    Fished from 7 p.m. until 5:15 a.m. at the Payneway, Ark bypass dam.

    Used garlic liver, shrimp, live bluegill, cut dead bluegill

    I caught a 4 ft limb and that was about it for the whole night.

    Jimmy Johnson(Spaceman) showed up about 9 p.m. and brought some blugill for bait. He fished until around 4 a.m. Jimmy caught a flathead, maybe 3#, around 9:30 but it eventually escaped the stringer. He then later caught a longnose gar.

    There are a lot rocks and I lost a lot of lead due to hang-ups. The mosquitoes were very bad most of the night. I used Cutter's new Advanced Outdoorsman repellent. It only worked when it was wet. I will not use it again.

    A snake crawled onto the bait basket but my little pistol dealt with that.

    All in all, I should have stayed home and slept.
