    My dad and I do most of our cat fishing from the banks of the rivers normally using cut bream as bait, well today was no different, we were on the banks of the Dan river in this chilly rough wind for a great part of the day. Well around 3 oclock as we were packing up our gear I got a pretty good hit so we decided to leave just that 1 in the holder as we packed it all up & im sure glad we did, that blue hammered my rod down, i set it and about 10 minutes later i had my PB 33lbs 40in long blue cat!:smile2::smile2: Im trying to post the picture but this site says it an invalid file image.. the only thing we had to take the pic was my cellphone but it turned out pretty good. anyone having a idea of how 2 get the pic on here, please help. Keep tight lines!!:wink:

    Thanks again everybody! Slow day today, water level has dropped in the Dan sum since yesterday. Thanks again Kenneth for the help with the pic, now if I can just get it to load up as my avitar & profile pic I think i'll be straight.

    Nice blue and welcome to the BOC. The Dan is loaded with white perch right now. A few flatheads over 40lbs have been caught latly and decent blues, you have the biggest I've heard of so far.
