    went fishing below Jetta Taylor(L&D 12) on the Arkansas river Sat. morning. Netted some small shad and anchored down below the gates. It was finally calm enough to use the Remote bait boat. Caught 5 nice eaters(3 to 8 Lbs) Right at noon My wife thaught she was hung-up and
    started pulling to get free when the hang-up starts moving. The fight was on. twenty minutes later I netted her new PB. A 42 Lb flatty. If you look in the background of her picture you can see the little 3 inch shad still on the hook, that he bit on. MAN- I guess I'll have to listen to her bragging until I can top this one. It's not going to be easy.

    Nice flatty!

    I haven't been able to do much fishing lately as I have been fighting an inner ear infection. I've been quite dizzy. I'm going back to the doctor tomorrow.

    Thats a really nice fish. So much for the notion that flats only feed at night!
