Tkeyhunter and I went to Thebes friday night. Guess if I was halfway smart would have checked the Mississippi river level before going. I have never seen it that high down there. It was almost up to the parking lot, had one heck of a time putting in. A big pile of sand had been pushed up into the ramp, could not put in the north side at all finally got in on the south side ramp. Okay finally in the river, a barge had just went by the wind was blowing like crazy, the waves were bad! The water was almost a dark chocolate it was so muddy, tons and tons of logs and debris. Well we did go on to a spot I know but there was nothing recognizable by land features. There was so much current and debris that my depth finder would hardly work. We got down there about 5pm because we were going to fish that night . We quickly decided against that, we did fish for awhile but did not expect nor did we have any luck. Ended up pulling out before dark and heading home. One good thing did happen BethAnn and I decided whenever we fish the Mississippi we will always wear our life jackets!! It is just too dangerous.
