I went fishing yesterday and kept getting little pecks, finally put a little 1/0 hook on one rod and started catching a bunch of little bitty cats. A flat and a couple of blues were only about 4", I'm not sure how they even got the hook in thier mouths. I kept a couple of blues and four channels in the 12" to 14" range to eat. My questions came when I cleaned them. (1)Why were the channels all very yellow along the top of the back when the skin was off?, the blues weren't.(2) Two of the channels were full of eggs, with 83F-85F water in late june shouldn't they have been done with the spawn?
