First time out since April 7th. Beautiful evening and had just a few hours to fish. That last flood rerouted the GMR and changed our hole again, this time for the good. Young Whiskers and I had out live and frozen gills, shad, and chubs, and it looked like we were going to take a skunkin' until the sun went behind the trees. I lost the first one when a brand new spool of line parted in the middle on a hookset. He took a nice channel on frozen shad that was very fat - weighed a shade over 13 lbs. I had a run, then stop, then slack, and the the fish was coming back towards me a full clip. Managed to pick up line and set the hook in the first 2007 flattie, about 8 lbs, on crushed chub. Several more runs until about 10:30, but no takers. Both fish CPR'd. River was at 2310cfs, and about 7 inches up. Water was pretty clear, which explains the late bite. All in all, an excellent evening.
