    We went out about 7:00pm caught a bunch of yellow tail shad, and put in the water below the Pickwick dam. The water temp was 85.5 degs, fishing the slack side with just a little current. They had two generators on at the time. We fished for until 9:00pm when they turned the generators off. We caught 7 blues average size 15 lbs measured witha scale. One large fish we guess 35+ Littlebigman says bigger than that and I belive it was, scale only goes to 20lbs. The picture will show you, he had a really time handling the fish, so I offered an extra hand. The second photo the fish weighed in at 15 1/2lbs. We seemed to have found them, in the last three times we have been out with a average fishing time of 2 hours we have landed a fish over 30lbs. All fish have been released. It sure is a lot of fun.

    It's hard to judge what the big one weighed. Doesn't seem to have much of a 'pot' belly. Nice fish regardless. Thanks for sharing.
