    Hey Dillon and I figured we would try our luck again at Rend Lake this weekend. Just wondering if anyone has been and if any good fishing has been done there since the gathering. I am hoping now that the weather has decided to level off the fishing will be a bit better.

    Good luck Jerred. I would be looking for deeper hole with this hot weather. Since my wreck I have not been on a lake so I'm behind on info. Rend has several areas where the mine shafts have opened up. Find one of these and you might find a honey hole.

    I will be out there as well, mainly Sunday. We are having a family reunion that day so I will be there from dawn till the cows come home. I will also most likely be out there Saturday night with Robin and maybe Dillon. Don't know if I will get any fishing done but you and mom and dad and you are more than welcome to come over to our pavilion for some BBQ, god knows you all have fed me more than once. Get back with me and let me know.
