Dave (Skip Jack)got hold of me around lunch time and asked if I wanted to hit the water, Sure I said if you think the waters OK. Met him around 3:30pm and we headed out got to the ramp at Westport and put in. Set out for bait, first pace didn't produce, so we had to run down river to another spot and I finally hooked up with a net full of small 4-5" shad, with a couple little Skippie's mixed in. Then Dave took over and with a couple casts of the net Dave pulled out the mother load of 7-8" shad.:cool2: Then we was off for the cats.Soon we was setting in 34' and marking fish on the screen and then set anchor. man I thought the 9-10 Gama's were a big hook , Dave pulled out some kales that would have brought JAWS to the boatoooh:. One big HOOK Bros.:big_smile: Dave showed me how to get rigged up for the river and it was on, cut the shad into 3rds baited up and waited, It wasn't long before his pole took a small bounce and then down she went, soon after a small flathead was in the boat.#1. for Dave. A little while later another down and #2 was in the boat for Dave.:crazy: I was saying come on Big Boy take her down:smile2:I wanted a fish, man them dudes didn't like the looks of my bait, did have a couple smacks , but no takers. The bite slowed to nothing for awhile and we decided to up river. We marked a HERD of fish with some good ones mixed in, so we got set up in some 27-30' I think, and slung -em out..Wouldn't you know it, That same old rod that went down the first time went, Dave pick it up and the fish pulled a little as I was watching and he set the hook and the rod just doubled, You knew it was a good one by the looks of the rod. It took a Little and Dave had #3 in the boat a nice Blue around 20ish pretty fish. :roll_eyes::confused2: Man he was beating up on me Bad, I had a hit on a whole 7" shad and at first it felt real good then it just went weightless.:sad2: Just about my luck:smile2:. I was still saying , come on Big Boy:wink: I just patiently waited for big bite, nothing, time was winding down and guess what oooh: That same Ole rod went down again, Bros I was cracking up, I couldn't believe it Laughing as I stood to help and another rod went down and I grabbed it and I thought we was going to have a double and Dave's Fish spit it out, But I finally got a pretty nice blue in the boat. Bros I had a smile on my face as big as this :big_smile::smile2: Thanks to Dave, I had a great trip on the water, the first in about 15yrs. I had a great time fishing with Dave and hope to have many more. I have 5 pic's, so 2 more will come right after this post.
