Took my son and my dad with me out of DG around 7:30am, stopped at Castaway and got a few eels. I went upriver to a couple of spots...my son got couple of 1 and 2 pounders. You dont have to pay much attention in science class to realize the sun is a large ball of fire in the sky. My god was it hot!:crazy: I was able to get some bait in my cast net up near falling creek. My cast net skills are improving. I had quite the variety today: smallmouth, largemouth, bluegill, shad (1 cutter), and a jumbo carp probably 6 pounds. MY son thought he was pretty cool. We set out 7 rods with fresh bait each time, shad, eel, bluegill and still was very slow. ended the day with 5 fish, one being a 1lb flathead (on bream) and best of day 6lb blue. I still can not seem to be able to get on the better size fish. I know it takes time to learn but man it's frustrating with these dinks. One of these days Mr. Monster has to come to visit. PS thanks to all the input on the "clickers" You guys and girls are great!
