Mississippi River Pool 5, Alma

Found jumbo perch, large crappie, and nice gills in 4-6' of water. Tried for flatheads one night, but had bad luck (someone beat me to where I wanted to set up, backup spot got both anchors stuck in the underwater logjam resulting in the loss of one anchor). Filleted my "bait" of 8" gills to salvage part of the night.

Targeted flatheads for the first time last Friday evening tried with live suckers and nightcrawlers with no success saw a very spectacular lightning show that was pretty cool DW check your p.m.
Bringing my wife and daughters over for 2 days of fishing and exploring, starting Wednesday. Has anyone been catching much? We don't plan on keeping much and are willing to fish anything that'll bite. Any info would be appreciated.

The water level has dropped a lot and is in good shape. Getting a bunch of northern pike, sauger, a few walleyes, and the bluegills just moved in. And of course, sheephead. Been a very good bite this week and should stay good for awhile

The water is dropping now and I expect the gates to go in tomorrow or Thursday. With the water warming and baitfish around, I think the fishing will pick up fairly quick and keep getting better the rest of the month.

Nice day to be out. It was one perch caught then two suckers.....never seen so many suckers. Most boats I have seen on the water as well as people on the float so far this year. Current was stronger then it has been and Corp of Engineers anchored a huge barge along the wall next to the lock that took out that area for fishing.
