"I don't have a magic spot where I can just sit there and wail on them, but I do have a pattern that's producing better-than-average bites. I'm getting 10 to 12 bites a day and most of them are 3 pounds-plus.

"I can say that I'm fishing primarily with 50-pound braid and when I get a good one, I'm swinging it into the boat. The water's still so flooded up that I think there's a lot of fish I can't access, so I'm actually hoping it'll come down."

He's catching all spots and his biggest today was a 4 1/2-pounder.

"I missed a couple bites that I never got hooked up with and my biggest one, when I swung it in, it came off and bounced off the windshield and landed on the floor of the boat. I had another one close to 4 pounds stay on even though my rod was caught up in some vines.

"I'm hoping I can get at least 18 pounds tomorrow," he continued, "but I'll just have to keep catching one here and one there."
