    ive been working so much i just havent had anytime to fish. but i hit the water today see if i could find a few , cloudy wind out of the southeast & a tow comming up or down every five min. but i did get out & got 13 fish the biggest one 22 pounder, had a blast, love this time of yr. for fishing the mississippi for blues. all the fish came out of the same hole, its 70 feet deep i was on the inward side fishing in 40ft. of water. took a while to find them but was well worth it

    Good for you Russ!!

    Only left out one detail.....what was the bait of choice for our favorite whiskered pals that lurk in the dark depths of the fine Mississippi River? :big_smile:

    I'm jealous I must admit, :roll_eyes: I wish I would have been out there. How long were you on the river today? What was the water/air temp today? Thanks buddy!
