    The two best fish from yesterday at Dublin Bay on the Arkansas River. The bass have already deposited eggs. Seems like an early spawn, but water temp was 70 in the bay. I caught these with a hardnose frog tossed to the beds. Was able to see the biggest on come up after the bait. She is my best fish so far this year but I didn't weigh her. I'm guessin over 5 lbs. though.

    Also a keeper size bass that my daughter caught on a shad colored fluke. Together we had a tournament limit of keepers. Caught about 20 fish total before the wind got so bad in the afternoon.

    Just remember, almost every spot over 2'-3' deep that holds bass will also hold catfish. They both relate to structure. Wide ranging blues in the summer often are relating to a channel edge or something like that, even when they're swimming near the surface.
