    As of right now, I'm going up on the 27th of March. I have not heard if the river is open yet, cause I just got back from Mississippi. But, if history repeats it self, the suckers should be at Omer.

    Ya, sponge, rubber salmon egg, piece of yarn, anything to make you legal I guess. We always tried to get there the thursday before they dropped the nets. That date always seemed to work for us. I'm trying to find out what shape the river is in. Anyone have any info.

    This snow and colder temps keep pushing the suckers back. Monday morning it was 5 degrees here.

    I hear what you're saying man. My trip might be postponed for a few days. I'll wait and see what I hear from the folks up at Omer. I guess I could stop at Standish and go to the Wig Wam! You never know, bad luck at the fishing hole, might bring good luck to the Tee Pee.
