    I fish out by Canton Chute in IL. Where my friends camp is at. I fish all day usually 6-when i feel like stopping. I also go to lakes that run into the mississippi such as libby, long, hogback islands. I jug fish, trout line, and cast away. The only way you can get into the lakes is if the waters up, which most of the time it is.

    I've fished Meyer Dam, Quincy Dam, and Saverton. The best striper fishin is probably Saverton. That is were the big ones are. Quincy Dam has a lot of smaller ones. If you want to catch a lot fish there. If you want that big striper fish Saverton. Now catfishin I'd say Meyer and then Saverton, but i havent cat fished Quincy Dam a lot.

    I'd be up for that as long as at least one parent came along as well.
    As a parent myself, I wouldn't want my kids meeting some guy from the internet without me being there. :thumbsup:

    I've been fishing upper pool 26 mostly around Cuiver Island. Been working up a boat I bought in August. Will cover more area of Miss. and the Mo. this year, pool 26 really gets worked over.
