    Alands (Aaron) and I went out today, caught 10 Bluecats. Aaron caught an 18 lb. Blue and I caught a 16 lber. The rest were between 3 and 8 lbs.

    Here's a couple pics!

    Where at? I was there today with bluegill, shad, and nightcrawler. Only caught a bunch of little ones all day.

    We drifted the power plant area from the 20 foot down to the 5foot drift.. rinse and repeated

    Early morning was the best, the bite shut down about 12:30-1:00.
