    Has anybody fished this area recently? I have been fishing there for a week and five out of seven days I was skunked! I used every bait that I know, worms, chicken livers, spam, beef hearts, lil smokies, ivory soap, hot dogs, etc... Only pulled in two 4 pounders. What can I do

    That part of the river is really shallow at that point you need to find the deep holes or the drop offs. That is where the fish will be sitting through the day and come into the shallows at night to feed, mostly the flatheads will be shallow at night.

    Change bait.
    Use whole live eel, cut eel, whole live bream, cut bream, whole shad dead or alive or cut shad.

    That other stuff just aint a producer of what you are probally looking for.
