Fishstixs called me yesterday morning around 11:00 wanting to know if i would like to go catch a few cats, at that time the temp was at 38 degrees . By 1:00 we were on the water and the temps had warmed up to where we had to shed our coats. I had a small channel in the boat with in a few minutes after putting out our rods. Then fishstix followed up with another nice channel. Then we both started slam'n some blues. . We fished about 4 hours and ended the day with a 14 lber. each being our big fish . The water temp was at 43 compared to 38 last week so the bite should only get better with the rising temps. GOOD LUCK AND GOOD FISHING !!!!!!!!!!!
