    Andy.. I normally fish that area a lot. but with all the high water I haven't been down there for a while. Their are lots of nice places to fish fore flats in the grand. and with the high water you should be able to go up the Grand fore miles. The water will be dead at Brunswick so you will need to go up river. The Rail Road bridge normally has a big drift just above it. I have had good luck their at times. If you have any more questions just pm me and I will try and answer any questions you have. Watch out fore all the flying carp. I haven't had much luck finding shad on the Grand , I normally go to the Missouri to get them. .....Rusty.....

    I was @ Bosworth today. fished for 6 hours. Used shad, creek chubs,bluegill. and night crawlers. Finally caught 4 small channels. they weren't biting at all. not even the little ones. I probably had 10 bits in the 6 hours. The River is still up about 3 feet. starting to clear. I believe they are on the nest big time. I fished up river from the ramp about 3 miles. Fished water depth anywhere from 30' down to 5 '. nothing. I hope you have better luck then I did. Good luck ... Rusty

    How did the fishing trip go last weekend? I hadn't seen a report so I thought I would ask.

    Sounds like you did pretty well. Were you fishing the Missouri. I have never caught a very big blue on the Grand. 2-3 pounds. what were you using for bait? what type of structure were you fishing. I know I ask a lot of Questions but I hope I never stop learning that part of the river. Thanks for the info.

    Sounds like the fish are starting to come of the nest. It has got to get better. We should hook up some time and wet a line.
