    today vern and myself hit the river outa milton ky we went down river got some 6 to 13 inch shad out of one of the creeks and headed up river we tried a couple spots along the indiana shore above madison before we found the fish . the water was up quite a bit atleast 5 ft from thursday when i went , the wind today was bad i thought , i dont like it blowing up river makes for some rough riding with three ft or higher swells in the middle of the river . so any how we anchored in a spot that i had caught blues before , cast all our lines out 12 rods in all , the boat looked like a porcupine lol . most of the fish we caught were in the shallows , i was casting up on the bank in the weeds managed to pull 4 channels out of 1.5 ft of water one was atleast 12# the others were smaller i also caught a blue about 15# from near the bank and a flat about 1# lol the same area , i caught one blue out in the river in a 30 ft eddie hole we were sitting near , it was probly 20# . vern caught 2 blues one about 4# and the other bout 12# we were using the same bait but he just didnt have my attitude or luck lol all total we caught nine cats , had fun and spent the day together , i love my brother he is a good fishing partner if it hadnt been for him catching bait and dipping my fish i would not have had such a good time , thanks vern for being there once again
