A buddy and I are looking to plan a fishing trip in mid-April of next year. I understand it is not the best time of the year to plan a fishing trip but I work overseas and we have to take what we can get. We are looking for a place with some good fishing for that time of year. I live in Wisconsin and he lives in Oklahoma, so preferably some place down south, yet within driving distance for both of us. Within driving distance is like 10-12 hours. I am thinking somewhere along the Mississippi River, possibly north or south of St. Louis. Any ideas????
