    Cool, I have a little hole that should produce pretty good for us. Yep banking it all the way. As far as what to bring that is up to you. I have shad, livers, & shrip. If you have any Danny Kings that would be great.

    I will PM you later with some more details and will give you a call tomorrow afternoon.

    Al that chum will be great. I have a 2 liter bottle we can pour some into and make some small holes in it and throw it out and let it float in the area we are going to fish. Below are some pics of the are we are going to fish. The pic were taken when the water was down. It is still low but not as low.

    Tim yall going to fish the cove? Im not sure I will be able to get out of work but its been a while since ive been sick. :rolleyes: I was thinking about trying it Friday morning. If yall are going to fish it and I make it out there in the morn I will toss out some range cubes. Also we didn't get a single bite on cutbait or live shad, Lucas caught the only fish of the trip on DKs and my dad's bait.

    well me and chris got skunked had couple pretty nice bites he got a real nice run on cured chicken liver set his bait clicker off a couple times i got a pretty good bite on some of my dads stink bait but by the time i made it down to my rod he done let go. seen some guys catching crappie not sure how many but they caught at least four or five while we was there. anywho the cove is baited out pretty good i tossed out half a sack of range cubes and corn. if you walk down the trail to the shore to ur right you will see a dead buffalo and down a ways to ur left theres a big bush laying in the water towards the stickups i baited out that whole area. so yall should do some good. shad where pretty thick over in the smaller cove to the right seen some 2 - 3 inchers didnt throw for them though. oh and the road into the cove we baited is the trail that has the sign saying trail #7 not the first road to the cove. well hope yall do some good tonight if you cant catch any cats should catch some crappie, they was useing minnows in what looked about 2 - 3 feet of water over by the stickups.

    Well How did ya do last night? I went to Lake Arrowhead last night and the only thing I caught was a sore jaw from a 2oz weight coming out of the water after trying to set the hook. I'm going back out tonight to Arrowhead and try my luck again. Wish I could have gone with ya cause I bet ya did all the good! We all need to try and get together again and do some fishing.
    Talk to ya later

    Well out of 4 of us that went, only 1 of us caught a cat and it was just eatin size. We had several good bites but nothing to brag about but we did have some good stories that we all talked about. Just some good chattin and some wishin that we were doin more catchin.
    Tim and Jr. threw out a 50 lb bag of range cubes before we left at 2:00 am and I bet the fishin would have been better in the morning.
    We had a total of 12 lines in the water and we used everything from chicken liver to cut shad and DK pb, and shrimp. When we got there, they were hitting on DK but as the night went on, they started hitting on shrimp.
    All in All, only 1 fish was caught all night.
    But we are not just going to give up, we will be going back again soon and changing that around and bringing in our limit.
    We had a good time and I met a couple of potential new members.
    Thanks for everything, Tim, Jr, Leo.
