started off a lil late and we got stuck in the middle of a hughe rock bar almost to where we wanted to start off and couldnt go any farther up stream so we we back down . started fishing and got some hits but no takers got to 2nd spot and finally jay got one in the boat about a 5lb sturgen. we released it and went to spot 3 about 5 mins there and went to light the new gas grill and oooops forgot the lighter. so no food this trip then jay gets a hugh hit and sets the hook and starts reelin in wham about a 10lb soft shell turtle then we said shucks with it and headed home

brian, how skinny is the water there at the paragon ramp, that is one ramp that i have not launched from yet, i go over it every time i go to monroe and wonder how shallow that stretch is, i have an 18' modified v bow, prop driven, no jet. 16'' of water and i'm good, any shallower than that??
thanks for any input.
andy.

Negative on the tourney. It's not an "open" tourney therefore ya gotta join the ICA (not gonna happen) and pay full price entry fees. Plus they postponed the tourney due to river conditions on the Wabash. I think I'll go tear some flatheads up on T/C.

henderon ford!!! lmao... i learned my lesson the hard way about ten years ago with henderson, made it downstream to the island.
got to the island, decided to beach it so i could walk and see which side to take, while beaching it the current drug me down into the riffles, about 10 to 12'' deep, had me concerned about getting back up, talk about a roostertail of gravel.
give me a shout sometime when your hitting paragon, i'l see about coming down to join ya.
andy
