    If you ever see a shaved head guy in a green smokercraft….say “hey”. I’m usually out 3 nights a week.

    3 nights per week? I don’t think I’ve been able to get there 3 times in the past 2 years!
    So, I’ll expect reports in my pm’s.

    I fish Rathbun couple times a week April thru Sept., mainly
    fishing for crappies and walleye. Last year water levels was
    high and I had terrible luck catching. Hope it is maintained better this year.

    I have a feeling the state is going to be begging the COE to keep the lake level at normal or below just because of that new resort. I also heard they plan some major erosion control.

    I get down there a few times. It’s about a 2 1/2 hour drive for me. Most of the time I’ll add an hour and head to the Miss
