I had a lot to get caught up on today , only got 3 hours in this afternoon . River is definitely out of it's banks everywhere I checked with zero visibility . Gauges still non functional as is personal thermometer .

Basically just fished a couple creekmouths and a few shoreline related slack/slow spots . I used a 1/8 oz jig with a 3 inch swimbait everywhere . I just swam it slow and steady as close to the bottom as possible with minimal bottom contact .

One smallmouth in a foam covered slack spot between two big flooded trees . It was holding next to a clump of flooded brush .

One rockbass from behind a tree laying from shore out to the current seam . It was holding right where the branches started coming from the trunk .

Two walleyes laying on the downstream side of a bar that dropped from about 6-8 inches to about two feet on a moderate slope at a creekmouth .

With the warmer air temps it's always good to be able to take advantage of them in January .

Location: Not quite over the hill, but has a breathtaking view from the lofty perch.

You on shore Norm or wading? Either way your hard core on that flowing water.

on shore, way too dangerous to wade
