    Looks like you had a blast dave. are the rollers opened up down there also? the water looks kinda calm compared to where the damn is up here in muscatine.. we went out sat also didn't take the cam but managed to boat a half dozen.

    Nice drum!
    I can't believe you went fishing at Keokuk, knowing I live in Quincy & didn't call me. I'm hurt... :cry:
    LOL, just kidding. I don't have an Iowa license anyway, just IL & MO.

    if you got an illinois license, you can fish the mississippi if illinois borders it..

    this weekend was absolutely very fun. caught in 5 hours saturday 59 channels and sunday in a bout 4 hours, 29.. was very fast action.. nothing big , a few 3# fish, but on average about a pound..... lets just say an idiot from shore could have caught fish this weekend. ( i was in the boundary waters all last week chasing smallies and a few walleys, but had more fun slammin these catfish right here!
