    Jamie , looks like you like fishing 4 the blues. The Kansas River around Topeka is pretty shallow, so most of your bluecattin will probably be done at Milford Reservoir. Its our largest lake, and has blues upwards of 50 lbs. That is about top end from what I gather. The Lower Kansas River will be an hour and change to the east of you, as well as the Mighty Mo river. There is opportunities for huge blues and flatheads there. So if you have a big river boat, you might want to hold on to that one. They usually work well in the reservoirs. There is other Kansas members that will be able to help you more. Im sure they will chime in shortly. Good luck. Looking forward to meeting you. :big_smile:
