My reels are spooled with 50lb powerpro, the boat is gased up and the throw net is in good shape. The only thing not ready is the darn weather. Cold, Windy and snowing in Columbia, MO. The weather is suppose to warm up over the next few days though and with that maybe the fishing will warm up. I plan on hitting the Missouri River as soon as the weather cooperates and chasing some big ol' blues.
