hey jeff, welcome. yeah the area above lock and dam 18 to where the port and bird creek is an awesome area if you have a boat. id guarantee some record fish are running in that area. catfish central frequents that area alot more than me so he'll be able to give some more specifics. when the current gets going on that river id advise hitting it hard. also are you the guide that works grand and some missourri lakes? if so ive seen you in several of the catfish insiders. if not, well your still allright by me. anyways good luck out there.
