Default the last week

I have been on vacation the last week......... mostly I been catfishing and frankly caught plenty probably about 15 total all between 2-7 lbs.

but that is not the reason for my post ..... while getting ready to go out one morning I went by the boat launch at the Rivals lookout park in richie........... and I seen another boat getting ready to put looked kinda weird from a distance........... so I drove up .......... it was a shocking team contracted by exxelon where they have a pumping and discharge station near where I live......

I chatted with them a bit .......quite friendly they were ............immediately went home and got my boat and more or less followed them, they shock for 15-20 minutes throwing anything that comes up into a large livewell then they find a shady spot count and measure and weigh the fish they catch.

I went up during one of their counting and measuring breaks ( parked my boat right next to them ) and seen what they had brought up..... from where I stand "good news" I personally counted 5 fingerling walleye....... prob about 10-15 smallies (small lil ones ......) a lot of I gonna call em all blue gill.........but I consider quite a few speicies all bluegill......... many many many baitfish .......a couple of small suckers

Now none of the fish I seen had any size at all to them but they told me they dont catch many large fish as that is not really their goal.

So now I have personally seen what is in there ......... not so much gloom and doom as I have been fearing
