    Contact Tonto. He is the Big Muddy expert. Big Muddy can help you out as well (hence the name!) :wink:

    TONTO, Jesse, Shane, my "little one", and a few others are on the Muddy this weekend as of noon Saturday they had 7 the biggest one being 50 lbs!
    Boys only, so momma got the entire weekend off! I don't know who had the better time them or me lol!

    and as for bait, live blue gill seems to be working well.
    AND MAJORITY caught on bank poles, so always hope boat or not!

    Arron, Boat or not, you should be looking at some of the spots that are flooded right now, anything with 3 plus feet of water can and will be holding fish right now, they are up feeding the fresh brush on the Kasky right now any way, I don't fish the muddy but I would fish it the same right now anyway.

    Arron, make sure to check out the boc library, fishing locations/river banks and others.
    I read through alot of these posts and they helped me find fish in my boat, and I 'm sure they will help you find fish on the banks. Good luck
