    if you are looking for a good place on the river i would say go down to captain rons i cant remember the name of the road but it is the marina accross from the bingo center. when you get down there go about a quarter mile down fromthe bar to where there are alot of trees but some open areas and we usually do pretty good around that part. use cut bait and chicken livers. weve caught plenty of them in the ten to fifteen range

    How far are you willing/want to travel. Lots of fishing just south of you on the Illinois etc.
