Well I hit the river today with my partner Mark (Salmonid) We launched out of Tanners Creek today to pre-fish for the tournament next Saturday there. We got the "Bottom Dweller" in the water around 5:30 AM and fished until about 3. Got some shad right there in the creek and then moved up to catch some skipjack. Caught 4 8 inchers or so but nothing big today. It started to rain around 8:30 and pretty much rained all day....it was enough to be annoying and we got pretty soaked and a lot of water in the boat hahaha. We managed 14 fish today (2 small flatheads, 4 blues, and 8 channel cats) We missed a couple fish, but had a good time. All but 2 of the fish were caught in new spots so that was nice. Biggest fish of the day was Mark's 12.5 pound blue which was a wierd hit. 2 very faint taps so we were watching the rod, and then it was pulled down so fast that the tip was in the water and drag was coming off the reel!!! Pretty sweet hit. All in all a good day and it was nice to be out. Hopefully the fish will bite next weekend for us.
