Me and my buddy got our hands on some shad last friday. So on sat. morning we went out to my uncle's dock on the river (clark county area) and cut up some of that shad to use for bait. I was using the mid section of a 6 or 7 inch shad on my first cast at about 9:15 a.m. and in only 10 or 15 min. the bait clicker on my 7000 C3 started goin crazy. I set the hook on what felt like a monster, and brought in a new personal record. It was a 23lb. 4oz. Bluecat. Which beats the hell out of my old record of 9lbs. Anyone else doin any good on the ohio river this year?
