    dont feel bad ya got out there and went it has been a tuff year for sure stay after em thats why they call it fishing not catching
    dont know how big your cutting your bait but this is the time of year to down size a little
    this is one of the worst years ive seen on the river but there has been some good
    just keep after em and youll tie into a hog

    I also came up empty handed on the Mississippi down at Grand Tower. Used 4 different baits, all I could catch was Perch on crawlers. Tried cut Perch, got no bites.
