How to Get Away From the Fishing Crowds

Most of pool 13 is hard to get too, its a long run from Savana and Belview so a lot of wingdams don’t get hit much. I caught a limit of walleye over 8# on this wingdam last year. Then I went into the old army depot and caught some giant crappie. I didn’t see a boat all day. It’s just too far for me. I wished I lived in that area.
