Well went out this morning to the Old Lock and Dam off of hwy 167. I got there just after daylight and got my poles out. The smaller poles I set with chicken livers and chunk bait. My two big cat rods I set out after I caught some bream to put on them. I got a couple hits but no takers. There were some really big fish hitting the surface. I'm not sure what all of them were but I hope they were big blues. I did see one fish hit the surface and recognized it as a gar but, I don't think all of the fish that were hitting the surface were gar. They didn' t hit the surface in the same way. Any way that got my hopes up that I might catch a good one down there some day but I guess it wasn't meant to be this day. I only tightlined off the bottom today. I didn't take any bobbers with me but, next time I will and fix one rod with a bobber and fish one on the bottom. That's all I have to report for now I'll post some pics of my location later.
