    Fished Smithvlle N. of W bridge up to Platte River Arm today. Me and the gal were using fresh cut shad sides and chicken livers. Caught a small channel at right about 9 am but not another fish all day. Im gonna try to trap some bullheads for bait to catch a flathead or two. Does anyone have any recommendations? I've had some pretty good luck at James A Reed (Cottontail pond) for small channels but I live N of the river and Lees Summit is quite a drive. Im up for any 'hot spots' around the Northland to St. Joe area-- bank or boat, rod and reel. Thanks for your help Gents!
