    Well, I finally have the boat completely legal. SHHHHH......I took it out a few times without being completely legal, just to test everything out to make sure it was worth legalizing this summer. Anyway, this weekend I plan on heading to Rend Lake. If anyone, like lets say Big Muddy, has had any luck anywhere let me know. I would really like Dillon to catch some, as it has been a pretty rough couple weeks on our end.

    the channels are definitly back on. id put in at the boatel(if its not too windy) and head north west toward the big island. then drift south. ive been using cut gills and shad. you could also put in at the boat ramp thats west of the spillway and try the flat that is on the north side of the spillway. right next to the point. you cant miss it.

    Are you talking about the ramp that is right down the road from the Spillway? The one that has 2 lanes and all that.
