This is a couple guys from LeClaire Iowa. Just across the river and a little north of us here...
I saw one a guy near us here caught that took kuphalf of His pick up truck bed! It was HUGE!!!!!
Oh, Yes the current is very strong in most parts of the Mississippi River. Dangerously so.
When My step sone was about 15, Him and three of His froends were just off shore in a small tributary of the River, and two of the boys were pulled
under the water, and sadly drowned. It was a terrible experience for our Boy, but one that taught Him firsthand to respect the rivers here!!!
