    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.....

    Yeah, channel five just said 2 to 4 inches of rain. The ground is already saturated so it all has to run straight to the rivers. Look out folks, the rivers will both be out of the banks in a matter of days.

    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:.

    They are saying the Mississippi wil crest at Clarksville,Mo the 20th of Mar at 24.8 ft.Flood stage there is 25ft.Really look for it to be higher if we get all that rain thier saying.Plus all that North of us has to melt and come down also_Oh well it's almost Spring and this happens every year.

    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).

    its tough somtimes because the fish get so spread out i will run & gun giving each spot about 15 to 20 mins other times i try to find area where i think they are commming and going and try to get in between i think a lot of it is dumb luck.

    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.
