    Willie, Russ and I got skunked big time last night. we went through lock 27 pretty fast and with Russ's wonderful boat blasted to the grainery's at over 40 miles a hour. Just a few minor bites and we stayed out untill about 3 am. On the way back we had a real strong oder of a skunk just to rub our nose in it about our skunk. Really nice night out. Were going to really nail them tonight.:big_smile:

    i got skunked myself, on catfish at least. i fished the meramec from sundown till sun up, ended with 2 gar and 4 turtles. one of the turtles is my new pb turtle. it was a snapper that was an easy 30 pounds plus. this guy was huge and pissed off. once i got him on shore he actually tried to run me down......lol.

    nice fish okie, its nice to see something without a shell.....lol

    Lots of skunk going around this past week. I look at it as a good thing as it means we are that much closer to the post spawn feeding frenzy!!

    Glad you all had a nice SAFE night. I've been wanting to fish the grain terminal some time. I'll get to it sometime this summer. I can see it every morning on my way to work. There has been more than one morning when I see the grain dust cloud in the air (meaning they are loading grain) that it is all I can do to keep from turning the truck around to head back for the boat...and playing hookie.

    tough night indeed.... I just knew we would find fish in those spots.. Still a great night... Got to fish with Russ & Pooper.. Russ has one heck of a set up on his boat...Not to mention the info i soak up from them guys.. Those kitties are in trouble once the floater hit the water again

    Spawn has been over for a few weeks now....just need the water temp and the river levels to stop fluctuating up and down...That's what's killing the bite here lately....
