    thats the problem now with water around here i noticed all these duckhunters. Im orignally from Mt vernon and there was hardly any duck hunters around there. I never fished above Alton though. Might have to hit it up one weekend. You game? Maybe the next week or so.

    No... I fish from a boat.. Can't get to deep water from the bank... And that way I can move to different spots easy... Knocked my transducer off last Saterday.. So my fishfinder doesn't work anymore.. Now I have to do it the old fashioned way and hunt for them..
