    Went out Friday night, in Wabash co. Water level was 2'-4' ;and bottomed out jon boat twice. Fished a 1/4 mile strip of river that night and caught one 14" Channel Cat , a 17" Drum, and a 23" Gar. Maybe waters to low for the big fish to move very far ?

    Hopefully with the little bit of rain we've gotten this weekend, the river will start getting back up to normal levels again.

    Tied some jugs up with bluegills but had no takers. Main reason being that we had to get them in within an hour after puttin them out because of the rain

    Almost forgot. Talked to an old man who has been ruinning trotlines and they caught some nice flatheads and channels on crawdads. Nothing over 12 pounds but good eating
