    I fish it from North Wichita all the way to where it dumps into the Big River. There arent a whole lot of spots with good access and most of it requires some walkin.:wink:

    I grew up along the little Ark in the North end, and I use to know every inch of it North of 21st St. Kyle, It sounds like you stomp some of the same grounds I use to.
    Now I live in Derby, and work in El Dorado, so most of my fishn gets done at ElDo Lake

    We use to seine crawdads out of the big ditch by the hundreds, and sell em to bait shops.
    Any of you guys old enough to remember Sailors bait shop, at the corner of 25th and Arkansas Ave? Thats been a long time ago.

    BTW
    I haven't posted much lately because shortly after I joined I started working 60+ hours a week. Hopefully its slowed down enough I can be a little more active, and get some all important fishn time in.

    Ray, I grew up on 25th st, right across the street from Cloud Elementry. I have been fishin that Lil River for over 15 years now. I know there are bigger fish in the Big River but I still fish it for the sentimental value. My Dad and I used to put a jon boat in at 27th st and fish the heck out of that river. I used to swim in it too when I was little but after seeing the monster snappers in there I stopped.:smile2: I am too young to remember the bait shop but I know exactly where it was. I fish the Big River down by Derby pretty often, maybe we can meet up sometime?

    Heck I grew up at 25th and Summerset. Small world aint it?
    Back in the early 70s my buddies Dad use to pull BIG Flatties out of there on a regular basis. Biggest was over 40. You still fish that area?

    Kyle , when your catching those flatheads down there, do they peck at it, and then move off bending your rod slowly, or do they peck once, and move off fast slamming the rod ? Either way , Im going to have to get down there real soon. :wink:

    When I come down , I want to hit the Ark, the Tunnel Mill, and the outlet at El Dorado, if its letting out water.
