Went out from the bank last nite, first to river access for flats--zippo. Party boaters were out in force. Then I went to grand rapids below the dam. Fished a few of my holes and ended up with 5 channels, 5 to 8lbs. Had a good run on a bluegill on the bottom so I dropped my float rod and ran over to the bluegill rod. The clicker had stopped, so I checked the bait it was gone. I looked up at the float and saw it go down and realized I left the real engaged. Took off like a madman and just as I got to it the rod shot like 8 feet into the hole. Dove right after it and got it by the end of the butt (waist deep water). Ended up with the 8lber.
