Thompson figuring out what's next

9:54 am EDT, Oct 26, 2013 | By Shaye Baker

The lack of current is killing Thompson's bite, early at least. He's made the same pass now twice with only one keeper. Fishing down main river jetties with an umbrella rig, Thompson says the current is critical to keep the fish pushed up against the bank. Right now he's hearing a few bust the surface but they're at random to say the least and typically out of reach. He's hoping a few folks fire up the electric heat pumps this morning so he can get on a hot streak of his own. If they don't start generating some power soon ... well, let's just say Thompson is trying to figure out what comes next.
