It was a cloudy raining day for most of the day. Weights were exceptionally good considering the weather and what I thought was a terrible bite. I struggled all day in my backyard. My non-boater had a great bag of just under 18 but I just couldn't get the bite going. He was catching them all morning at a much better pace than I was.

As the afternoon progressed the bite for both of us slowed to a crawl. I finally caught my limit and thought I was heading in the right direction with a 4+lber and then I had a huge one on for a while then while just going to net her she came undone. Saw her clearly next to the boat...was definitely in the 5+ class area. Would have given me at least respectable weight for the day since I had a 2lber I coudln't replace. When you only catch two big fish all day and lose one of them things aren't going to end well on the River.

The fish seemed to be really scattered and not hanging where they usually are. We would catch one and then nothing else in that area. The seemed to be more interested in a tube that anything else.
