    My brother is here from Atlanta and he wanted to go fishing. We decided to give it a try and put in on the Mississippi. Bait was easy to come by but the blues weren't! We fished for four hours and only caught four fish.

    At least we got the chance to hang out. When we were younger, we used to give the catfish a hard time. I guess it is rough when you get old.:smile2:

    Congrats Chris. I'd say catching 4 fish was a job well done. Been out there this time of year and found myself with the Skunk more times than I can count. Nice you got to spend some time with him. Thanks for the story. Where did you find the fish? Any sort of pattern working?

    John, they were so few and far between I am afraid to call it a pattern. We were fishing the edges of the washout behind the wing dikes. We marked a lot of fish that seemed to be what we were looking for. They just had locked jaw.

    20 or 30 lbs of fish in 4 hrs is not bad glad you could hang with your brother:big_smile:

    I fished at St. Charles yesterday Chris. I only got one blue about a pound and a half. Plenty of bait though. So you got to spend a day with your brother and catch a few fish. Not bad in my eyes. Just dont answer the phone when Dink calls

    I would have to agree with the others here Chris, sounds like a good day with your brother. I haven't caught a catfish in over 2 months.

    I believe our beloved punkin was in Florida fishing for some of those two legged Warsaw Groupers that are famous for getting 400-500 pounds or bigger. :smile2::smile2::smile2:

    I think our old buddy Cuz has been hitting the sauce again. I was fishing for Goliath grouper and managed to catch a few of them. Now for the two legged coment I can only assume that he is reffering to a girl I was down there visiting.:roll_eyes: I see how it is buddy.
