    Went to Columbia Bottoms today with catmankev and his son Brit.We put the boat in about 6.30 this morning and got some shad in the throw net.We then went up the Missouri to the 367 bridge and started hitting the points of the wing dams back down to the boat ramp,well no luck.We called it quits about 1.30 started getting pretty warm in the sun.When we got back to the boat ramp there was 4 or 5 other trailers in the parking lot and a guy as soon as we got up to the truck was asking if our truck had been broke into,his and the truck next to his had,we were about 2 parking spots away from them.Someone had tried to get into catmankevs tailgait but the bed cover was locked and they couldn't the tailgait all the way open,The guy also told me that this was the 2nd time this has happened to him there,they busted out his lock on his door stole his stereo and some tools out of the back. So Beware if you go to Columbia Bottoms:sad_2a:

    Ugh, that blows.

    Thanks for the heads up, we haven't used that ramp yet this year but it's good to know in case we do head that way.

    Thanks for the info. I have never seen the police there. they need to start watching it. I guess if a guy watched the river and another one watched the road it would be hard to get caught. Its pretty isolated back there.
