    What a fishery!! I am still learning the river and I am not getting the big numbers of large fish, but I am having a ball. We went out today and caught 28 catfish. I'd say 60% Blues and 40 % Channels. The best Channel was 6lbs and the best Blue was 28lbs. The best/worst part of the day was when my reel broke on one of my rods. I placed the rod back into the rod holder and grabbed one of my bass rods. I rigged the rod up for cats and threw it out. The rod had 14lb test on it and sure enough that is the rod that the 28lbder hit. After eighteen minutes of fighting the fish we got it in the boat. What a pig. I know that the seasoned guys on the board catch these size fish regularly, but that was the second largest fish I have caught in my life, and we had a ball. I attached two pics. One 11 lbder, and 1 28lbder.:lol:
