    MAn was it foggy this morning. Couldn't see much of anything. I finally made it up river and anchoered out. I caught 7 channels and two blues. The first blue was at 35lbs. Didn't get any pictures of him. The second blue was big one. When i set the hook on him he really took off. It took about 25min to get him in. He weighted out at 65lbs. Thats the biggest blue I've caught from Tillery. Man what a fish. I forgot how hard they are bringing over the side of the boat by yourself. I knew someone was going to catch a big from Tillery it was just a matter of time. If you go out there, watch out there's alot logs floating down river. Water temp was at 48*. Great morning on the water. See-ya.

    I fished Tillery today too, kind of hate give my report after Tomahawks. Nice fish, the biggest I've seen out of Tillery. I hope I see another one like that but on the end of my line.......:big_smile: I ended up with 8 blues from 8 to 23 lbs. , 1 channel and 1 white. That fog was tough, it was after 12 noon before I saw the sun. Congrats on the big one Tomahawk.

    Good to see the big ones are biting at Tillery. Robert, don't over do it trying to boat those big ones. Don't want you to spend any more time in the hospital.

    catrod thats a good question on the lake record. i remember a few years ago a young boy caught a big blue off a pier at tillery with a piece of hotdog but i cannot remeber the weight to save my life. i remember seeing the picture at bps in charlotte. i know it was in the 60-70lbs range. man im getting old....lol. anyone else remember this?

    I heard of a 73 pounder caught by someone fishing from a pier a few years back but can't confirm it.

    What did you catch that 65lb on? was you anchored on bottom or drifting? We fished lake Norman today and caught 2 small fish drifting with cut gizzard shad. Was a slow day.
