    it all started with a call to Biga gave him a call seeing if he wonted to hit the river for a night of fishing got to the around 7:300 started looking for some fresh bait boated about 6 or 8 nice mooneyes headed up river to the first spot after 2 min. on the first drift we boated the first fish an about 3 min. after putting the fish back in the water here comes the rain we heded back to the dock to wait out the rain about an hour of setting around tit all cleared up by that time a few friends pulled to fish with us headed back out to the same hole put on a new drift there with know fish we loaded up an went down to a new hole an tryed an new hole that a friend had told us about could not find it so we pulled back out an went to the deepest hole that i know of around were we were an there were the fish we fished from about 10 till 3:00 an we boated 26 fish last night to this day was the best night on the water that iv every had there were no big fish but alot of them the bigest fish went 21lb but with catching fish like that its a blast

    it was a great night for sure!!! well over 250#s of fish in 5 hours!!!!! i would still be there if bill had not made me leave :smile2::smile2:. im just glad we decided to wait out the rain and keep fishing because if we had listened to the weather man we would have have called it a night and never caught those fish..

    Thats a hell of a night. Makes up for all the times we get skunked. I was going over the henderson bridge friday evening and seen a few guys drift fishing. Really made me want to get out there.

    Sounds like fun. I went out on the ohio tonight, 15th, and caught 5 small ones in Evansville in about 4 1/2 hours. Fishing for flats but with no luck.
