    Had a good time fishing last night. THe bite was fairly good last night. We didnt catch any giants but ended up boating around 100 pounds of catfish. the biggest being at 26 pounder. Seemed that the bait of choice was shad. The bite really turned on around 9:00 PM and lasted till about 2:00 AM, then it just shut off. Had a couple really nice fish on but lost them. We were fishing around Louisiana MO. Half of the fish that we caught were beat to heck, I am hoping that means they are finally getting off the beds and starting to eat. It seems as though sand bottoms was the key. I will try to post a couple picks if i can get my camera to work right. The best part of the night, my partner finally broke his funk for the year. lat night was the first fish that he has caught all year. And thats after fishing every other weekend for hours at a time. I've never seen someone so happy to catch a 15 pounder. (alot of high fives)
