Title: Mississippi River Pool 13 Backwaters. Major Flood equals Awesome Fishing
Post by: GotstaFish on June 20, 2008, 10:23:17 AM
Here are a few pics from the 150+ fish we caught last weekend. Fishing is phenominal at the moment despite the major flooding. Sunday we launched the boat from a gravel road since all the ramps within 100 miles are closed and the River has been closed to traffic. All fish were between 2-5 pounds and we all had bloody thumbs by the time we were done.  ;D
