Well Johnny was in fine form got him out of the house Sunday to drag some baits in the Arkansas river not far for a dam...We started at 530am and Johnny struck 1st
then he struck 2nd as usual I couldn't let him get 3 in a row so I came to life
We had a great day pushing our 2 man limit of 20...we only get 10 a man here....then it happened Johnny busted a small blue about 1lb he bounced off the deck and straight into my leg by my ankle I had to pull it out whew that was a killer bang we were dragging the I-pilot in 35 to 45ft deep.. the fishing is good our way in the heat if ya can stand it we left at noon crazy looking for a 1st aid kit!!!

Been there, done that. Almost the same spot. lol_2 I keep a bottle of rubbing alcohol on the boat now. Like the way you got your rod holders rigged up on the console. Might have to change mine out like that. Nice cats there!

Looks like a great day, except for the way it ended. Dragging can be really fun this time of year. Just be sure to drink plenty water and try to stay cool. Iv learned shade on the boat REALLY helps.

A good day on the river is hard to beat even with a battle scar.

Almost all the river guys rig their boat that way.

Thanks Zee! cheers I got tired of rods bouncing all over creation and getting tangled up & stepped on etc...so I worked on a way to keep them organized... It works really well and is easy to make...Now carrying rubbing alcohol is different issue all together whip That catfish in the leg was devastating had to go to doctor get antibiotics..

Well I decided to go back out Sunday I was a little gun-shy after 2 weeks of antibiotics. But we managed to catch a few. We drugged baits around till about 12:30 p.m. Billy busted a couple of 7&8 pounders. I had to top it off with a 10. Actually we had a nice day and there was no injuries to report.
