Man you did better than me. Boated only 4 with one nice keeper. And a snagged spoonbill on a jigging blade. Tons of gulls diving on all the dead shad. Im gonna use that as my excuse this week. Lol.
I can show a sauger my jig, but i cant make him eat it. Even IM not that good. Lol

Thatís true.Saw lake Cumberland was 6í high before all this rain. Going take long time getting all the water levels down. They have been pulling 90-95k today on old hickory. I have never seen those numbers. Normally 20-40k
