    Sorry you are having no luck.

    I am bank-bound still until next week and I normally go a lot longer than you are between bites.

    So......... you can feel good, someone is having worse luck than you. LOL

    Think I'll grab the boys and hit it this afternoon. May not catch anything but it beats setting in the house.

    Good Luck.

    I am sure the fishing will soon become worse than it has ever been in the history of Missouri starting next week. Newspapers will write articles wondering where all the fish have went. Of course they will ultimately discover that it is my fault. I will have my brand new boat next week you see and I know how my luck runs.:lol:

    I'm getting off work today about 4:30 and am heading to the river after that!! I plan on trying to catch a few skips up at the Melvin Price dam and then launching the boat! I Can't wait!!!

    I was at Mel Price last night, and I couldn't muster even one single skipjack.

    They've been running hot and heavy for 2 weeks...I go...and someone turned off the switch!

    DOH!:crazy:

    I caught some on Saturday along the lock wall on the other side of the river. You are in a boat, so you sould hit it easy enough. It was right in that 60x5 yard nook at the end of the outermost wall away from the lock.

    Good luck!
