    With tomorrow being my birthday, I decided to take a break from studying and do some fishing, I have been so busy with homework and studying for tests I haven't had much time on the river or time to myself. I sent the kids off to school loaded up the boat and headed out. My first stop was below Alton dam, water to low and ramp to muddy the second place I went was Alton Marina, water to low. So I decided to put in at Columbia Bottoms, only put two fish in the boat but this one was the biggest. I caught him on skipjack head below a wing dike.

    Trying to figure out where I was from the pic wont do you any good Johnny, I had to chase a boat down and ask them to take my pic. I went fishing by myself and some guy fishing with his dad was nice enough to take my picture.:smile2: After talking to him for a while I found out he was an avid archery deer hunter, he hunts a lot around kampsville around Calhoun County I think we are going to hook up this year and do some hunts together.
