Thanks for the welcoming! I'll try not to stir up to much Travis. LOL! Our trip didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. We fished south of New Athens. We put out 4 trotlines. 2 in the channel and 2 floaters in the oxbows. 1 of the floaters I suspect somebody messed with. It had not 1 piece of bait, not 1 fish, and 1 of the hooks was cut off when we checked it in the am. Caught 4 3-4pound channels on the other floater. Only 1 small flathead and 7 blues on the channel lines. The biggest was about 10-12pounds, which was the only 1 we ended up cleaning. The river actually dropped a few inches overnight and I suspect that was the reason we didn't do so well. Fished the same areas acouple weeks ago and did real well. Ohh well thats fishing. Can't catch em on the couch.
