    Well after talking about it for about 6 months, me and S-Man(Skip) finally got to met up and head to the Ohio River. It turned out to be a pretty good day, 38 degrees, 27.2 on the cincinnati gauge, and Meldahl was running 18 ft of water through the dam. It was a little windy at times, but other than that, you couldnt ask for better conditions for winter time blue cattin.We ended up with 8 fish, 4 over 20 pounds, and even caught a spoonbill..The coolest thing though was getting to see skip catch his first blue ever..The scales were a little off, one said 26, and one said 23 i think..But regardless, it was a good fish, and im glad he was able to put it in the boat..Here are some pics of the fish we caught, we didnt get Skips fish on my camera, but we took a pic of it with his...He is on his way home right now and will post it when he gets home. I just wanted to tell everyone if they ever get a chance to fish with Skip, do it, he is a good guy, and great company on the boat..I had a great time fishing with a fellow BOC member that likes cat fishing just as much as me.Cant wait to do it again.

    Well Skip was so excited and was in such a hurry to get a pic, we didnt even think about getting a pic on my camera...LOL...No that blue bit about 5 minutes after we got there, and Skip got his camera out, so it just slipped our mind to get a pic with my camera...But he will post pics as soon as he gets home.

    Matt, thanks for a good day on the water. I tell you guys that man can sense catfish under the boat lol. Every place we anchored up at we caught multiple fish. They turned off completely after 3 pm, but I think that was because the wind stopped blowing finally. I got my first blue, and got to see my first Spoonbill lol. Thanks again Matt and Mark. I'll be back again for sure.

    I'm gonna mess with this camera now lol, hope to post a photo or two in a few.

    My advice would be for him to stay down in kentuck. I hear the fish down there are slow witted and in-bred. He would have trouble up here. I hope you can talk some sense to him lol.
