    two weeks out fishing everyday and only totaled 5 or 6 fish across arkansas, zero for me in Mississippi. I went fishing Sat. today yesterday whatever :smile2: The bite was good! biggest was an 8lb blue but they were biting. I even lost a complete rod and reel!!!!! Fish jerked it outa my hand, I was getting taps on 2 poles at once and didn"t have a good grip on it and swoosh it was gone into the river:embarassed: Try splainin that one:smile2:Lucky for me it was not an expensive rig. I had read the fishing reports for arkansas and oklahoma and some were saying blues were hitting in the 3-10' range so thats what I did today, and thats where they were, nothing in the 20-30' range. This was on the Arkansas River, but the reports were from Lakes. So maybe try that Pastor E...... If your lake has Shad, Use shad in the shallows ...Good luck Mac
