This weekend I am hitting the Mississippi in search of some good fishing. I would like to stay south of the Downtowns, but not too far south, maybe near 494. Does anyone have any advice? Any good launches?
Well yes! Sounds like the hwy 494 launch will work perfect for you. I'd suggest hitting the many Wing Dams in that area along the river. Crawlers in various applications have been putting a LOT of nice fish in the boats down there recently!
