WylieCat and myself went to Mtn. Island this morning to scout for some good locations to catch some Ark. Blues for an upcoming event to be held there. We got started a little after 7:30 AM and had very little wind and little or no current. Water temp. was in the low 50's and water was stained. We decided to anchor in several spots to see what kind of bite we could develope. We had gizzard shad, thread fin shad, white perch and a special bait that Capt. Ron Howard gave us last night at the Carolinas Catfish Club meeting. We first spot we stopped at we got an 18.10 pound blue and an 8+ pound blue, plus a striper. Next hole offered us a dink and the last two places nothing but a couple of tugs. We thank Capt. Ron very much for the bait he gave us and without it we would not have caught a single fish.
