    Not much going on this year. Last trip I made was last week in July ( I think it was July 28) with three buddies. We were fishing from the bank with heavy equipment and I only caught one fish all day long. It was a 15# Flathead. My buddies caught a few small channels and blues. Total for the day was 11 fish.
    It was a cloudy day until about 3:30 pm and when the direct sun broke through the temp. went straight up. Man it got hot. :D

    Nice fish pictures Tops. When were they caught? Off the bank or in a boat ? How is the water level there below Dardanelle Dam ?
