    Hit the river with Mark (Salmonid) today. Went to the public landing today and the water was rolling pretty fast over the concrete slabs so we headed up to Schmidt. The dock was under water but it blocked the current so it was easy to launch. We worked our way through all the drift and the fog and got bait. After getting bait the fog had actually gotten worse and there was very limited visability out. Ended up clearing up and it turned out to be a very nice day out.

    I started the day off with a 7 pound channel, then moved to another spot and Mark caught a 6 pound flathead. Then I got a 1 pound flathead and another 7 pound channel.

    Moved to another spot and Mark picked up 2 more channels and a nice 6 pound hybrid striper on a shad head.

    Moved to the next spot and this is where things got good. Not even 5 minutes at this spot Marks rod gets buried and drag is being ripped off. After a nice fight we see and net a nice 21 pound blue cat. Couple minutes after that another rod gets buried another nice fish on, but then gets off where the hook came off somehow. About 10 minutes after that my rod gets buried and as soon as I pick it up, the fish takes off about 15-20 feet of drag, ended up being a very healthy 14 pound blue.

    We fished a lot of new water today including the spot where we caught the blues.

    We both got the catfish trifecta which is always nice.

    It was a good day.

    Pictures of the blues and the hybrid are attached.

    did you guys try to get out of the current or stay in it??? The reason why I ask is because you guys must have been doing something right. Just out of curiousity what type of depths were you fellas fishin??

    Glad you guys got on some fish, we couldn't do squat! I am taking a week off and relaxing some...Looks like there is no way out of me sitting the tourney out Saturday, would get wooped anyway! LMAO Wish I could make it but it's just not worth an angry wife at the house...:confused2:...Thinking about selling the boat all together and getting something different. May be a good time for me to do so, just kind of getting burned out on fishing which I didn't think was possible..:eek:oooh:..Maybe a different boat to rip apart will do the trick!:smile2:

    Fished the current all day long. Depths were from right on the bank to about 35 feet.
