Those of you that fish the Mississippi below L&D 25 will know what area I am talking about. The area on the Illinois side of the dam where everyone goes to catch bait is extremely hazardous since the river has dropped. Dummy me was running up there full throttle tonight and SLAMMED something rock solid with my lower end. This was downstream of the little pool and far enough into the river that I never expected a thing to be there. No dikes that I know of, couldn't see anything above water and it was just dark enough that if there were visible signs to indicate a hazard I couldn't see it. Anyway, be careful in that area. I have no clue what this will cost me.:angry: Skeg at least needs filed smooth, all 3 prop blades are totally hosed? Boat is 1 month old. Man, this boating stuff is getting pretty pricey.
