In my Fall/Winter thread I imformed you brothers and sisters that this was the time to get yourself a trophy blue. Well, was I right or what! Since them tomahawk has caught a 60 plus pounder and this week a 75 pounder. Karl Emerson and Jerry Hilderbran went to the James River and got a 78 +- pounder. Brother Price has caught some trophy cats in Tenn., Mtn. Island and LKN. A fellow from the Piedmont caught a 75 pound blue (not verfied by me,yet) on LKN a couple of weeks ago. Killentime and his partner caught a 40 to 50 pounder on Badin Lake a couple of weeks ago. Catfishrus caught a nice blue on Badin a couple weeks ago. Gearhead has caught some trophy fish in the past week or two. CMJ has caught some trophy fish in the past week or two. I'm sure I left someone out, maybe they will reply. These are just the Piedmont North Carolina guys, not counting what the guys in the Piedmont section of South Carolina have caught. Did they have to put up with the wind and the cold to get these trophy cats, you bet they did and I will bet you that they are glad they did.
