The crappie and catfish are biting good. Catching crappie in 6 to 10 foot of water on jigs and minnows on brush or any other structure you can find. Catfish are being caught with lots of different stinky things, my preference is sonnys stink bait. The hot fall bite is right around the corner. We have several days available in September but October and November are getting very booked up so call now to book your trip. 618-472-4763

Crappie are biting good. Been fishing brush and stumps in 8' to 12' foot of water. Been using jigs on windy days and minnows under a slip float on calm days. 


Channel cats are biting very good. Fishing the rocks or brush in 3' to 12' foot of water. Using sonnys super sticky. 


Flathead catfish are going good. We have been hoggin and have been finding anywhere from 5 to 20+ fish per day with an average weight in the upper 30's to low 40's with several over 50lbs.

There are still fish to be caught in the bushes but today we went out to deeper water and caught them pretty good. We fished jigs 8' to 14' deep in 10' to 16' foot of water.

Crappie are still going strong in the bushes. It hasn't been great with some slower ?days but we have been getting a nice mess almost every day with a lot of really good fish. We are fishing 18" to 36" deep in the buck brush.



We have had a couple of last minute cancellations for this coming Friday May 26th and Monday May 29th. Call Nick at 618-472-4763 to book.  



Catfish time is also right around the corner and we are booking up fast. Call us now to get in on the best catfishing you can imagine!
