    Thanks! I had to go catch some sunfish becuase the only thing I can find at the bait stores are some small shiners.

    I haven't fished the Eel for a long time. I used to fish between the big dam and the small one but I never caught anything real nice. Not to long ago a 80-85lb flathead was caught downstream from the little dam underneath the sixth street bridge in 2' of water.

    I've seen the picture and it was weighed at a local bait shop. The guy didn't know it was a state record fish. I showed him in the DNR book that the record was 79# and he couldn't believe it. Is it possible for him to still put in an application?

    that would suck! i dont think he can do it now,pretty sure you need to produce the fish to a biologist. then they wiegh it on certified scales. poor guy will be kicking himself for a long time for that.

    The river has risen quite a bit over the last few days. The action seems to be around the creeks right now. I fished the actual river tonight and didn't get one hit.

    Sorry i don't post much on this site anymore guys, the management deleted lots of my post, and i've got to the point that i almost expect them to be deleted anymore. So i just quit posting !
