I’ve been avoiding the river since it’s so high and muddy. Guess I should give it a shot. My brother and I had good luck with the drop shot the last couple times out. Tried the bigger size chatter bait 3/8oz? In chartreuse with no luck.

Was out Labor Day morning and found a very hot bite. Lots of fish with both largemouth and smallmouth landed but not a lot of size to the smallies with nothing over 13". Did get a dandy largemouth. All fish on Gulp minnows.

Hit three spots after the rain had raised levels and lowered clarity a bit. Landed mostly largemouths with a couple good fish mixed in. Got one smallmouth and lost another to a jump. Also hooked into the biggest channel cat I've seen this far north but lost it while it thrashed. It was a real dandy.
