    Crappie bites good and some fun times with 6 lb. test when you hang in to something big with all this current!

    We're fishing right below a eddy where the currents a little slower.

    At work as usual
    With my luck they'll shut the water off when I get down there this weekend. What are they biting on?

    Most of ours was caught on 1/8 ounce green twister tails.

    Truman is still 18.5' high. I'm sure you will still have plenty of water to fish this weekend.

    With all the lead that is wedged between all the rocks there I'm surprised that the environment people haven't put a stop to using lead jigs. Probably say we are putting to much lead in the water and the fish absorb it into their bodies and we eat the meat and it gives us lead poisoning.:cool:

    Do you remember when guys had those remote controlled boats that could take your bait to the face of the dam and drop it? By the time the boat got back to the fisherman you were already fighting a fish. Once word got out they put a stop to using them. Spoils Sports!:mad2:

    Hey....try walking down those rocks wearing bifocals and carrying your fishing gear....and being not quite as agile as you were a few years ago. Took a few spills myself and luckily didn't break anything valuable other than pride.:eek:
