    Getting ready to head out seems like my buddy is a no call !:sad2: I will be bank fishing under the I-75 bridge between LEX and Richmond . A jug fishing trip changed to just a rod and reel adventure . Anyone wanna come walk down the boat ramp @ Clays Ferry bridge and look down stream . Caught a bunch of 4 to 5 in. suckers and crawdads today. plus night crawlers , stink bait ,shad guts , liver ! bring poles and come on !

    Fishing report is : Water warm zero current . Fished 8 to 11 . Danny no bites, (cut sucker ) Ken no bites stink bait , Lance no bites (chicken liver ). John 1 bite on night crawler . No one used the crawdads. :big_smile: After all the effort my boy spent on catching them . Shame on all of us now I gotta gofreeze them for the next trip ! :cool2::wink::roll_eyes::tounge_out::big_smile:

    Crawdads crawl under rocks and hang ya up, unless it's a sandy bottom.:wink: Sometimes they are good bait. Like everything else the right time right place they catch fish:wink:
