    Not a great day today and not a bad day.
    Fished down river from Pickwick dam. and in 3 hours had 20 fish. Biggest was 10 lbs and 5 more above 5 lbs each. Rest good eating size fish. And one boat below use had one that looked to go around 30+ lbs it was a blue.
    Also we had one flathead.
    All fish were caught on worms. As we were fishing for smoking size fish. And each day there's a blue caught at Shiloh that will go 20+ on worms about each morning.
    Was controlled drifting and fish were biting light.

    I got out below Pickwick yesterday with my father. We were in search of bigger fish. Dad caught a 20 and a 14 both blues. The little ones were everywhere that morning probably could have down sized and had a good meal in no time.

    Well I hope the 4th Sunday, But that all depends on how next week goes.:sad2:
    Yes the smaller fish are wearing it out right now. And the bigger fish will only get better the next 6 weeks.
    I was planning on going yesterday. But after some test on my heart Friday. And the Tech telling me if it was him. He would not go, I stayed home. And waiting on the heart doctor to call tomorrow.
    I'm so dumb I failed my stress test. And thought I had read the cheat cheat on it.
    Today was 10 lbs of Smoked Ribs. They were gone in a flash at church for lunch. LOL Would love to have a big catch of catfish and hush puppy's . If i am able toward the end of the month. I will be cooking for between 250 and 300. Fixing up 5 gallons of hush puppy's.
