    I wanted to look around a little beforehand, but the fella that was with me was eager to get started. I wanted to look around and see if there was room along the canal for my 27 foot camper. Suppose I could put it in the campground.

    I didn't make it. Went to the doctor yesterday for a strained shoulder muscle and the doctor wanted to run an EKG. They did and found a problem with my ticker. Didn't feel much like fishing after that. Going to see a specialist and see what can be done.

    Well you didnt miss much. Canal is super high with lots of line trash.

    Still got a nice stringer.

    Well let me know about the next trip and take it easy bro!

    Canal has been a dead zone for flatheads. We have gotten some good size channels off live bait, but the flatheads either moved or got jungle fever and can't get off the spawn!

    Hope everyone is having a better year on the yellow's than I am!

    They've been pretty consistent on the missouri, big ones been kinda hard to come by but there's been plenty of flatheads up to 15 pounds, didn't even notice when they were on the nest, sizes were maybe a little smaller when they were spawning

    About time to break out the fishing gear! I'm usually fishing the canal by now but I just havn't made a trip yet.

    I'll be out there this weekend checking the settling basin for channies!

    Hope everyone has a good year!
