    creekwalker Moving water...

    After several attempts at OR tribs, I caught one small white bass and a decent wiper stuffed with shad today and a small flathead catfish to boot.

    My one wiper crushed the shad body when it hit the water about 30 yards away, then made a b-line right at me, right by me and started heading out toward the river, taking drag all the way...good to feel that rush again, its been a while. I'll be hitting it again in the morning :D BRING ON THE RAIN.

  3. Hey CW, great report, it is a rush, isn't it! ;)
    I keep skunking last few weeks, but we did catch one in the cast net last night, about 24 inches! 3 feet from bank.
