    Hey I'd love to get together with you. I've been living in Rock Falls for about 6 months and I've only caught one flathead. I'm moving to Sterling in 2 weeks with my family so I'll be busy with that. After I get done with the move we'll have to get together. I'll pm my number to you.

    I see from your Avatar pic that you are fishing the Lower Dam on the RockFalls side. My wife is from there and we come up every now and then to visit. I have fish there many times and caught some nice ones. Don't overlok the Hennepen Canal, It is loaded with nice cats.

    go across the street from crow vallet to the lake walk up to the house and ask the old man if you can fish he will say yes as long as you ask him first then go straight from the boat ramp across the river you will see a stick sticking up its about 8ft deep there with alot of underwater wood cover anchor about 20yds off the bank and fan cast you will get snags but you will catch fish there i just recently fished a tournament there fished that spot we won first place and i have a 14ft boat with a 6hp motor
