    where r all the bait fish?

    went to alton saturday came back with 6 shad and a hole in my net


    went to the chain of rocks yesturday got three more shad, but I made the best of it. later on sunday nite me and my brother went down to the riverfront under the arch. alot of people over look this spot but its a nice one. anyway with my three shad and a tub of chicken liver we caught two blues and one channel biggest one being 9lbs. I guess its ok for the little bait we had.

    I was up there in Alton on Friday night and Saturday during the day and didn't have any problems finding bait. Even caught some skips! The skips was what the fish were eating before anything else.
