    Hit another bank spot on the Big O tonight with my buddy Steve.
    Had bad luck getting bait, what we did catch we used live.
    Had bad luck with snags, lost 5 rigs or so.
    Way too much barge traffic, at least 8 - 9 barges went by.

    Got into 4 fish, one being a .99 lb flathead :smile2:, a 9.2 lb channel, a 6.7 lb flathead, and a 22.6 lb blue. The blue was the first catfish I've caught all year on live bait, hit the bait after being in the water for 3 hours or so. Hit it like a train and never looked back. :big_smile: Catching this blue set a nice record for me to beat, and hopefully I get my chance to double it!

    Here's some pics.

    PS: Just want to thank everyone on here one more time who has helped me the past few months to really teach me new things. Without the advice and outings, this would've never happened.

    nice looking fish guys. Congrats on the personal best james...thats a nice blue especially for being limited to the bank man. Better than i ever did bank fishing. You guys seem to have been doing well and the river looks to be turning on....hopefully it stays that way for when i get home and my fishing doesnt get killed by a lot of pleasure boaters. :confused2:

    Thanks man, and judging by other reports and the experience, the river seems like it's turning on. I'm always discouraged bank fishing this river because it's so large and seems my odds are always against me when I can't move around on a boat. This stretch of bank is about 400 yards long and is all private property. It's a deep hole too, can't wait to see wait the ole' finder shows off as far as cover and fish - because there is a ton of snags if you don't know the proper places to cast. :confused2:
