Howdee! Well, the date has been set. Me and TCAT will hit the Mo. River at either Glasgow, Dalton, or Brunswick July 5th & 6th. Didn't fish the river at all last year. In years past, we have concentrated mostly on trotlines. We got the boat rigged for R&R now, and will be making the transition. Not to say we won't put out a line, but our primary goal will be to catch those river fish on rod and reel, and I would like some predictions for July, and maybe some pointers. We've caught some fish in the past by anchoring to the tip of wing dikes, and walking our baits back into the scour holes, but only little fish. I hooked a mega flathead around the old wooden pylons before, but it got wrapped up, and I lost it. :sad2: We usually get our bait from the sloughs near the river, so it will be shad, carp and buffalo minnows, and perch of any type. Any thoughts and opinions on river fishing with rod and reel in July would be cool. I'm not sure what their spawn pattern will be...if they will be mostly done, or what, or where to concentrate. It would be possible to fish up in the Chariton or Grand if needed, but in the past, we haven't had alot of success doing that.
