    I fish above Alton, Ill. just about every weekend.. The water is getting close to normal here again.. The fish are finally starting to get active.. Water temps are around 70.. So about the time they finally start biting it'll be time to spawn.. If we don't get any more rain north of us this weekend June should be a good month..

    Several of us fish just south of St. Louis, Festus area. Where were you planning on fishing?

    The world record bluecat was caught here in Alton below the dam at the meeting of the Missouri and Mississippi. If you come bring lots of lead.
