Sounds like the rivers are going to be full and trashy again, Calling for rain in inches next few days and have a flood/flash flood watch until weeks end :crazy: Any of you head out keep it safe, if the map they were showing is even close to the rain fall amounts there is going to be some serious water headed down for a while.

Yeah, I just got off the phone with Robert, he's saying they're calling for LOTS of rain in this neck of the woods. The ol' MO will be sending some major water down St. Louis way.....

Yep Bob, also was looking at the map up north and they are showing 3-5" of rain to fall up Iowa area and a bit North, man thats a lot of water going to be headed down, not to mention all of the northern show that still hasn't melted off. Ol' river sounds like she may get a bit nasty for a while..... Just gonna screw up them eye's for a while :sad2:.

That's all right some of my best fishing has been in high water situations.:big_smile:

Well Jason, you and I are going to need to hook up and go fishing together then when all that water gets here, I have the worst luck when the water is high!:angry: It seems that I have no idea what the hell I'm doing when the water is way up! :embarassed:

the trick to high water is trying to remember what it looked like when it was above the water (STRUCTURE).

Well I could use some of that dumb luck!!:smile2::smile2: Maybe......if you're feeling like you just don't want to pull up an anchor, you could give me a call.........you know, I'll just hang out and watch and pull anchor for ya in exchange!!! :wink::smile2::smile2::smile2:

I'm batting a big fat %.000 in high water conditions!

The magic number for the tournament will be 26 feet. Anything above that on the gauge and we will probably have to reschedule the tournament. 26 and below we should be okay. Keep your fingers crossed.
