    hi e1, a few weeks ago a new member made a post asking about fishing the mississippi river down by new madrid, i pm him told him that i would take him out soon as i got my boat back. well today i called him joey (djh1) told him that i was going out for a while & if he wanted to come along id show him what i do see if that help him out. we when up creek to get some shad, showed him how to throw the net, i think hes about got it now, just needs to work on it a little more, but he did get it up a few times. then we went down river. show him a few spots i fish, we got set up & a few min. went by when he got a bite, it was a 8 pounder, about 15 min later i got a 14 pounder, we moved around looking at a few spots, set up, he got a bite & a battle, this turned out to be his pb. 34 1/2 pounder. should have seen that smile:big_smile::big_smile: nomore than got the pics. & that line back in, he got a 16 pounder. joey it was great haveing you along, your off & running now good job. here are a few pics. of joey and his fish.

    Way to go Russ. It is hard to learn how to fish the MS River and always good to have someone who has the knowledge help out someone just starting out. Reps to ya for that.
