    I know that it is hunting season....but does anyone have any fishing updates of anykind? Just curious to know what has been going on. As for me I will be hitting some wintering holes on the Des MOines river this sunday...I will keep you posted.

    Good luck tomorrow Todd, I got out for a few hours today . Weather was wonderful but the fish weren't hungry. It was just great to get out there again.

    Well I managed to make it out Sunday like I planned. It was by far a very very bad day for fishing. It was a great day to be outside but a bad day as far as the bite goes. I managed to catch 2 dinks...I mean dinks, like 4 and 5 inches long. I cant' remember how long it has been since I have caught a channel cat that small. I can't even really remember how long it has been since I have caught a channel cat that still had spots on it....not good! But all in all it still was a nice day for weather unlike the weather that is suppose to be on its way in a few days:sad2:

    I was using fresh cut shad and fishing in 18 feet of water when I caught these and I got skunked at every other depth, 4 ft, 8 ft, 12 ft and 22 ft.

    thats too bad...i tried fishing last week and didn't get a bite either in around the des moines area. i might just hang up the rods for a while and load up on some gear.
