Took my brother in law Mike and his friend Johnny to Tillery on 4/15/13. They got a dozen blues with the biggest, Mike's 39.4
Had a good day numbers wise for blues, got 15 but the biggest just 27.7 lbs, the rest from around 6 lbs to upper teens. The best part of the day was getting a 47.6 lb flathead, he put up a great fight.
Fished Tillery again today, took my son, we ended up with 11 blue cats and 1 flathead. The biggest blue went 35.1 lbs, the rest were 6 to 22 lbs. The flathead around 14 lbs, didn't weigh. The water temp was in the low to mid 50's depending on location.

Went to Badin this morning, knowing the wind was going to be tuff again, bait was hard to get, finally found a few gizzards. Ended up with 7 blues and 1 channel. The biggest two blues were, 24.7 and 34.10. Finally had enough of the wind at around 11:00 am and called it.
Late post, but had a good day with a couple of decent fish on 2/27. Caught 13 blues, no monsters but a couple in the 30's and a couple in the 20's. Fished two more times since then caught several fish but all small, the wind has been tough on the days I could go !
Fished this morning, got four blues with the biggest 58.8 lbs. He gave me a fit, one of the best if not the best fight a blue has ever gave me. Here's a couple of pics
Nice to see them in the January issue. Winter is a good time to catch big blue cats.
Fished a Catfish Tourney this past saturday on Badin. The bite was slow , we got two bites all day, missed one, got the other, it was a 35.4 lb. blue that got us second place in the tourney and big fish, so it wasn't all bad. The winners had 49 lbs with two flatheads. Fifteen teams fished the tourney that had a two fish limit. Here's a picture of my partner with our blue.
Young Coyotes cleaned out my deer apples in one evening !!!
