they were biting all day on sat.
we started about 6 and ended about 1
and i got bites from when we got there till we left
and i cant stress enuff about the turtles
if you catch one let it go they eat all the sick and dieing carp
they do a good clean up job so put them back

I know how to get to John Martin. How do you get to the river you are talking about . I assume it is the Ark. Can you camp there?

yea there are a few places i dont think any one will mind you camping

yea its the ark. just follow it out of j-martin
and pick a hole or bend in the river
there are a few headgates with some good fishing on both sides of the river
just be nice to the ditch riders and most will not make you leave some might even tell you what ditches are stoped right now and are full of fish

Hey FishingKats, I dream of catfiah day and night. Can you post some pics of the smileys? Also, how are you rigging the cutbait and what is it? Sucker or carp?

when i get a roll full of pic i will get some pics up

i use cut perch

main line [ 20# ] to a three way swivel
then tie the hook line [ 50# ] to a circle hook i use 50# so i can grab it and pick the fish up by it if i dont have my net handy
then tie on a weight line [12#]
something light so it can break if you hang it up on something
