    We caught 1 about 8lbs on bluegill and a channel about 3lbs. There was plenty of Gar running though. Also the channel was caught on bluegill.

    Yeah they are cleared up.Still very slow bite but I would bet money that they are biting in the early daylight hours.If I can get my lazy butt out of bed Fr I am going to hit the river before work.

    we went to hinton on sunday and waded there at the spill way and i caught a smaller channel and so did misty and another guy on nightcrawlers. this one guy was using softshell and caught about 6-8pound flattie.. went from about 730-330am sat night and only 2 small ones were caught, misty caught her second flattie that night:wink: there was a total of 25 lines out that night and NADA.... SO hopefully this recent rain will help
