    Paul,
    Thanks for the post and pics. Looks like you had a productive day! Travis (riverrat85), Brian (bwhupp) and I have been hitting Baldwin trying to catch a big blue or flathead. No luck yet!

    ive been putting a lot of extra effort into it. walking about a half mile total at the dam every time i go carrying a 5 gallon bucket full of water, an air pump and shad back to the car is enough to where i think i deserve it by now. :wink: travis did it and boy did he get a nice one! they are in there, they always have been.
