    Anyone who is in the springfield area, and would like to do some fishing let me know. There is also a monthly buddy tourney. The next tournament is July 18th. For anyone who is interested and didnt know.

    The odds arent nearly as good as going to the mississippi, but I have done it and seen it done from the bank.

    I have heard of two blues total being caught from the bank. The flatties want some cover coming out of deep water. He caught his at the green pipe. There are a couple of spots I will tell you tom madonia park and cotton hill for flatties. Have also seen a couple of flatheads pulled out by lindsay bridge in shad nets and on rod and reel. Pulled a 15 pd fish out with my net and saw two others yesterday so they are middle depth in the rocks right now. If anyone wants to go fishing let me know I will be out there anyways. YOU KNOW JOHN???? I have seen that big fish picture before
