    Went to the Marais de Cygnes Sunday down south around the wildlife area and had bites all morning. Caught several from 1-2 lbs. Around 1 p.m. before the storm hit, hooked and lost a catfish guesstimated somewhere around the 20 lb mark. Had to seek shelter while the storm went through, but could not get any bites afterward.

    Just a quick question. What were you using for bait? I've been using the old night crawlers and liver and done ok. Nothing to write home about but done ok.

    Using cut shad for bait. I have a buddy who collects winterkilled shad at
    Smithville Reservoir. He hooked me up with several pounds.

    If any one gets out this way today. I'll Be just south of La Cygne, 1700 and Queens or so. See a little Black Toy 4X4, that'll be me. Not the best time of day for it. But it is for me. So consider me JayGoneFishing

    Jay, I have a place at Tanglewood so I'm down that way most weekends. We'll have to get together somtime and fish the river. Have you ever tried the back side of Miami State Fishing Lake? I have brought some nice fish out of the river there.

    I sure think it should be. Kinda still new to the area. Been fishing mostly lakes and ponds here in Linn County Mostly. But spending some time scouting it out. and hope to better results soon. Been having fun, But not found any big ones yet. Ready to go any time Cathunter1978. I'll try to keep you up to date on what I find. Sat. I'm going to a sale south of here were there will be lots of locals that are REALLY into fishing, So I'm going to do some Brain picking while I'm there. Maybe even get more access to the water with any luck.

    TAKE 69 SOUTH OUT OF LACYGNE TO 367TH ST. GO WEST (LEFT) THROUGH NEW LANCASTER STAY ON 367TH TILL IT CURVES TO THE SOUTH KEEP GOING 1/4 MILE TILL YOU COME TO A BRIDGE. PARK ON NORTH SIDE. FISH UNDER THE BRIDGE IN FRONT OF THE RAPIDS. I PREFER GOLDFISH FOR THIS SPOT. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD GOOD LUCK HERE. *****BE CAREFUL IF RAIN IS PREDICTED THE HILL TO GET DOWN THERE IS DIRT AND VERY STEEP. AND THAT RIVER WILL RISE FAST.I'VE SEEN IT RISE A COUPLE FEET IN A MATTER OF 30 MINUTES. AND RUNNIN FROM FLOOD WATER UP A MUD MOUNTAIN WITH A BACK FULL OF GEAR AIN'T NO FUN!!*****:eek: WATCH YOUR POLES I'VE SACRIFICED ONE TO THE FISHIN GODS DOZIN OFF HERE
