    Hey mikeskywalker , I tried to reply to your PM but this thing says I need 10 posts before I can. (kinda lame ) So I'm gonna click around and post HI everywhere.
    Anyway, I fished Redfield spillway on Thursday and caught a few cats to eat. Nothin big was biting. The bait shop is now open full time in Redfield. Caught a bunch of crappie at Beaver lake and a 4# bass last week. The bass are getting huge there. Second time I've caught some 4 lbs or over.

    I'm just down the road from it. On 15th st. Haven't been there yet this year, too busy tring to get crappie right now. The numbers seem to be pretty good since there wasn't any ice to fish on this year.

    I'm up for a gathering in Adel. I camp there a couple times a year it's a nice campground, good shower house, in my opinion can be hit or miss for the fishing, but a bad day fishing is better than a good day working. I live in Greenfield and this is my first time posting but I've been lurking in the background for awhile.

    I think a meeting in Adel sounds great. Been wanting to fish that area for some time now. I live in Mitchellville. What do you all think about the middle of July??

    Hoping to renew some interest in a catfishing gathering here in Iowa. I think it's a great idea. Any suggestions on how we can hammer out a date and location that would be workable?
