    Well i launched the boat at 645am on Monday the 18th. Holiday trip for me:big_smile: The Ar. river was up almost covering the dock at Cane creek ramp:eek:oooh: The river was flowing pretty fast with quite a bit of debris coming down. I went way down-river and around the corner and tucked in behind some big islands and targeted a Big Flat. I had a "few" skips and some shad. I baited up 2 poles with skips and was cutting up my shad and took a quick glance at my 2 i just threw out:wink: and they were both bent down:eek:oooh: well this kind of action went on for quite a while. I had my limit within 45 minutes. Sorry no pictures..Johnny set this one out:tounge_out::smile2: I ended up with 19 total and by the time i let the 10lbers plus go i had 9-10 keepers. Water temp was 44 and i fished in 7ft of water.
