Coach, I hope you see this. I just talked to one of my good fishing friends that happens to work where I do. First thing he said to me was "I didn't see you on the river yesterday". I asked him if he went. He said he did and the fishing was pretty good. He caught 5 fish for a total weight of 25#. All falthead. Biggest was just over 12#. All on cut bait. He said one 2lb fish he caught was spewing eggs when he was unhooking her. He didn't catch a blue or channel. We concluded they were on the bed and the flathead are either close or in the process of spawing or could be some have spawned, some spawing, and some almost ready. I'll try them Saturday. Anyway, it was an incouraging report.
