    You can drive a truck down there?, Lol I have drove by there hundreds of times and looked, but never considered driving anything down there unless it was 4x4 and had big tires, and has some serious B@!!$ to get itself out. Too many trees, weeds, bushes, and other things to get stuck in!

    Jimmy, Danny, did ya'll hit the IPL dam? If so, how did you do?

    We got skunked at Morse, cause bait dont count! Lol

    They was pulling in bullheads, bluegills, rockbass, pumpkinseeds, and some other hybrid bait fish, oh yea, they was catching crawdads on night crawlers fishing up by the rocks, I would say they had a half dozen or more of those...

    I am going to buy a pontoon boat for big lake/reservoir fishing for next season. I figure with it being a big "deck" I can get about 4- 5 of us fishing from it on each corner. I am about done with these fished out bank spots! Between people taking everything, and as Bill talks about the commercial fishers taking so many fish, I am fed up!

    No worries Otis, I fished there a while back and the biggest sinker I had was a 2 ounce no roll. I did get right up by the dam itself and it didnt move too much after it settled, but anywhere else it moved drastically unless I walked down stream or fished in just the little pool to the side.

    Maybe meet ya sometime down that way, I have unfinished business at that Dam!

    Good luck...

    ah there isn't anything wrong with men wearing pink! I think you all should wear it and meet at the IPL Dam.
