    Is there one behind the hospital in Burlington? I was thinking I saw one there with a boat ramp about 20 feet before the dam. I thought that was crazy.

    I'll be fishing for flatheads.Very few blues in Neosho except down south.Might catch some big channels while fishing for flats.I'll be using perch or bluegills or bullheads if I can find them.

    Yeah theres one there,not sure about boat ramp.Rivers kind of wild for a boat right now.7 people had to be rescued near Chanute last week.Its all private property anyway you cant go anywhere.

    Yeah I got a buddy whos boat got ripped to shreds, and him and his wife and her friend were stranded at john redmond. I tried to get them but couldn't find them. I ran out of gas searching. I got a tow from some other guys fishing- they got a ride from water rescue. I went back with him to get all of his camping/fishing gear in my boat the next day. His boat was so shreded we couldn't even tow it out. Its still sitting on some rocks at the lake.

    I fish mostly mornings and evenings.Nights are good but I hate fishing at night not to mention thats when all the crazys and drunks are out.
