Went fishing on the mississippi river today and got skunked. Theres so much water its kinda hard to know where to start. We started out at about 10 am fishing the back of a wing dike in about 32 foot of water,nothin,then we went into more back-water area got a few bites but didnt catch nothing,my question is during the day what would be the best area to fish? i have a small jon boat so i really dont wanna be anchored in the middle of the river.also is the back-water part of the river worth bothering with or should i stay on the main river? 2 pounders or 60 pounders i dont care i just wanna catch some fish! any help?
