    I caught my PB Bluecat today as well as one more that beat my yearly record of 6lbs. It was a beautiful day on the river as well, temp was an astounding 63 degrees, partly cloudy skys, and the river was on a slow fall. The river was at 24.68 @ 217kcfs, Wind out of the WSW 10 to 12mph.
    Dankitch(new member) and, his son Danny and I went out at around 11:00am this morning. we decided to try a spot that neither of us had tried before. We marked a few solitary fish along the edge of the main channel and decided to try our luck. Though it was only 28' deep we dropped anchor above them to see what would happen. We got hit after hit but no takers untill 1:30pm. Man what a hit.... when I set the hook, he just sat there(no big run). I knew then that the dry spell was over. It took about 5 minutes to land it and to my surprize it was a really nice one, 34.7lbs.
    We only caught two more. I caught one more(8.1) and Danny caught an 11.3. Batteries in the camera went dead taking the pics of the first one, Sorry!!!
    Over all it was a great Day on the Ohio River!!!

    First of all let me say congrats to you JW on your PB blue...I'm glad I was there to witness it. Second of all let me say that contrary to popular opinion there was no pink involved today. (at least from where I was sitting.) And finally...I want to thnk JW again...my oldest son (13 years old) is visiting for Christmas now and went with us today. JW mad him feel like he was very welcome to be in his boat. They picked on each other all day. My son had a very good time and the fish he caught before he goes back home was a plus. THANKS JW!!!
