    Well here is my story and im sticking to it,got to the river around 10am today and caught 65 fresh shad and put them on ice and headed out to the frist hole around 57ft of water around 11:30am we didnt mark a fish butt i knew they would b there after dropping the anchor and fighting with 17mph winds my first bite it didnt pull line or the clicker it just pulled the line tight and let it go a few times so i picked up the pole and timed it right and bam a 32lb flathead :wink:wow not bad for the first fish of the day and there we caught 8lb blue and 4 more flatheads between 7lbs and 9lbs and the fishing slowed after 2 hours and the wind started screaming and my big boat was to big for GUSY:smile2: So we moved to my second spot and the wind was blowing stronger butt we played it out with the trolling motor keeping the bost straight and my friend billy jr caught a 27lb blue vertical down and 2 cranks up in 55ft of water with cutt shad off the bottom and i caught a 4lb channel in 2hrs and the wind was to much so we went back to our first spot and ended the day with 1 drum and 1 small blue 4lbs and a 9lb flathead and mised around 8 or 9 bites and then headed in at dark i was impressed with the day i caint wait untill next week the water temp. was 58deg. with a almost no current
