    I am going to be fishing the river in a couple weeks and I was wondering where the best place to find channels would be. I would rather go for some bigger fish, but this time will be quantity over quality for me. I will be fishing near Pekin and have never fished that far south on the river and don't really know much about the area. Can anybody help me out?
