    went out on the white yesterday. it was way up an moving at a pretty good lick. we hammered the channel cats was hoping for a flatty or two but that never happened. no big one the biggest were just shy of 11lbs. we missed probably twice as many as we caught. they would load the the rod good and we would get them on but after fighting for a minute they would pop off. we lost two jumbo channels, we seen them when they surfaced. caught fish on fresh cut shad and cut bluegill. anywhere there was a current break or a good back eddy.
    here are some pics of what i caught. the double im am holding where the two biggest for the day. as soon as i got the one in the boat my other rod doubled and one of my buddies went over too.

    Great looking channels Buck.

    Where abouts are you located at on the White? I live in Martinsville and went out to day also. Pulled in 6 channels. The biggest was 4#.

    Glad to hear they're hittin' in the Bripple area. That's my usual stopping grounds...finally home from school and plan on fishing till I can't stand once this rain stops.
