    Like some other I just saw this, well here it's not really to good. if you find a place to go it's usually moss covered. And I've found at local lakes if you can get to the water, it's so shallow ....... I go to the pond out back!

    Rats Moody....need to get your hammer and tin of nails out and get busy puttn her back together!... seriously, damn shame your spot got ruined . I sure wish another place works out for you..The lakes that have a pier here put them in not so good spots. I hate having to "accept" where I can go fishing. really need to figger out this boat thing. I want to get back out where I can catch the fish I wanna catch, not whats swimming around the dock in 3 ft of water.

    Hey duge,
    Are there any paylakes where you are? There's a bunch around here and that's where I go. It"s monster catfish catch/release, but they have jackpots you can win, makes it interesting.

    Have you called the state Centers For Independent Living or Parks and Recreation? And hope you don't mind me deleting your other post as they're the same basically.

    Seems it's State Parks in Iowa. A quick search came up with this place.

    http://www.iowadnr.gov/parks/state_park_list/beeds.html Try calling there number and asking if they have a list or better website to find these places.

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    Are you anywhere near Lake Michigan? I know a few states chapters of NSCIA and the DAV have boat trips out to fish. Might check if there's a dock up there too. No joke, you can even eat a fish or two a year without dying of toxic fish syndrome. Yea, when I was a kid we went down to Zion State Park in Illinois and the biggies there then were the dunes and the afternoon dead fish washing up onto the shore.
