Yesterday evening I hooked up the boat and headed for the river, anticipating fishing until around 11 pm then heading back home. I set out the rods and had action within minutes. At around 10:30 I had a couple of barges go by, and I noticed that as usual, they were sucking the water right out from under my boat. No big deal, it will come back up, it always does. Boy was I wrong. I think that someone pulled the plug because the water level dropped even further than usual and left me stranded on a sand bar, and there was no way that I could even budge my boat! I was stuck. I stayed there all night long, hoping the water would come back up. It never did. At 5:30 AM I called one of my friends, and he came to the rescue. It was all we could do to shove my boat into deeper water. It took several attempts, but we got it! I ended up with 4 flatheads, (biggest was 35", 19 lbs.), 2 Hybrid bass, 2 sauger, and one smallmouth. The flatheads were caught on live bluegills, and the other fish I caught on a Rooster tail right at the break of day while waiting for my help. It was a long cool night, but I'm thankful that I caught those fish! Here's a pic of the 19 lb cat.
