    I woke up friday morning to find a blue on one of four bank poles that probably went around 25 lbs or 30 lbs. I then decided to put in on the muddy and fish, it looked like the bad storms had already gone through. Wrong! well myself my nephew and two friends rode it out on my boat, but what the heck we were fishing. After the wind and rain died down a little we went farther south. We ended up finding a large tree that had slid down the bank into an old log jam. Man they were biting, we caught 5 blues and 2 flatheads ranging in size from 15 to 4 lbs. All out of that one hole on live and cut bluegill. Just wanted to share.

    Sounds like you had your self a fun fishing trip im glad to hear that you caught you some catfish, sounds like it was a productive day for you, glad to hear that you caught some and good luck from here on out, and hopefully you will be able to catch some more fish.

    I finally get to tag along friday! Been so busy with work, two houses, 1 teenager, 3 dogs, and a "needing to be retired" husband, I have had no time to fish. That will all change Friday. Honey, tell the boys they will have to find someone else to guide for them cause the wife IS NOT SHARING TONTO this friday!
