees. For the previous 3 years , I'd been coming down here to no avail. Only caught 2 3 inch bream from here in that span of time. Little did I know tonight , it would all reach a crescendo. I became bored after 2 hours with no mercy from the current. I was about to go try to find a way to fish the area immediately above the dam. Began talking to myself about how I'd never seen anyone catch anything down there. I had my rod propped on a tree when those words crossed my lips - WHOOSH!! - the fish hit!! Luckily , I was using the Gamakatsu size 7 circles and for a moment , I thought the fish had escaped. It hadn't!! Turned out to be a 4 pound blue:cool2:!! With the acceleration of the bites , I decided to remain and caught a 1 pound blue which was released. Departed at 12:30 Sunday morning. All in all , I was always a believer in this area as a producer , but was less than enthusiastic about the lack of access to the slack area on the far side of the peninsula. Now , my theories concerning this area are proven , finally!!
