    for the next few day you should be able to fish just about anywhere up here. But if you are going to do it you better do it soon because all the water they are getting up north is heading down this way and its not going to look pretty. i have heard other people having a hard time putting in above Alton but i didn't have a hard time and a lot of people put in bellow Alton yesterday.

    I was out there with Gary, Willie, and Ryan this afternoon and there is a lot of trash in the water still and the dykes are just starting to show a little.

    They are still out there, I had them drop me off. Willie snagged about a 30lbs. Asian and all 3 of them had snagged a few each of smaller ones. Gary got a hold of small Spoonie about 5-6 lbs. and lost another one that would of went at least 30lbs. along side the boat.

    Me and my brother went up to Crystal City to prefish today first time we have fished in that area we did real well river is pretty high and trashy. Sounds like it is going to get worse. It was a good time.

    Good deal there midmocat. You guys take it easy on those boys down there.:smile2: Don't catch them all. I may see ya tomorrow at Tombstone if it is raining. We'll have to hit the water some time if you don't mind a tag along and if you are ever in need of a partner give me a call if you can use a big, clumbsy, noise maker in the boat.HAHA.

    As of right now it is going to be close to coming in our low bottoms probably within a foot or so. It is supposed to crest at 23' in Herman it comes over our low ground levees about 24'5.

    Hopefully it will do as they are calling for then. My little sister lives near St. Louis and they are talking about the Marrimac getting in their house. I think it is supposed to crest early in the mourning so hopefully they will stay dry also.
