    Got out today for the first time in two weeks, about three hours in 5 different spots and only put four total fish on the bank. Of the four fish, there was three different kinds, 2 drum, 1 walleye, and what made the day a good day an est. 15-20 carp a personal best. I tried every catfish hole that I didnt have to take a major walk to and not even a fiddler cat. The river has been up and down some much I was shocked to catch anything. Anyone else doing any better. This was on the ROCK and Pec rivers.

    I was out on the Fox today near Millbrook sitting between 2 trees. Fished worms from the boat towards the bank and couldn't up. I finally had to drop the second rod. There were 2 times I had both lines ringing at the same time. I was out for 2 hours, had 5 in the box and lost more than I caught. All Cats, all 1-2 lbers. Nice table size.
