    My wife usually fishes with me, but she's not feeling well and can't stay out very long.. Waters too low at Alton Dam to get my boat in.. Looking for someone that likes fishing nites.. I'm wanting to try fishing the Kaskaskia.. Put in at New Athens and go upriver.. A friend at work said that the flatties hit good upriver.. Wife doesn't like me taking the boat out by myself.. It's a 15 ft Crestliner, Fiberglass, TriHull, Open Bow.. It's kinda heavy for 1 person to load and unload... Anybody interested in doing some fishing.. I usually fish either Friday nite after work or Saterday evening and nite.. Sometimes both...hehehe

    Hey Harold, wished I lived closer to your area, I'd fish with you any time. I have the same problem, my wife don't like the water so I go by my self. Good luck on finding a fishing buddy.

    If I knew where you was I would fish with you. My GF said I was way to far from you to fish with you. I hope you find a partner soon.

    Awe man, I wish I was closer partner. However, I am in the champaign area and would like to fish Clinton some time. I frequent lake mattoon, newton CIPS and shelbyville occasionally so pm me if you're ever in the area. I'm no pro but I love to fish.
