    We fish a little south of the city (on the Mississippi) and the river is finally low enough to get out on it.

    We had a reasonably successful night, considering only being on the water for 3 hours.

    The highlight was catching a fish worthy of using as an avatar. I brought a camera specifically for this! Hopefully, I'll get posted.

    Bait was plentiful, but we were having most of our success using herring. (which wasn't plentiful) No luck on shad. Some good hits on asian carp but couldn't get them in. Also good hits on tiny carp.

    Thanks for the welcome. I've been checking out the site almost daily for the entire summer. You guys have a really good thing going here.

    I actually only got one picture. I'm using it as my avatar.

    I started fishing for cats two summers ago. The fish in the avatar is my personal best.
