    went out saturday 3/11/06. put in at putney's landing, illinois side, between lock and dam #17 and #18. crappie were biting good on minnows around brush piles. lots of boats out, every body seemed to have fish. caught maybe 30 total, all good size. kept 6 around 2 # each. stayed in putney chute, wind was bad on main river. cast some jigs, got some 10" bass, would have been nice bait! dead shad everywhere.

    mushroom time is coming, gotta eat corn beef and cabbage first!
    ( boil that corned beef brisket 20 minutes to get the salt out, cover it with cracked black pepper, and smoke over oak and apple 4 hrs. best pastrami in the world!! )
