Finally got to go to Weldon Springs yesterday. the ice was gone from the river and very little left inside the trail dikes. Went to usual bait hole and all I got was drum from 3 to about 9 inches long so I went fishing with drum. You know when life gives you lemons. In this case it proved to be right. I caught about a 8 pounder in the first 5 minutes. Went on to catch 9 fish total. Caught one more a little over 8 and the rest from 1 1/2 to 5 lbs. I left a couple of places cause we got a tourny down there Sunday morning and I didnt want to hook any more of them than I already had. It was a very enjoyable day on the Mo.
