    How many are planning on fishing this coming weekend and where might you be considering for your primary waters?

    I plan on fishing Saturday and Monday. Hope to be on the Black with fresh bait.

    I'm taking the weekend off from fishing. We have a tournament next weekend and will be pre-fishing Tuesday evenig, Wednesday and Thursday. Tournament Friday and Saturday. Bait boat if you start using those skip's you won't want to use anything else. Me and Sam can't even make ourselves use shad anymore. You'll be going all over Gods creation chasing the elusive skip:eek:oooh::smile2:.

    Sunday nite we are headed for ormond to fish below dam and those scour holes. Water flow finally looks perfect for a good night stretching some line on those pigged out river cats! I can't wait another day. Caught 30 skips below dam at Batesville Yesterday. Had a blast catching those bait. Jumped like mad, they always make me feel young again. What will those cat be doing Sunday nite? Fighting hard I hope.:smile2:
