    I'm happy to report that JimmyJonny got his biggest Blue ever on Tuesday morning at Hartwell.
    We got on the lake at 3am, caught four dozen herring and threadfins under the crappie light right out from the boat ramp in 25 feet of water. He even got a huge skipjack in the cast net. We then beached the old pontoon boat at the same place as last Thursday where we got that monster he told you about in an earlier post.
    We put out 6 rods, half with cut bait and half with live bait. By daybreak we had caught 3 stripers, then JimmyJonny hung into a BIGGUN! He ran and ran, peeling line each time he changed directions. We thought he would NEVER run out of gas! There's nothin' else like the sight of a big blue when he rolls over on his side as the net slips under him. I was happy I didn't have to jump in after him, as JimmyJonny did for me last Thursday when he beached my big blue.
    JimmyJonny's personal best BlueCat weighed 23 pounds! I'm hoping he'll post photos for you all - it was a beauty!
    Congratulations to JimmyJonny, he's a darn good fishin' buddy and we've had great success on Hartwell recently because we ACTUALLY GO FISHIN' every chance we get. Hope to see y'all out there, too.

    LOL, I was just getting ready to write a post and here you already did... Thank you Sir.

    Here he is guys. I really love our blues here on Hartwell and I hope to see many more. I gotta lot of catching up to do if I wanna catch the Captain. Hmm then again you are 15yrs older so technically I have 15yrs to catch up ; )

    My last Pb was 20.2 lb and this one was 23 lb. Didn't break it by much but I'll take it ; )

    Thanks for the post Jim. As always I had a great time....cya Thursday.
