shouldn't be muddy... just high.. a day or 2 after the drop starts it clears up... as long as the rain is gone it will drop another 6-12 inches by tomorrow morning..

1-2 foot visability would be my guess!

Yea it's raining again, the radar is green, and the forecast calls for showers and T-storms overnight and into the morning. Gonna wait for the weekend :(

Oh and I prefer 10.5 on the Sandy right now, especially to get the springers holding ;)

Dang wish I would have seen this before, would more then love to go look for some nooks in a boat. Banking gets old after a while not saying I don't like banking it but always watching all the boats land fish after fish is killing me here lol.

Got out for a couple hours before work today. Some good takedowns, and one 5-6lb hatch that jumped and fought well, only to have the hook pop out at the bank before I could get a hand on her. Still a great way to start the week!

Enjoy! I would be more heartbroken if my little bro hadn't caught a 13lb keeper there over the weekend. I have good smoked steel in the fridge today already :)
