Me and Big Sam were off work so we decided to go fishing. It was a terrible day weather wise and the wind was blowing really strong out of the east with the temp's hovering in the low 30's all day. It sleeted and rained off and on til we decided we had had enough and quit about 1:00 p.m. The water temp's have dropped back to 40 degrees. We met at the ramp at daylight and decided it was just to rough to get out on the lake so we drug the 24 ft. slime mobile up river and done some river fishing on the Arkansas river. We just manage 4 fish total because we were just having to duck out of the wind to even fish in the river. We had to run pretty slow even in the river the front of the pontoon was trying to dip into the waves and freezing onto the front deck. We kept two eaters and released 2 over 10 lbs. One was 32.74 lbs. and one was 14 lbs. This was the first fish of the day and my PB for 2008, 32.74 lbs. Then letting it go Then Big Sam caught this little guy that I later ate for supper This is Big Sam hamming it up for the camera LOL reeling in a 14 lber Then releasing it This is where the 2 we kept ended up. It's a new recipee we tried last night and it was pretty good eating.
