    Well i went to my favorite stretch of the river yesterday and it was some hard fishing . I ran about 22 miles , fished all the shallow spots i could find with no luck .Even found me some good new spots , nothing there either . The water was low and slow. So i headed back to the ramp with a 1/2 a skip left , i went over a hole that was showing around 50 ' i didnt know was there ,so i figured i may as well use up the rest of my bait , on the first cast i set the pole down and grabed another and the first one took off ,fish on ,(finally) and then it was non stop for about 15-20 min , i went to grap some more bait and -dang i was out , well ended up with five good eater blues and a baby blue that swallowed the hook , And a real good sunburn :smile2: im still learning this area , anyone wants to help me sometime give me a shout, Newt got his pb flathead here , and Ray got on a nice blue here.

    I will be there next weekend for a couple of days. I am gonna set out some limb lines - never done this before.

    Any hints are appreciated, and I'll be sure to report back.
