We found about the only place on the lake you could fish with the wind blowing a hard 10 mph and gusting to 15 mph and we put out 5 lines for big fish.
We missed our spot the first time and only caught a couple of box fish.
On the 2nd drift we zeroed in a little better and Lee caught a 28" fish.
Just a little after noon the big girl came calling on a gust of wind and Lee hooked up and said, "It's a big fish".
Ken and I grinned when his rod bowed over nicely and the fight was on.
The fish did a good job, but Lee was more determined and we put her in the boat for pictures and measurements.
Apparently full of eggs, she weighed about 40 pounds and was only 40" long, a fatty!
We called it quits at about 2:30 and had caught 15 or so blue cats from 3 to 40 pounds.
We had kept 3 box fish, but gave them away at the ramp and made a clean get away for some hamburgers!

The big girls are very ripe with eggs at this time, and they are fantastic spawning fish.
They are also very heavy with huge bellies of roe, and we treat them as gently as we can and get them back in the water asap.
They make millions of baby blue cat fish every year when they are big like that one.

Ed's is now something else, and it used to be terrific catfishing in the timber out from their launch!
We fish from the mid-lake area down to just South of Pine island, depending on the wind.
