    i not for sure about the feet level. i know buy looking at my normal spots it has a lot to go. i fish the miss down south of st.loius. i fish today at truman boat ramp. If you know the area i could show you some pictures i took today there. Look at the chart and scrol down and look for record LOW water level in that area. it should give you some insite.

    i think if it went down 8 or 9 feet you would be able to get on part of the dikes for sure.

    i can't tell what made them hole's but I think they are to small to hold fish. I use maps also to find spot also. I been looking a "bing" and there is a setting called bird's eye view. works good

    when the picture was taken they were on the water line. they didn't look that big but it looks like it is a sand/gravel bar. i bet it's under water now. the deep of the hole might factor in also.

    Thats cool, still way to high down here to see the dikes. :angry: Did you fish?

    Were only able to fish open water down here, went out Thursday, and only managed 1, 5lb channel on cut sucker fish.

    got on the river around 3ish and my bro ended up getting his personal best of 13lbs. we were fishing off a dike with frozen shad.
