    Any body fish around Southeast Missouri? If so are you catching any big Catfish right now?

    Ivan Welcome to the BOC. I fish the Miss. from cape to Cairo. I have not been as yet. There is a website you might want to check out for this section of river. They fish the year around .Brownwaters.com. I hope this helps.:big_smile:

    Ivan, I fish the MS river around Cape and it's really high and full of junk right now. I fish with the Brownwater guys. We've been fishing for skipjack this winter getting ready for tournaments and the summer season.

    Ivan, where abouts are you fishing on the Mississippi? I'm down here around New Madrid.

    Matt, have you been catching skips on the river or have you been getting them elsewhere? About the closest I have gotten to a skipjack this winter was a nice 16" shad I netted on Friday, LOL.

    It's a shame that there is no tourney up in Cape this year. I sure enjoyed the one in '06. Of course there isn't one in Caruthersville either this time around. The only one anywhere close, is going to be right here in New Madrid.
