    Just rolled in and caught 4 okay sized blues. Kept three for the fryer for this evening. The bait of choice was... sporatic. I did not get ANY on cut shad or even shad minnows. I caught 2 on cut bluegill, 1 on chicken gizzards/hotdog, and 1 on a SLUG. My father found a huge slug and thanks to the BOC... someone reported having luck with it. Sure enough, a 7lb blue crushed the slug, the biggest one for the day. Strange stuff that!
