    well i am in the franklin county part easiest access 4 me is the bridge at 148 between zeigler and herrin also on 149 between zeigler and west frankfort. i hear the river dams up near benton but no one has answered me back about where near benton i also hear lots of gar in there as well not too worried about the gar right bait choice can keep them away i would think. i have tried to google map the dam and the zoom wont go down far enough to let me see. I keep hearing about tonto bein the authority on bmr sent a pm once never heard back but if u can reach him i would be grateful. thanx
