    Radish I hope to get one over 50# some day. Man I love to fish for them.
    But guess I will just have to put up with catching a lot of numbers of them at Pickwick on Live bait. They will run around 8 lbs or so. But man you can catch one each drift. Bam and I had one day back in the spring, that we had one each every drift. Guessing we had 40 fish that morning. And if we could have gotten bait. We could have doubled that number.
    But that is a nice for for sure.

    Pete I sure love to catch them to. When my girls were young we went to Hot Springs every year and they had a ball. At that time there were places that sold live shad but they are hard to find now. I have film of my daughter catching one that went 48#. After she landed the fish she could not pick her arms up. We have a few in the MS river and you can catch one every once and a while . John
