    I was just wondering what everyone is going to do this weekend. There has been some rain this past week around the state and I for one have a high and muddy river. Don't know exactly what I will do. I just checked the river stage at Black Rock for Black River and it's right at 10'. This time last week it was less than 2'. White don't look to bad and I might fish there. I could put in and fish the Strawberry but it's a small river and my 16' flatbottom would have difficulity getting around. I may have to skip fishing this weekend and just work on my boat some more. What about you?

    Terry that high water sure sounds good! It might be worth investigating since its on a rise. My boat is still out as they are waiting on one switch to come in. It had crossed my mind to go get it and take it back when the switch comes in but that would be another 80 miles just to take it out once. They should have it done by wednesday and hopefully it'll be ready for friday! Work, work, and more work for the weekend......

    I'm taking my son and a friend fishing at Joe Pool lake here in Texas Saturday night.
    It's been 2 yrs since I've fished with my son.

    Between the heat and the current shape of my back I'll probably lay around in the air conditioning and eat pain pills.

    My son and I will be going to Reelfoot on Sunday (we both work Saturday). Unless the winds keeps ripping like it has all week, then we'll bank fish the Mississippi.

    Fishing the Mighty Missouri tonight, all day tommorrow, and tommorrow night. Been bait fishing the past couple nights, and getting the rigs ready. Pretty excited, I am not much of a catfisherman. I have grown up bass fishing tournaments and doing crappie fishing when the spawn is on. This will be my first true catfishing experience besides setting trot lines. Been hearing of people catching alot of big fish up here. 40 + pounders are commonly hear of. Wish me luck, hopefully something big hits

    Still putting new carpet in the boat. Will have the front and middle finished by noon. Bro in law coming over later. We're going to hit Crown Lake at Horseshoe Bend again tonight. He lost a new rod and reel there 2 weeks ago. He still hoping he can accidently snag the line. The rod shot off the deck of the boat like an arrow shot from a bow. I got to give him one of those "I told you so". I'd been telling to loosen up on the drag or let it free wheel. Guess he'll listen now.

    I changed out my starter this afternoon and almost melted down doing it. The boat is hooked up to my Bronco right now and the water jugs are in the freezer. I just may give Black River a try early in the monring. I need to run over to the ramp and look it over. The rise is supposed to peak tomorrow morning and then began a slow fall.

    Robbie, the rise in the White is coming from the Black. I crossed the White at Batesville around noon and it's low and clear.
