    I left the house about 5 this morning and drove the 35 miles to the alton marina. There was a couple of guys putting in when I got there. So I launched the boat and went through the lock. Had to really weave through a couple of trees and some trash at the gate. I drove over to what used to be maple island, it's gone, all I could see was some trees. Anyway not much trash in the river, a tree ect here and there but easy to avoid.

    I only stayed out a couple of hours as I could not get any bait. I caught some blue gils yesterday and put them in a areated bucket outside. This morning the bucket was turned over and all the fish were gone. Must of been a racoon.:smile2:
