Back to Stoddard Bay

10:24 am CDT, Jun 22, 2013 | By Mark Hicks

We've made the run downriver to the Stoddard Bay area where we were assaulted by high winds, driving rain and 4-foot waves yesterday.

Tis a far better day today with a nice breeze, a slight chop and no rain at the moment. The run down is scenic. High wooded hills line the banks. This is not Mark Twain's muddy Mississippi up here in the north country.

We find Takahiro  Omori fishing what is known locally as "The Box." It's a riprap area in the middle of the river that blocks the river's flow. Omori has four in the box. He's slinging a shallow crankbait, his strong suit.
