    WOW Linda Faye and I had quite a day drifting at Cabin Creek at Knoxville yesterday. The drift was perfect the weather was good and the fish were in there. We got seven 4 to 9 pounders and missed a few more. I can't wait for my new rapalla scales so I can weigh them as I bring them in. Shad was the bait of the day. Every one have a great week.

    It is really nice to here good fishing trips are happening. With all the rain here there everywhere in Arkansas I wondered How it would effect the fish

    I fish that cabin creek area a lot. We drift and set up a lot down there.
    Good job on a good day of fishing.
    I am heading down that way next weekend. I hope the river settles down a little too. Should be perfect to camp and fish.

    Linda Faye and I went out yesterday made 1 drift caught 2 fish and the the wind came. We didn't think it was that bad so we went out for another drift and the about half way through it came on strong so we slowly made our way back to the ramp. It can be so nice on the river and 30 minutes later be white capping so we will wait til next weekend and try it again.
