Greg Hackney has moved out of Illinois Bayou and has stopped just off the main Arkansas River channel. He began by throwing a spinnerbait across a large, lily pad-covered flat. Now he has moved up to a stand of reeds, where he put his flippin' stick back in his hands. This may be the spot Hackney ran to yesterday, when we lost him after he left Illinois Bayou. There's a cool breeze blowing out here, which we haven't felt today while in the narrow, protected channel of Illinois Bayou.

As soon as I typed the last blog Ike culled again with a nice fish. He is on fire! -- Hunter Baughman
We just pulled up on Ike in Dardanelle Bay. We are told he has been catching them good. When we got here he caught a nice fish but was unable to cull. He should be in the mid to high teens by now. Looks to be throwing a vibrating jig. -- Hunter Baughman
