    The day was kind of so-so. Ended up with a 16, 20, 29, and 43. I finally found a spot in the afternoon where the bite was good....had two hard pulldowns that came unbuttoned. I was about to leave and was reeling in my first pole when another went down and the fish started running. It was the 43, which fought really hard, thought I had something alot bigger on. I packed a bag in case I decided to fish Sunday as well, but I had a decent day, so I called it a day and came back home. Will get back out in a few weeks. There was a ton of debris in the river, made running back to the ramp at dark kind of tricky.

    When I left the house yesterday it was 22 degrees cold start to a nice day. I went down to the Wilcox pier. It was a slow day. I pulled in a couple dozen or so small cats. Most I didn't know were even on the line till I pulled them in to check my bait. Thats how small they were. I always see people fishing down around an old pier, about the 2nd or 3rd old pier remains down from the Wilcox wharf. That may be a hole to catch some big ones if you ever are down that way.

    Hey Josh, good report. We were down Saturday as well. We saw you on the lower end of Presquile. That was us in the big jon boat, three of us. Taht hole we were fishing when you went by gave up a 43 and a 46 for us. We caught a 32 and a 28 at another spot. We caught a bunch of fish in the teens too. Every spot we fished there must have been hundreds of small cats. All nine poles were dancing all day like piano keys. I'd like to know how many catfish are in that river. Bait was a little tricky for us. Only caught 3 cutters, but plenty of 6-8 inchers. In fact, we caught all the big ones on small shad. I thought that tourney was saturday, but it wasn't. Awesome day weather wise. Tons of wood floating around and super strong outgoing tide. Might go back this weekend.

    Now I know the double secret spot. here I thought Mike and I were special when you shared with us at the picnic. My heart is broken but not so much as to forget the good spot. Thanks for being one of the true teachers and good guys on the river Cameron!
