Only had a few hours to fish this morning. I looked at a couple shallow spots, didn't find much. Went back to general area I fished last week, but a little deeper (thank you Mr. Kennedy).
Found bait and fish 28 to 35 feet. Got bait and started. Couple big shad cut baits, rod w chicken and one with small shad.
Half hour in had a good hit on small shad rod I was holding. Fight was on. Was by myself, so pics were not the best. Weighed 31.55 on my scale. CPR, to fight another day!
Finally, a good fish.
Now looking to break 40!
Thanks everyone here that has helped me get to this point with the blue cats. Still a rookie, but a cherry busted, deep hooked rookie now! And I need a bigger net!
Stay safe everyone.
