    I would guess at least a couple weeks for dam repairs, and they might leave it down for the winter to leave room for spring rains. those are both just guesses though.

    I went out there last night and it was neat to see. I was at the dam and hundreds and hundreds of crawdads were crawling out of the riprap. The water dropped significantly while I was there, and I saw hundreds of carp scurry off the flat into the channel. Never seen the water so silty in the st. joe. How many fish were sucked through the gates, I wonder? There were no dead fish on the flats where I walked. The fish downstream probably had a feast of a lifetime. My brother caught nine cats upstream at some inlet to the channel, but neither of us caught a thing at the dam.

    I bet it is neat to see. Some of you guys that live around it need to go sink some brushpiles out there while it's dry and make yourselves some crappie attractants!!!
