    Came to St Louis with my wife for a meeting she has tomorrow. We walked across the street from the hotel to the Union Station and I found a great place to pick up some bait. Found out the Union Station has a cement pond next to Landry’s Seafood that is loaded with jumbo goldfish:roll_eyes::wink:.

    Told my wife, wished I had brought my poles and a bucket for the bait. Then I could have fished the big river, while my wife attends her meeting, instead I’ll probably make like a gandy and roam the streets:sad2:. lol


    But seriously, I'm bringin my poles next time.

    thats no good when ever on a trip bring a fishing pole. Use the boy scout motto. always be prepared. have a good one, i would say go catch a cardinals game but there on the west coast.
