    Went out for a few hours tonight... NO ACTION for anyone.....

    Shad sides, night crawlers and some Gulp bait was even tried...

    Water lever HIGH, fast and MUDDY. A lot of big logs still coming down river, hooked in to one, even managed to land it!

    I did get a baby flathead, roughly an ounce LOL CPR'd that puppy:eek:oooh:

    I can't complain though, I got out with my dad, he doesn't get out much! Overall.... I am happy!

    Oh, I didn't know you were fishing that spot! I thought you went out to a lake to try the old motor out. Well...the water was probably way too high for fishing huh? It's pretty high everywhere. I was drunk last night, if you hadn't figured that out on your own. You're not a bad fisherman for catching a 5oz'er
