    We went to Pic Wic dam this morning and only one generator on and fished for 4 hours without one skippy. We tried everywhere they should have been but no one was catching any fish. The wind got to gusting at 30 mph so we left. Sure was hopeing to get a cooler full. Maybe next time.

    Happy Fishin'

    When they're only running one generator way out toward the center of the dam, it's very difficult to catch skipjack. You know they're there somewhere, but you just can't find them. A similar problem exists at Dardanelle with #1 turbine, which is the one closest to the shore. If #1 turbine is running, shad will be running the concrete walls, and it's easy to get shad; if #1 is not running, shad will be scattered all across the river, regardless of how many other turbines are running.
