    sounds like a good day for ya jbo. fished the wing dam saturday morning. nothing happening. no even down by the creek mouth from talking to an old timer. might hit pike dam in the morning and go up to wing dam later friday. good fish'n.
     
  4. Hit the dam twice last week. They had the middle 2 gates roaring causing a strong back current. I had trouble holding 50' out w/ 1.5 oz sinker. Havent been down in the past few days, hopefully they have closed the gates a little or atleast evened them out. There was a good amount of guys fishing the rock bar below the pier but didn't see them catch much, current had to be crazy up there. Good luck if ya get out.

    yea, sounds about right. last summer towards end of july, fished about 100 yards or so below the pier for catfish. had some strikes, but landed only two good chanels around 28". didn't fish again till mid september. wife thought i was crazy, and fished thru the winter. mostly saturdays, and some sundays. didn't make it there last week...finding my gut feeling when i wake up is paying off. will get there this weekend between rain bursts. also gonna wade down in costonia, and hit the wing dam there. guy i work with says a fellow told him he was hitting musky trolling between wing dam and bridge with a large jerk bait. but like my hat says, "not all fisherman are liars, but a lot of liars fish. be good, good fish'n
