    Well Danny and I took off for the Ohio River last night to try our luck on some bluecats. We ended up with a pretty good night but lost several fish too.

    We had 94 pounds of fish with 7 in the boat after fishing about 5 hours. The fish bite was on pretty good and we had a good current on the Ohio River. We were rigged up with 7-10 inch skipjacks.

    We started out really good first fish in the boat was Danny's 21 pounder and then about 10 Minutes later I got a 22 Pounder, and then I got a 20 pounder all within a 45 Minute span, We thought holly cow we are going to have a great night. But the fish were going to mess with us as the night went on. They started grabbing the bait on the ends and doubling over the poles as we went to lift up the road it would come out of there mouth. Most of the fish were laying right on the bottom dug into the mud, all the fish had mud all over there belly's.

    We ended up with two 10 pounders a 9 pounder and then a 2 pounder all on cut skip jack. But we lost around 7 to 10 fish too. For some reason the fish were hitting but only on and off for eating the entire bait. But we had a good night on fishing.

    Day time here has prov-en to be hard the last few days but night time we are still able to get a few fish. With this last weeks cold front that came thru it kind of knocked us down a few pegs. It looks as if the end of the week might turn out to be a very good weekend for fishing at night, and who knows maybe the day time too.

    Here is three pictures of our largest fish last night:

    Thanks for the invite last night Eric. Too bad the whole night didn't end up like the first hour was.
