Joe & I got our lines in the water at 08:10 at our favorite place. The river had some current today for a change. Joe boated a small Channel cat that hit his SMOKIES at 09:13. He had been getting a number of taps on that bait earlier. He got his 2nd channel at 09:28 I hooked into a 5 pound Channel cat that like French fries at 09:50. We started checking out other spots. We marked fish, but no bites. Went back to our first spot and caught 2 more fish. I got a 3.5 pound flathead that took a piece of cut skipjack. While I was measuring out this fish Joe boated a ¾ pound channel. All of Joe's cats were cuaght with the SMOKIES. We headed home from the ramp with a satisfying feeling for this trip.
