    Gary[ son-in-law] and I went out again yesterday afternoon and fish untill dark we caught 6, I tried to fish my hole at the rock quarry but the current was strong and we could not get the boat to anchor. We moved to another spot, the wind had the boat rocking as if it was a cradle, I caught one channel in that spot. We move to a spot off a flat and caught 5 there. One was caught on small whole shad and the rest on Danny Kings original. Yes I know the big one will come from skips, shad or live gills but I am catching fish now, the big ones can Waite for now.

    Hey Tops,
    Thanks for posting the two reports on the Ark river. I agree with you. Catching fish is the name of the game. Dip biat, cut bait, live bait. Really don't matter as long as something is tugging on the end of that line. Congratulations on the success of the two trips.

    Way to go Top. Good you got em when you did. Weather system coming into our area again. Radio says up to 6 inches of rain by Sunday afternoon. Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas. You'll get it before we do up in the hill. Keep your powder dry.
