    Dont ever read much on limb linin. We fish a small river down here in the bootheel called St. Francis. We tie around 15 to 20 lines out and pole fish alnight. My little girl loves it and thanks shes a big dog handin me bait when we are runnin them and playin in the stink bait. This is just how we spend our weekend summer nights.

    I've done a little limblining on the lower St. Francis, just a few miles from where it enters the Mississippi. Couldn't keep the gar off the lines long enough to catch any catfish. I mostly fish the Arkansas River where there are few overhanging limbs to use; so, I jugfish.
