    Launched at Moscow and again the ramp was perfect and the water clarity was about a foot. Fog was extremely heavy in the a.m. and had to follow the river bank to the damn but it was worth it. Cold as the dickens early but became warmer as the day progressed. Again it was fantastic fishing, we averaged around 50 to 70 fish apiece and limited out again with a great mess of Saugers 20 total. Fishing again with just a lime and orange lead head with a stinger hook and big minnow, no artificial baits to speak of, and no jigging, lower it down to the desired dept and let it lay, it didn't take long from 10 seconds to 30 seconds was the norm today. If you jigged the bait then you didn’t get a bite. As usual you have to sort through a lot of short fish but the rewards are worth it, a lot of action and full stringers after a few short hours of fishing, we left the river at 2:30 for the long ride home.
  2. What a great way to end the year. Nice job on the fish.

  3. Way to finish out the year Gamehog. I use to fish there often. I've got to get back down there sometime. Nice to see a report.

    Sounds like that ride down to the dam was well worth it.
