I am here also.  In the very southeast corner.

Chances are you are pulling your hair out like me waiting to get the boat back out.  I am a lot close than you are I bet. :)

I'm a Nebraskan that loves to fish your wonderful state.  We fish 3 mile, 12 mile, Green Valley.  Looking forward to trying a few more of your western county lakes.  I lived in Iowa for 7 years and cut my teeth on some of the best watersheds in the country.

GO BIG RED

I am in the east but I love 3 mile.  Very nice lake and good quality fish.  Not too many dinks that I have come across.   Hope to be making more trips that way in the near future.

I am a Mississippi river guy too.  I am all the way down on Pool 19 though.  We have some awesome bass fishing on the big river and can't wait for the big show to come fish my pool this summer.  It's gonna be a blast.

I met a couple of the elite series guys down here prefishing last summer already and they seem like some real cool guys.

Another Iowa guy here too although in the S.C. part of the state.  RWhusker, a buddy of mine started a tournament series that includes hitting 3 mile twice, let me know if you have any interest.  

Stupid ice :'(

and okoboji

I am from Nebraska, but I love to fish West Lake Okoboji.  Usually make it up there a couple of times a year.

I do not live in Iowa, but if there were no trees behind my house I could see it from my deck. I live just across the Mississippi River in Illinois.

I see there are a lot of guys here from Pool 19. As close as I live to that pool I have not been on it. A guy I know runs the ABA tournies down there and has invited me down a bunch of times, but I have yet to make it. Maybe I can get down there for some fun fishing this year. Of course, I have no clue where anything is down there.

JT shoot me a line any time and I will be more than happy to tag along with you on Pool 19.  I am out on it a couple days a week for sure.  MOF I'll be out in it here real soon.  I am gonna go visit my local home lake tonight.  Things are really starting to open up here in southeast Iowa.  Ice is gone and its time for the boats. :)

Thanks for the offer.

I half way thought about fishing that Stren Tourney down there in July, but I am not sure if I will have time.

This warmer weather in this area sure is nice. The snow is just about all gone from my yard. Another day and it will be for sure.

What lake was that you fished, only thing I can think of in that neck of the woods is Pollmiller Pond that one lake out by Donnelson. Did you do any good?

I went today on the river with no luck. Lot of ice still floating around in the harbor. Only a small area where theres some rocks was open, I thought there'd be at least one in there though. Those rocks should have absorbed enough sunlight to warm the water just a little and bring em in. Maybe a little more warm weather and I can start to catch em.

Yes I fished P last night. I am itching to get back on the river but I am waiting for the ice chuncks to end, I don't care for them so much. I got 5 bites last night just FYI.

I take it you live close to me? Nobody knows about P. :)

Yea, I live in Burlington. I wrote earlier on this thread about possibly fishing with you this spring to prep. for non-boater tourney. I just have to get a new truck so I can fish most days after work. Going looking this weekend so hopefully I'll be fishing for more than 30 mins by mid-week next week.

Yeah sorry, my mistake, I remembered it after the fact! ::) I have an open spot in the back of my boat a lot of times so just get ahold of me. Like I said I don't fish too many tournaments but I fish almost every day. We were out again tonight with a buddy from Muscatine at P and got into a few fish again. They are starting to come around. :)
