    Are they spawning? Have they packed their little suit cases and moved? Do they have GPS and know I am fishing and hide? Lean Gene the Fishing Machine and I went out yesterday, no bites..no nibbles..nada! The current was brisk, river up at 17 ft. We got tired of fighting the current and went to the Salt. Fished at the mouth, nothing there but 4 drunk a$$ holes in a boat too small. They were attempting to fish, 2 fell out of the boat while we were there, luckily they back right back in. I did not want to dive in and save these degenerants. :angry: They were yelling and cussing at everyone pulling into the Salt. Had enough of the drunks, and went back into the Salt..no fish..started to sprinkle then the skies opened up. CAlled it a day and went home. Oh yeah, got back to West Point, heard 4 drunks capsized their boat and were stranded on someones dock! :tounge_out:

    Is anyone else fishing near West Point??? Are you catching anything? Have I lost my groove??? :eek:oooh:

    My feeling is that we have had more than the usual amount of rain and lower temps the past few weeks, I think it might be starting and stopping their spawn. Just a thought.

    I agree with you, the river has been up and down, lots of rain. She is dropping today to 14 ft and going back up monday to 19 ft. Everytime we think she will settle down, has to go back up again! :sad2:

    I agree the river has been playing with us all year.I caught some of the best bait in a year or two there at West Point and never got a bite on it. It now sits in the freezer waiting on the river to :wink: run it's course lol. As the terminator would say "I'll be back".

    I am happy that you were able to get out there on the Big O. Thanks for sharing and I hope those drucks stay off of your dock

    I havent any luck lately myself, Ive been heading out around 6-7ish and hitting the area between farnsley mormon and westpoint with no luck other then the random 10-15 lb cat. Many nights with no bites at all. I usually get out at least twice a week.

    I have always done better in the first few hours of day light myself. I rarely ever fish for cats in the dark.
