    Thinking about going to the old river bed this afternoon and takin a look around and maybe wet a hook for a while. Haven't been fishin in quite a while. Got some skips out and some deer liver thawing now.

    I know there are some big fish there but have never been able to get them to hit nothing but maybe this time will be different.

    In the spring I'm going to put some trot lines out there. I know I'll catch some good eaters out of there on trotlines.

    Even if I don't get a bite at least I will get out and it is a nice day to be out and in a nice peaceful environment.

    Whisker me has fished the Arkansas a couple times and me feels what you're saying. I saw many a good spot on that huge river that looked like catfish heaven, you will be sore pressed to fish all of them but man those trot lines and stuff will hook a lot even when you aint around!!

    Hope to see some pics of this ifn ya get time!!! Good luck bro!
