    I don't think it matters where you are right now, until this river system gets some stability to it i think it going to be hit or miss. The front comming through tomorrow may change things for a couple of days but i really think the IL. river needs to get back to normal before anything will be normal around the Alton area. Heck its almost time to start saving the world from bird flu anyaways!

    Tough bite for sure. And Michael, I do think it was a flathead Kutter turned loose on the Merramec a few years back :big_smile:

    AND, drumroll pulleeze, does everyone realize we have had multiple days of temps below 70 degrees and cave communications are still forthcoming?????

    Also, there is a report of Kutter even fishing once with temps around 60 degrees. YUP, read it with my own eyes. :roll_eyes:

    Yacht? on the Meramec? Wow, who would be craz.............Jerry, I know you have been known to go up the Meramec with your boat, remember something about you anchoring out there a time or two. Don't worry Mike, OldJer has a job now an will be reimbursing you the cost of that phone.

    I got a new phone last night.Thankfully,it was under warranty.Only cost me a trip to Creve Couer.I actually got swamped on the Mississippi.After that,I headed back to the Meramec to get away from the big river traffic.At least the water from the waves cleaned the deck and floors of my boat,not to mention the bath I got.Yhe waves came in my side,over my head.My father,on the other hand,barely got a drop on him.And he was sitting in the front.Never saw an 82 year old move so fast in all my life!At least we made it home in one piece.There's always next time.:smile2:

    Man, that scares me just reading about it!!!

    If you had a swell hit you as high as your head, your in the wrong spot to be on the river. Sounds like you were alongside a tug pushing a lot of low in the water barges, upstream. Scary place indeed! They can create the largest swells around.

    Well? Did ya learn anything?:wink:

    I actually parked too close to a wingdam.Yes,I learned to anchor out ,away from the wingdam.The boat rocking from the waves beats the boat sinking from the water.I'll also be ready to pull or cut my anchor,if need be,so I can run.We did have life vests on,at least.I'llnever be quite as stupid again.
