    I took my wife and daughter fishing last night in the
    truman tailrace and lets just say that there was no
    shortage of idiots on the water, I had three bass boats
    put me in the middle their wakes, two of them on one
    side and one between us and the shore in a space of 15
    feet, lets just say I enjoyed it more than they did.
    Bait was hard to come by for a little while but then
    found the mother load (thanks spoonfish) and then we
    went up to our spot in the middle of the channel and
    put out the anchor in 30 foot of water with plenty of
    current and then we baited up with cut shad on #10
    circles with a #8 circles secondary using 8oz no-roll
    sinkers, We had the lines in for about 2 hours with
    just a couple small runs and then rebaited and then my
    daughter says I think I have a taker so she let the rod
    load up and started on bringing it in and so I grabbed
    the net and my wife grabbed the camera and my daughter
    was laughing so hard she had us just cracking up
    (priceless).
    We finaly got the fish in the boat and weighed it in
    the net at 32lbs and took some pictures and put her
    back in her world to give somebody else a catch of a
    life time.
    with the amount of current coming through the dam and
    32lbs of fish made for a good battle for my daughter
    and that blue cat was the biggest fish she has ever
    caught, her prior biggest fish was a 2LB channel so it
    is safe to say she will be fishing with us again.
    fishing with your family is a great way to share nature
    and memories that will last a lifetime.

    Congratulations all around! Sounds like a great night of fishing. Those bass boats were probably leftovers from the "pro"-am tournament earlier in the day...
