    We have been camped here since Sunday evening. Lake has dropped about 18" since we have got here. Fished Sunday evening got 5 keepers. Blues and channels about 2-4 lbs. Fished today and got 10 keepers. Caught a lot of dinks. Had to get every thing put up, we have sever thunderstorms come through. Last time we were here a storm came through and caused a lot of damage to out travel trailer.
    All of the catfish I have caught look like they haven't eaten in a month. With all the shad you would think they would be pot bellied.

    Well the rain has slacked off and I got my boat back straight. First time I have seen waves that big on Ft Gibson. They were breaking over the back of my pontoon. I hope the lake doesn't come up very much. I would like to stay all week.

    Lake still rising. Didn't get to fish today hope to start early in the morning. If the lake comes up much more we will have to pull out,water will get over the road.

    Lake has stablized, shad every where, wind out of the west about 5 mph. Caught 5 eaters this morning. Brings the total to 20 since Sunday evening. Blues and channels 2-8 Lbs. I would catch more if I fished harder but I'm enjoying sitting out side with the wife. She is feeling some better.

    Had 5 this morning 3-6 Lbs. First time I have caught more and bigger channels than Blues. All of the bigger fish have been channels, which is good because I want them to eat. It has been slow this afternoon, maybe it will pick up later.
