    Well went down to the Barling dam yesterday to try and get lucky on some skips:tounge_out: but there was none. However while i was there they sounded the sirens and opened the flood gates as wide as they will go:crazy: That is a rare occurance that only happens every 10-20 years any more water comes and there will be some flooding occur. On the bright side i ran into baitboat he was snagging away with a few more locals. They were kicking those spoonbills tails. I saw one go over 30 easily and several from 10-20lbs ...Everyone was hoping it would not rise anymore.

    Brian, Could you still go through the tunnel to get to the dam side of the generators?

    What a day no skips or spoons .I think opening them gates wide open
    flushed everything down to ozark. I will take today off and rest until
    they start generatoring again .
