    Any Spoon River flatheaders on here? Only made it there once last year, but didn't get a single flat. Did end up with 11 nice eater sized channel though. I am thinking of making a couple trips back this spring if anyone would want to go, let me know.

    :big_smile:Went there one time and it took three tries to get my boat turned around,river to small boat to long.The banks were covered in old bank poles and generally the whole thing looked like a over worked creek.That is not counting the town of London Mills having all there houses that border on the river running waste water into it,each house had a pipe coming out of the ground going to the river.There are fish in there but if i can walk across most of it then cant really call it a river LOL.

    I am going to try to do some fishing around Bernadotte this time. I found some pretty nice places last year, but I guess it just wasn't my time!
