we went fishing on the illinois river at about 4 this afternoon. almost right away i catch a 21” channel catfish, this is my husband showing it for me.

then the nina & pinta come by on their way from lake michigan to the ohio river.  http://www.thenina.com/

the catfish completely quit biting about 6, but my husband catches a 3’+ gar. no pic.

not long afterwards a barge gets stuck on a sandbar.

it took awhile, but they finally got the barge loose, and back underway.

weird day.

What do you use for bait when going for the illusive cats?
