Made a trip to Arkabutla Friday and proved to be a good one. We caught 20 keepers. Biggest fish weighed in at 2.5 lbs. We had 13 out of 20 that weighed 2.0 lbs. or better. We caught fish until we ran out of minnows. Big thanks to John Woods and Tracy McIntosh for bringing us some more minnows to keep us fishing!! We caught fish on the bottom in 14 to 15 ft. water. The water was very clear. You could see down about 2 ft. I wanted to note that when we ran out of minnows we tied on jigs to our Capps and Coleman minnow rigs and the fish stopped biting. As soon as we got minnows we caught fish immediately in the same spot. We tried speeding up and still did not catch anything. If you go to Arkabutla try minnows! Until next time.

I agree John since you and Tracy did save the day. You would think that they may cook them also.
