no i didnt catch any blue cats, just 20 or so drum and a bunch of perch. i never fished the big river before, truthfully i have passed over it and beside it a few times but allways seemed to forget it was there. with all the dissapointment i have been getting from the meramec lately i decided to give it a shot. went to some park off 30 that charged me $6.00 to get in, and it was a beautiful spot. cute little waterfall, amazing rock faces. all in all it was very visually pleasing, and with them not allowing pets of anykind it was nice to not have to worry about stepping in someone's dog's sh*t. anyone fish the big river regularly? any decent cats taken from there? seemed like there were a lot of people there with cat rigs perched in pole holders waiting for a bite, but no one i had talked to had any luck that day. its so close to the meramec confluence that i imagine the spawn is putting dents in everyones dreams of a good catfish. at any rate, i was just curious if anyone out there had the 411 on the big river.
