Got on water about 9:00 am out of Riverside in Fayetteville and went up river. My buddy bass fished a while and I caught some brim for bait. We caught several catfish less than 6 inches long (on worms). My buddy hooked one (nice) that got off on cut bait. I hooked gar (did get to see him) and THEN I hooked into a big fish (live bait) he went around A log and broke line after minute or so. It was a very large fish sure would have liked to have landed him. heat drove us off water about 1:00 pm my friend recovering for cancer treatment so we came in so he could rest.
