I had asked Ron about fishing Sunday but he had Family in town so I had to go it alone. I did not get off to a real early start this morning. I arrived at the River about 7:15 or so and was greeted with pretty low and murky water conditions. I brought my shotgun along on this trip but the Ducks were a no show so I preceded down stream in search of bait. I seined and threw a cast net without much luck ( about 20 more than normal minnows). I put three on a hook with a float set about four feet deep and fished the edge of a rapid/drop off and caught a couple of Gaspers which quickly became cut bait. I set off to fish a few holes that are pretty reliable producers without any luck at all. About 12:00 I decided to untie and head for one more spot about a mile and a half farther downstream before calling it a day. I pulled up and decided to bank fish for awhile to stretch my legs. Got the first rod holder and pole set out and almost immediately a hard hit. After a small fight I landed the first Blue of the day. I set back out and caught several more nice chunky Blues. About 1:00 my small spinning reel bends over and starts laying drag hard so I grab it and the fight was on. After 10 or so minutes I landed my second best Blue. Pretty well died after that so I fished another 45 minutes or so and started the long paddle back.

First spot I stopped for to gather bait. River is pretty dirty after the rains.

The big fish had been injured at some point in time.

Catfish will eat anything including other catfish.

The fish protector hard at work. No one will steal a piece while she is on Duty.

What the fish weighed:
27-7
6-9
6-6
6-2
5-3
