I guess things are really hush hush this weekend with the tournament and all. I went out yesterday for a few hours and had a pretty good day. I went to catch some fresh bait and got blocked in by a barge so I stayed a little longer than planned. The skipjack were on fire so I caught some to give to some friends. Once I was able to get out of the chute, I hit the Arkansas bank and went south. I fished a small cut with heavy current and picked up a flathead about 10 pounds on a bloody head. A few minutes later I had a good pulldown and was able to fight the fish for about 10 seconds before the hook pulled loose. It felt to be a good fish... I moved up the bank and hit a rock dike with a good hole below it. It produced a 12 pound blue and a couple of other hits. Almost all hits came either on heads or gut pockets. Those were the only fish I caught but it was encouraging with the way the bite has been lately. I talked to a guy that I see frequently on the river and he said he caught a 62 this week on R&R. I didn't have the nerve to ask him if it was a bullshark....:lol: Maybe the bite is starting to pick up. Welcome to all of the new guys posting. I usually fish alone so if anyone is interested in fishing the Greenville area some time, give me a shout. I make no promises about catching fish but we'll sure give 'em a whirl.
