    Thanks for the info, I need to find some skipjack and shad, can't get to the dam yet due to the high water. I am not sure where you are talking about, any additional info would be appreciated. Thanks

    portage des su power plant is almost directly across from piasa creek. and you can catch shad in marina at piasa harbor, skipjack i have been useing is frozen. alton bait shop has it are you can get it from a guy of craigslist for 10 bucks for five pounds.314-280-9234. he has all you need and the price is right. but just put in, in piasa creek and go out around island to power plant on other side. i fish the mouth of hot water output all the way to were the coal conveyer crosses. good luck
