trolled hot side for an hour no luck tried drifting with livers, crawlers and cut shad. no luck. basically put boat up on hot side east shoreline to get out of wind. caught about 35 channels on cut bait and crawlers. my buddy caught about a 15 pound blue cat off the bottom right off the rocks on cut shad. very impressive fat fish. all but 8 fish released for dinner. big cat also lives to fight another day. rough waters no bass but fun time had by all catching kitties!
