    Went to the Arkansas river,below the dam at Ozark Sat. Took our 8 year old grandson for the first time. I caught a 10 Lb flattie up by the gates shortly after we got there so Tyler(grandson) wanted to go up by the gates. We use a remote control boat that I built.anyway, We ran a double shad bait up to the gates for him and about 20 minutes later, he got a bite. I set the hook for him, handed him the rod and he faught him all the way to the boat.( 130 Yards). A nice 7 Lb Flathead.It was great. He was wore out but ready to go again so we ran it back up again. An hour or so later he hooked into a 7 Lb blue. He managed to catch two more smaller ones before the day was over.. It was cold and breezy but it was one of the best trips we have had in quite a while.
