Today was a great day--started out with the intention of fishing for sauger and stripe, but after a couple of hours with nothing but skipjack, we decided to anchor down and catfish fish. By dark, we had 27 good catfish, and the final fish of the day was awesome. Matt caught a 35lb blue cat just before we were leaving. After a 30+ minute fight on 8lb line, he wore the old fish down and got her in the boat. Proved to be a great ending to a great day!
All the fish were caught on cut skipjack, and I hope to have some boxed up to sell at the shop later this week. We used light tackle all day, varying from 4 to 8lb line with a couple of #2 splitshot and a #2 baitholder. The catfish were really on today!!
