    So we went to lock and dam 3 O'Huske last night fished from sun down to sun up caught a couple monsters. Tommy caught one that should be in the record books. Other that we couldnt catch anything moved about 8 times with no success. Seen about 5 dead cats along the bank and floating down the river. Oh yea i put a pic of my catch in there too he came along for the ride. Glad yall killed them at Sutton last night Nick and Randy......

    I figured you all would have done a lot better than that. What all did you all use for bait? I was out Thursday and got only one, and had only 4 bites. I think the moon has something to do with the lack of fish being caught and biting. What do you guys think? Thanks for the report.

    Mako, I believe your right about throwing it right on them. I fished shallow, deep, and on top of log jams the other nite with nothing. The only one I caught came out of 15 ft of water with a flat sandy bottom. Maybe they're tearing the mussles up, and they aren't wanting to eat anything but them for the time being? I don't know what's going on, I haven't experienced this lack of catching or heard of this amout of lack of activity in the three or four years I started fishing the river? Mako, what day's are you off, we need to get together and go out on the river. If Tom Cat, Kingfisher, yourself, and me all can out one night in two boats maybe we can figure something out, trying some different tactics?
