    Your using the right stuff, might need to try and find some different structure. Once water is down try fishing off the wing dikes, fish off the tip of it, at the swirl on the back side, and try the front side also. This high water makes it tough out there right now. :sad2:

    i dont have enough post yet to reply to your pm but yea i bagged up a few pounds of shad i got while at truman dam but i went through that in no time so now im just buying frozen shad most of the time or using live goldfish. i basicaly gave up on night crawlers. all i get with those is sturgeon and carp. me and my bro put in over 12 hours on the mo yesterday moving to 3 different spots within a 2 mile stretch and ended up with 2 sturgeon. dissapointing lol...... im too dedicated to quit though haha. my buddy wants to try out the melvin price dam soon. have u ever fished there? i usually just get on google earth and find a bend or a dike that looks good the use my gps to get there.

    No I haven't fished up that way, I think Motopro00 fished up there earlier this week, he might be able to post a reply soon.
