    the river is way to high and muddy to find any bait right now.. did you ever make it to the dam to try to catch an skips before the water came up?

    hey I finaly found some bait here in Mt. Vernon. water came up and we were able to fill a bucket with the biggest shad I have ever seen. So i'm going to try my boat this week end after the carbs have been rebuilt and a new power pack. :embarassed: hope to do a little blue hunting also.
