    Hi, i was reading some of your threads about being sucessful on the licking river and such and i was wondering if you knew of a good spot for me to try for shoveleads on the river. I've been looking and just haven't seen a descent looking spot thats not populated. Any help would be much appreciated

    Those are some real nice fish. In fact some of us would consider that a night to remember!

    Congrats on the fish im glad to hear the flats are on the move in the licking river. I tryed the GMR today and didn't have any luck i was using 8-10 inch channels and had a few 6 inch drum. I will be on the prowl for them again this week if the nice weather holds out.
