    I took two guys who hadn't fished the White river much out last Friday (week from yesterday) and the river was on a fast rise, going from one to three feet. My finder said the water was 65 degrees. Man, I thought we would slay em! I always thought a rising river was golden. We had fresh shad and suckers for bait. We fished about seven or eight spots and finally caught four fish -- three channels and a flat. All about five pounds. Not bad, but I thought we'd do better. The river went up yesterday, too, about the same way. Anyone fish it?

    Isn't that the way it goes?! "Perfect" conditions, you take some newbies to get them hooked, and then you catch dinks or get skunked! If you would have been by yourself you would have slayed them.

    At least you got a few...at least you got out!
