    I was just wondering if any of you have tried your luck at any of the power plant lakes or warm water discharges yet this winter. I was thinking of giving it a try cause we did real well back in febuary and march but wasn't sure about this time of year

    i would think that the temp has fallen enuff to make the bait fish to school around the warm water, where there is larger # of bait fish should be kittys close by,

    I never had any luck fishing the warm water discharges on the river.. Had luck getting bait but never any kitties.. My old stompin grounds was above Alton around the power plant but not the warm water..

    Nope, have only seen one small gator since I got here.. Just not enough hours in the day to do everything anymore.. Must be an age thing.. In bed by 8 every night to get rested for work..
