    Hoping to make a run down from Missouri with a few fellers to catch some skips. Where is the best place to make it worthwhile?

    Are they going to shut down as the weather gets cooler?

    Leaving from St. Louis area.

    Thanks.

    I went this past monday and got 28. They are slowing down but still can catch them. I was at KY Dam. I was told going to the steam plant in TN near cumberland city was pretty hot right now. And I'm going Sat back to the Dam to catch somemore.
