    Hi Garry and Brian. I have not seen any post about Rend for some time. It has been slow for most, on other area lakes. With these waters cooling down it should get right soon.

    We can hope so Mickey. Going to try and fish between the rain bursts we are supposed to be getting all labor day weekend. Hope it behaves a bit so I can get some fishing in between the college papers I am writing. :eek:oooh:

    That is major planning problems!!!

    Looks like that is best weekend that I can make it out there with the county institute days and all. Last one before Thanksgiving time.. meaning probably lack of camping there after. Need to winterize everything and be ready to cry until Spring.

    Just for some info on Rend..... Son and I were there last Friday. Bite was slow..... we finally picked up some shad and caught 13 or so eaters out at the mouth of Gun Creek in 18' - 10' of water.
