    I pulled these three out of the discharge yesterday. We also pulled a dozen smaller ones in the 8-10lb range. All on cut bait.

    It was super cold, about 4 degrees in the morning, but there was a lot of people out there anyway.

    Those are some nice blues. I have never caught any in the winter time here in Alton.

    The walk sucks, but my brother just tied a snow sled to my back with all our gear. I needed the workout, gained too much weight in my time out of the military:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    Im going again when it warms up a bit. 30 degrees would feel like summer time after Saturday!!!

    So how do I get to the hot ditch. I am not sure where to park or go. I am not familiar with the lake. Any info would be helpful. Thanks

    there,s a parking lot, but the ditch is a long walk. its strait ahead from the gate just follow the tracks if there is any. normally people use a bike but all the snow were supose too get, it might be a little hard lol. there,s some big fish in there.

    When it gets a little nicer. As soon as possible. I am getting cabin fever. I just dont know where I am going or where to go when I get there. I am ready to fish though. Hows the bait situation at powerton?

    This coming weekend may be a good time to go. At least it will be above freezing.
