    Who's fishing this weekend??? I think I am going to give it a try Sunday but not sure where yet. I have a friend in town from northern Mo. and am going to try to get him a hog. Has anyone been catching anything lately? I fished the Crystal City down to Rush Island area 2 weekend ago with no luck. I think we will head north toward downtown. Anyone been out downtown lately?

    Swamp, I'll be back in town tomorrow. I'll get you your spare back this weekend my friend. I may try and hit the river as well if its going to be nice. I'd like to take my son Jack out and see if we can find some Channel Cats. I'll give you a call when I get in town.

    Sound good Chris, hope to see ya... we'll be ramping at Cuivre Island around 10:30am head up the slough for a while then drop back down and around to the channel side of the island and pull some crankbaits along the rip rap... my buddy has never done that, I have always caught fish pull'n cranks, just never know what you'll catch :smile2: ... going out to have some fun and enjoy the river.

    Make sure you give us a crappie report. I bet you could catch some walleye and sauger at the dam right now trolling cranks or jigging off the bottom.Mike and Chris I want details when you guys get back.

    Willie,
    I would like to see this spot too. I'll keep out of it, but am curious to see what kind of structure is holding fish this time of year.

    Couldn't find any crappie today John, water was down and we tried several places... did try out the secret 7 on the channels... water was 50 to 52 degrees and each time we through out with in 3 minutes we had bites... now our hookup ratio was terrible but it was still a blast. Check out Chris's report, he had an awesome day.

    I and a buddy of mine went out on the Mississippi today. We only had had a few hours to kill because we both had to work this evening. It was an awesome day for November. It's a shame this can't last until the spring.

    We ended up with six blues. Four in the 20's and two in the teens. Sorry I don't have exact weights but we fished out of his boat and he doesn't have any scales.

    All of the fish were caught on cut shad in 40-60 feet of water with hard current. He is sending me some pictures of the fish and I will post them when I get them.

    I hope everyone else had as good a weekend as we did.
