    I think my visit last year at the gathering cooked my goose for this year. My wife said no way. I even bought a trailer but she's not willing to travel 220 miles with it. Sorry guys, I'm up the creek with out the paddle.:sad2:

    Trevor, I can't go with out her, she will not let me. I talked her into going to a gathering at Ky and it looks like that might be the only one I go to this year. Sorry but I can't do every thing I like:smile2:

    My dad and I will most likely be there Friday and Saturday. We'll either fish through the night or go home and drive up again Saturday evening. Hope to meet a lot of people.

    I'm thinking about trying to make it out there for a day. It sounds like fun. Sure any day fishing with friends is fun.

    Dan... It's loads of fun.. Last year we spent more time visiting and BSing than we did fishing.. By the time you meet everyone and visit some it's almost past fishing time...

    Screen... when are you gonna start taking orders for shirts..

    Ok, I moved out here not long ago and I am still learning the bodies of water ; I would like to go to this gig, but where the heck is this ? Is this lower illinois on the mississippi where it meets the ohio ? Fill me in on where this is, and is good for big cats or just numbers ? I think my cousin and i are game, I just need more info.

    David... I haven't fished this part of the river... It's 20 miles north of Alton, Ill. I usually fish 8 miles above Alton, on the Mississippi.. I caught a 44 lb flathead and 20 to 30 lb blues all summer.. And too many eaters to keep count of.. When they are biting the fishings good and when they ain't... well it's just nice to be out there anyway...

    Hey guys... I need to update the gathering page.. Has anyone else got a campground or is everybodyelse waiting till the day they get there.. I think from what I heard that all the reservable sites are booked now.. All that is left is the first come first serve sites.. We also need to start working on the Saterday morning meal..
