    Snapped a couple pics of a SWEET!!! looking spot I found on the river yesterday. I think Im going to have to come back later this summer when the water temp and the water level is up a bit higher with some live bait ....

    This pile is right in the middle of a bend, where we tied off, the current is slack water. Right now, river is on the way down (Fishing was hard everywhere yesterday :angry:) in about 4-6ft of water.. I think when the river is on the up rise, with about 3-4 foot higher, some live bait, this spot should produce some really nice fish...

    What do you think?

    Looks like a great spot, very typical of the spots that I fish. Cant wait till that water warms up and gets them big flatties moving and eating.

    Let me save you from wasteing some time. There are no fish in that area.

    Can you please email me a detailed map of where it is on the river so I can go post some signs to keep others from wasteing their time also. :big_smile:

    By the way, how much is an out of state fishing license for IL?? (Just in case, lol)

    Tim, as soon as the water hits 60 degrees you better be fishing that spot. You should have a decent few weeks on that snag cause fish from a mile or more away will be moving around looking for a place to spawn, and that is a prime spot. So you'll get quite a few coming by to inspect that spot. But a big guy will stake it out and chase the others away eventually. But that don't stop them from coming lol. I have caught 40+ lb flats from 2-3 feet of water under simular snags. If the water is slow try to set up in between both and cast toward the bank and each snag. With all the movement through there you will get hit. Good luck.

    Ooooo neat Tim! That looks very interesting :smile2:. If you go out and start slayin' the flatheads there though, I bet it'll become the "no-tell" HOTEL :big_smile:.

    I would have to strongly disagree with all the preceding posts except Tea's.
    It looks like a terrible place, one that I wouldn't waste my time with if I were you.
    In fact, if you give me the GPS coordinates I will anchor my boat upstream from it and stay there to prevent anyone else from wasting their time. Of course I would have to have a few rods out so I don't look suspicious...W

    Better post the GPS coordinates so we can all avoid that place.

    Let us know how you do.
