Took the new boat out to the Wakarusa a couple weekends ago. Never been out there, thought we'd give it a shot. Get the boat in the water after catching some 'gills in a local pond, and throw the cast net right off the ramp, and BAM 30 shad, 2-3 inch. A couple more throws and we're good for cut bait for channels too. The river hardly had any current, so we used the trolling motor and went way upstream. Seemed like every branch sticking out of the water had an empty limbline tied to it. Had a couple of drunk dudes pass us in a canoe that had been out there all day. Left the fish finder screen at home, so we had to guess at where the holes were, and fish snags, etc. First time using some Katbobbers that I made, and got a nice 8-lb flathead. Only fish of the night. Would of had a picture, but the batteries died in the camera. Are we doing something wrong? It got pretty chilly out that night, but the water was still warm. We had 5 poles in the water the whole time, and 1 fish? Anybody else fish this river? Are there any big flatheads in it? Do we need to go downstream instead of up? Any help would be awesome!
