    Went friday nite this past weekend. It was very slow until after dark. The bait was even hard to find until after dark. We ended up with five cats 4 blues bi one was 14 and one channel went 3.

    Most of the normal spot that produce never. Ended up at the confluence.
    Lots of barge traffic friday nite. I think that the big ones may still be on the nest not quite done with the spawn , Just a guess. Let us know how you did.

    Melvin Price is in Missouri/Illinois, correct? Not sure how many folks down in Mississippi know about it. LOL

    Sorry, couldn't resist. You might want to have the Mods move this thread.

    I dont know if you can put in at the dam. We put in at the columbia bottoms conservation area. It is just off High way 270 . Turn north just before or after you get across the bridge crossing the MISS river depending on which way you are coming from. It is a nice place to launch.
