    hey, that is pretty interesting.
    what would be some things we need out there on the mo river to help out with conservation efforts?
    i think some man made habitats to increase breeding areas for all fish, i.e. various structures placed underwater to provide cover for cats, baitfish, etc.
    perhaps some actuall thought put into combating the asian problem out there. i know they make a great bait, but one cant over look that fact that since they're population explosion in the river the shad population has declined. i cant help but think the two things are connected.

    I’m planning on being there in St. Charles on the 2nd, our fisheries require our time, rather it be on the water or speaking up on it’s behalf... good point on the shad Brandon, any feedback from those that can't attend that would like to be brought up nows the time.

    I wish I could go to that too but I have to work. Michael, if you get to speak could you ask if there are any plans on control or the elimination of the fat head carp. I fear if we don't so something soon our river will not be the same when my grandson is my age.

    It never hurts to bend an ear for the catfish when you get the opportunity, and these people were happy to listen to our input tonight.... but that was partly because we were the only people there to talk to them :smile2:

    One thing you will find is that they are really looking for input right now on their bureaucratic process of deciding how to decide what they want to do. They are a couple of years out from really soliciting input on specific issues.

    Yep not to many other people there besides us catfishermen. I gather that a lot of there plan consist of helping the Tern and the Pallid sturgeon. This planning plan there in now is going to take 7-8 years then they will move into an action plan. The whole thing is going to take 30-50 years. Lot of government workers going to retire on this project.
