I used to catch some nice channels and blues, along with flatheads, trolling crankbaits on lakes back in S. Illinois. Got a 40 lb blue one time trolling a crankbait shallow in the hot summer nearly 9 mph. Are there any places like that around here where they readily take artificials that you know of? There were times on crab orchard you'd hook a 8-10 pound channel cat trolling every 100 feet.

Oh gag me with a spoon.

Simms- next time you get Nancy in the boat, make her reel that thing the "left" way instead of the right way.

BTW- June 8 is the deadline. I just downloaded the entry forms. You and Gil better have some guidas going. I'm strong this year \:\)

Yea, there are times the blues get on bass structure. I had a buddy on Nickajack who caught three trophy-class blues, on consecutive casts with a crankbait, on Nickajack not long agao.

But typically blues are big lazy beasts who aren't going to work to hard for their food. They prefer dead meat that simply floats into their mouth. Channels and flatheads are generally much more active and aggressive. We frequently catch good channel cats while fishing bluegill beds this time of year. They love to maraud bluegill nests for the eggs.

I'm glad they had a good trip. Even though I haven't been fishing with you, I recommended you to him at work. I've been wanting to bring my girls for a half a day trip just can't seem to line our schedules up. I can't believe they kept that many fish. They are probally still cleaning fish. \:\)
