I had a great night on the Mississippi on Sunday night courtesy of the Grumper guide service. We launched from Plattin Rock, spent a little time castnetting for bait, and then headed for downtown St Louis. Seemed like everywhere we anchored we caught fish as we worked our way around and then back downstream. My best of the night was a ~25lb blue from the last place we anchored. It was good to meet Bill and Oklahoma, who were anchored next to us in the famous Death Barge for part of the night. We fished all night in Gary's boat, and then I headed out in mine for a little bit of daylight scouting and fishing, and a nice nap before driving home. Mostly I just drove around looking at sonar and marveling at all the water and how big the barges were. I did anchor up and fish a few more spots, but no fish were harmed. You guys have a heck of a fishery down there. We get big fish up this way, but we definitely don't see the numbers of fish that you do down there. And it's awesome to have a safe place like Plattin Rock to launch and leave your vehicle. I'll be back that way for the Gateway Classic at the end of August, and I now have a lot better feel for the fishing and water conditions, where to find bait, etc. A big thanks to Gary for getting me out there!
