    Hello Brothers! I was reading through the topic about the Alton/St Louis get together and everything there seemed great. I was wondering if any of you brothers would like to meet up somewhere to fish the Ohio. I would enjoy going up to the St Louis area or around there but it is a 3 hour drive and would have to plan it way in advance to fit in my schedule. Would anyone be interested in fishing the Ohio or maybe meeting somewhere like Rend Lake?

    JW.... I would like to get up there and fish that famous water with you guys but I am scared of pink.
    Do you have any campgrounds there ?

    2 times I have planned to come up to fish and both times something came up. last time Eric said the weather was to bad.

    I really just have to learn how you guys catch them big fish. Tell me the truth is that big fish Eric is holding a blow up fish.

    I may send you a PM then. I'm about 7 miles west of Shawneetown but I don't have a boat big enough for the river and almost never get to fish there. I'll also look into the Rend lake thing.

    Not sure if there are any campground off the river but there is camping available at Glen O Jones lake and Pounds Hollow that aren't too far away.

    Hmmmm, my parents have a cabin on the river close to golconda (ropers landing). I sure wish I knew how to fish that big river.

    Well, would anyone be interested in a Southern Illinois Fishing Trip? Crab Orchard, Rend Lake, Ohio River?

    Give me enough notice, and I may be able to swing down for a Friday night/Saturday Morning. I don't mind the 4+ hour drive, and please, no pink.

    Dmitri,
    I would be interested if I can work out the dates. I am about 50 miles from Rend Lake.

    Do you fish Rend much? I have just moved back to the area and am not familiar with the lake. I've been there a couple times this summer with not much luck. Anyone having advice on the lake would be appreciated.

    I have fished Rend once, but my step-dad has been out there a lot but never really fished for cats. I know there are plenty of cats out there though. Someone else would probably be more help on lake information, but it would be awesome to plan a get-together this next month or two.

    Dmitri, I live across the river from you not far from Cave in rock in Marion Ky. Get a date sometime and we will all get together somewhere on the river. There are some nice spots to fish above Smithland dam all the way to Shawneetown. Rend lake is decent as well.

    All right. Maybe JW would like to join also if we have time for a long go at it, he's about an hour away in Henderson.
