    A couple of buddies and I put the boat in a paines landing saturday night @ around 530pm, we drove around and got an asian carp and started fish @ around 7 pm! We had asain carp, goldeye, shad, and we even cut up some drum to give a try! We fished the flats between dykes, the flats above the channel crossings, and shallow sand flats! We finally gave up @ 4 am, we didn't have a bite all night long! Does anyone have any tips to hand out? We tryed everything we were told to try and caught nothing...it gets frustating fishing that long, with all the right baits, and in the general area, and not even a bite! I thought maybe the river conditions might have something to do with it, but I heard some people did some good saturday night! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks to all and Good Luck!

    Everyone tells me that the cats stop biting when the river is dropping.
