    I've hung yo yo's 4 times in the past 2 weeks and have caught 65, 72, 40, & 116. I fish in an old oxbow in the city limits of Little Rock. It's clear & shallow & the windier & colder the better. Big Slabs. Most of them blacks.

    Nice catch there Jerry unfortunately in Texas we're not allowed to use yo-yo's for fishing.

    Hobo, my brother moved to Texas 7 or 8 yrs ago and took all his gear with him, and found that out and shipped about a hundred or so yo's back to me. His loss, my gain!!

    A yo-yo is a spring loaded limb line. A mechnical/auto spring loated fisher.

    David, I talked to a couple of people who tore them up on Bistenau with yo-yo's. I am going to be out there Friday night and put out a bunch, providing it isn't raining (too hard).

    Yo-yos and beer. A helluva combination.
