    Ray and I went back up to WDM for bait fishing mostly and to get away from it all! LOL We had a super time and the critters kept me entertained through-out the whole trip. I named a couple and doo-dad and Be-boop are the two birds. They came as far as my arm to me and we had a jolly time. We caught a record breaking 135 skips in 4 hours and several bass, along with eater cats and fun with drum! The river went way down and the sand bar was showing...but then again the time away from it all was a great de-stresser for myself. Even did the arkie thing when my silver side minnow started to tear.......taped it up with what ya might ask?
    (Hot Pink Duck tape... )I was thinking all the while, Oh, my, I an't gonna catch nothing.....BAM! Got me a huge skipjack and told Ray had to have a picture of this expecially for Coach, Tman, and Gonefishing ....
    Sweiss from PA came down for the day of fishing. The river had dropped so not much biting til of course the skedders did but fun was had ball all. Here is a couple pictures
    Pink duck tape saves the day

    Johnny- that is the first one on the Arkansas river down at Dumas/Pendellton Arkansas. Just up from where the river joins the Mississippi and White river.

    Yes puppypal and I had a great time, the skips were biting really good was catching them two and some time three @ a time was a blast watching Glenda hauling in some of those big skips 2 and 3 @ a time.
    As always she was catching a little of everything strippers,brim ,c-cat,drum,gar,large mouth bass,and skip. I need to stop fishing for those sharks and fish like she does and i will at least be catching something.
    She did'nt out do me on skips I was smart i had the only sabikii rig and did'nt loose it til about a hour before we left, and she was fishing jigs:smile2:
    But she is on to my secret she has mail ordered 24 new sabikii rigs :eek:oooh:

    Its was great meeting a new BOC member SWeiss (Steve) from the big penn. state even if the cats where not bitting as well as we would have liked them to. But we shared a lot of stories and fish talk wh'll glenda was busy catching fish.LOL:smile2:
