    A few of us are meeting tonight at alton marina to go fishing. So far it looks like willie and his brother, mr and mrs okie and me and buckdoe. If anyone else wants to bring their boat up there and fish with us your welcome. We will all be there about six.

    I gave up fishing up there about 4 yr's ago. Truck got broke into at:
    Piasa
    Grafton
    Pierre Marquette
    Alton Marina
    & Maple Island

    As you can see, over an 7 yr's period I had to replace window, door locks & even an entire door. Even when I left it unlocked, they trashed it & cut the seats.

    Sorry, I'll stay closer to home. Never had a problem once at Flamm City, Platin Rock Boat Club or Truman.

    By the way, Manny & I put in at Flamm City last night. Level was at 7 ft and had no problems. The most shallow I saw on the river was right off the ramp @ 2.5 ft. Most of the channel was 5-9 ft all the way down to the Mississippi. Larger boats or taller trailers might find it uncomfortable ramping, but once out it would be fine..

    Sorry to hear that Tom, I do know that Alton Marina has security that patrols through there now...if that makes you feel any more comfortable! :big_smile:

    Somehow, I was told they won't need me for this overtime gig, so...that means Mrs River-Rat and I will be attending too! :big_smile: I just don't think I have her talked into the "all-nighter" business though, so we most likely will be pulling out a bit earlier than most of you other folks:roll_eyes:....although if I tell her this is a "dollar-tourney" she just might change her mind! She has a very competitive side to her! :crazy::big_smile::smile2:

    I was planning on attending when it was going to be at Flamm, but I've never had much luck up that way and it's a pretty good drive for me to haul my boat all the way up there to NOT catch fish....lol You hitting the river again tonight down this way Tom?

    Well, Kevin I'd love to put in at Flamm, but my boat isn't a flat bottom like Tom's and 2.5 foot of water would be damn near impossible for me to launch in...

    If the fish are biting I will stay out all night, if not I will be leaving about 11 or 12.

    GW...George Winter, gotcha...no I have a deep V boat and when the Meramec gets low I avoid it as much as possible. So when the river comes back Kevin I'm all for getting us out there and doing some fishing.
