We've just finished our 25 mile run from up the river. Christie got the jump on us and we weren't able to catch up. He likely slipped into a cove of creek. No time to find him. But we'll look for some of the others on the lower end.
Cliff Prince described his lure choices this week as "throwing everything but the kitchen sink at them." His go-to bait, especially for his bigger fish, has been a tube fished on a Booyah football jig-head. But he's also Carolina-rigged a Yum Mighty Craw and used a shaky head worm "that Terry (Scroggins) made in his garage." The soft plastics were all in green-pumpkin or watermelon colors.
Does he have enough to stage a stunning comeback?
One of the friendliest people in Bull Shoals, Ark., was born in Mumbai, India. His name is Tejas Parekh, better known at T.J.
Jason Christie is back where he's caught his weight. I'm sure he's hoping the school is ready to snack again. He's found a deep hole where this bigger fish are sitting, probably waiting for their turn to hit the bank. Meanwhile, they are gorging on shad. He won't have much time. He has to allow at least 30 minutes to get back, which means not much more than that of fishing time.
After a few minutes of flipping and looking for bedding fish, we are back in the area we believe Jason Christie started this morning. We are not where the breaking fish were, but in the creek below. As wonder would have it, there are fish breaking here. He's still looking for that 4-pound bite to seal the deal.
