    As I sit and wait fer mama to get home so I can hit the water(with my #1 fishing buddy) Id like to share what was in our local paper last night....Man caught a 43 lb blue in a local tourney on the strethch of river I fish I dont know where.... all it said was MISSIPPI RIVER .....
    Our fisherey is outstanding here and very versitile.....we have a little of it all maybe not the biggest but then again??? it aint been caught yet either! We have a little of everything here & I must argue some of the best fresh water fishing anywhere in the world right in the back yard....any of you are in the area look me up so I can meet you or fish(LOL)but I must warn you fishing is fishing and you just never know what youl catch.:wink:

    I grew up with Greg, and his sister is my Aunt. So I can tell you Greg is a big time hunting and fishing guy. I can also tell you a story of him catching a 22lb carp back in the 60's with a 202 zebco. He fought it for 3 hours finally had to swim after it cause the zebco had stripped out by then. What a day. Congrats to Greg. Later Andy

    I remember hearing about that tournament last year. Half of the day you get to spend up under the Keokuk dam and the other half of the day you have to spend below Warsaw. If i had to guess id say he caught that fish right up towards the Keokuk dam.
