    Well gang My top secret bank spot pays off again........:wink:
    I fish a tourney Sat with my brother shawn. We caught some nice fish but not enough to get us in the big money, but I got the smallest fish and won $50 bucks heres a pics. The bait was bigger then the fish........lol

    But it didn't stop there. My small motor ran fine (thank god).:roll_eyes::wink::eek:oooh:
    But we decided to take it out again today. We went to St. Charles and the current was ripping through there so we went to Alton. Got there and the wind was crazy the white caps ran us off. Wanting to fish we ran down to Columbia Bottoms and drop the boat in. Again the current was soo strong we just went straight across the river. We couldn't go up stream at all. we took the boat out and home we went. Sitting there we still wanted to fish so we grabbed the bank poles and headed to our go to spot. We got there and got one right off the bat. again the wind was crazy. Shawn got one and it wired his mouth shut. So I'm helping him and Tre yells dad your pole. I look down at the pole and it was bent over but the bell wasn't ringing. I ran over pick it up and notice the line was going down river. I go to set the hook and it stopped in its tracks. I thought I was hung it didn't move. I held it there for a while and then he started moving again. I yelled at Shawn to get the net and ask Tre to move his pole. After about a 15Min fight we saw what was on the other end. I stop reeling and we all just looked at each other like wow.... Shawn tried to net this thing and we thought theres no way its gonna fit in this net. We finally got this Pig on the bank and the cheers started.........LOL


    I hope you guys can see the pics. Oh, this is my NEW PB BLUE of 45.8lbs

    The other pic is the small one that won us 50 bucks 1.8 i think

    Willie just wondering if that small fish was your PB DINKER!!!:crazy: If it is then you had back to back PB days.Fishing up at the dam can be real good at times.I used to fish it at night up there all the time and I would catch the h$ll out of them.
