Heya Bill,

Got out for great paddle Thursday. Was checking out a the work Andy is doing to the old Palisades Yacht Club. Looks like it'll be deep enough for the Queen Mary. Can't wait to try out the "Driftwood Bar and Grill" this summer.

Always great to be able to kayak to a bar.

News Release From BoatUS

TowBoatUS Takes Bassmaster Classic Champion's Boat to the "Finish Line"

LAKE CONROE, Texas, April 15, 2017 – When Jordan Lee, the winner of the 2017 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods needed a hand, TowBoatUS was there. On Sunday, Lee was crowned the winner of “the world championship of fishing,” but not before he had to ask the 24-hour on water assistance service, TowBoatUS Lake Conroe, for help in getting his disabled boat to the final weigh-in on time.

As the morning of the third and final day of the tournament unfolded, a glitch in Lee’s outboard made it impossible for him to get his boat on plane. Whether he had struck an underwater object or some other mishap was to blame, he suddenly was unable to chase fish across the 21,000-acre lake. Luckily, he was near the honey hole he was trying to reach. He fished it hard, bringing in an incredible 27-pound, 4-ounce, five-fish limit for the day, or nearly half of his winning three-day total of 56 pounds, 10 ounces.

However, with a dead boat in the water, getting to the final weigh-in was going to require a “Plan B.” After consulting with tournament officials, Lee, who is a BoatUS member with an annual TowBoatUS Unlimited Freshwater Towing Plan, was able to hop on a spectator boat while TowBoatUS Lake Conroe retrieved his boat. After a short tow to the launch ramp, Lee’s rig was quickly loaded on a trailer and brought to weigh-in, just in time for the 25-year old angler to claim his title – his first professional tournament win with B.A.S.S.

The bass fishing phenom, who worked his way up from the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series tour to world champion in less than four years, collected $300,000 for his win. The GEICO Bassmaster Classic paid out more than $1 million to the 52 competitors in the event, which drew a total attendance of more than 115,000 to the various venues in Houston and on Lake Conroe.

Weigh-ins were held in Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, each day of competition, March 24-26. Lee set new Classic records for the greatest comebacks, rising from 37th the first day to 15th on Day 2 and then to first.

“For Jordan Lee and the 70,000 other boaters who call us for assistance each year, this is how we make their boating better everyday,” said BoatUS Vice President of Towing Services Adam Wheeler.

Much like a reliable auto club for boaters, BoatUS offers TowBoatUS on-water Unlimited Towing Membership Plans for freshwater boaters and anglers for just $72 a year, which includes BoatUS membership. For saltwater boaters the price is $149. On-water tows, soft ungroundings, battery jumpstarts and fuel drop offs are included and there are no deductibles. The plans are good for any boat that is owned, rented or borrowed, and the TowBoatUS fleet is the largest in the nation with 605 red response vessels. Go to BoatUS.com/towing for more.

Mississippi River Reading

Historian Writes About Past And Future Efforts At River Control........


Jim Barnett is a historian and author from Natchez, and he has spent several decades studying the Native Americans that settled along the Mississippi River.  While researching the tribes, Barnett became curious about the modern management of the river.


Barnett's latest book, Beyond Control:  The Mississippi River's New Channel to the Gulf of Mexico, takes a look at the fight to control the Mississippi River from when it was first settled, to contemporary times.


Barnett says that the book doesn't just look back into the past, but also forward to the future.  He adds that once the lands bordering the river were settled, levees went up to protect those properties, and we want the river to stay in it's designated channel.  The river has other ideas, as it's course changes are inevitable........

Mississippi River History

A Look Back At The Flood of 1927........


The big news in 1927 was the Mississippi River Flood of 1927, which was the most destructive river flood in the history of the United States.


During the fall of 1926, extreme weather raced across the plains states to the Ohio River Valley, causing levees to begin breaking in the lower Mississippi River Valley during March of 1927.  The levee breaches continues through May.  The floodwaters did not completely drain until the end of summer.


All told, some 27,000 square miles of land were covered by water.  Around 637,000 people became homeless, and between 250 and 1,000 people died.  Direct property losses ended up between $250 and $500 million.  When indirect losses were figured in, that figure crept up to about $1 billion........

    St. Louis District - Weekly Navigation Channel Condition





Mississippi River

A submerged obstruction has been reported in the vicinity of Mile 190.5, LDB, just outside of the navigation channel and directly up river of the I-270 Bridge. A M/V reported struck this obstruction with a 9-foot draft with the St. Louis Gauge at 10.7 on December 7, 2016. A nun buoy has been set channelward of the obstruction. Mariners are advised to navigate in the center of the channel and avoid overtaking or passing in the vicinity of the bridge.


Illinois River

Meredosia Bridge Replacement; To support steel erection, a crane and work barge will encroach into the navigation channel approximately 145 feet from the new upstream left descending pier. A resulting 411 foot horizontal clearance will be maintained daily Monday to Saturday, from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. At night the horizontal clearance will increase to 481 feet. For further information, mariners may contact the onsite workboat M/V BRIAN BRUNDICK via VHF-FM Channels 13 or 16 or by phone at (314) 952-4759.


Missouri River

Washington Bridge Replacement; At times horizontal clearance in the main channel span may be reduced to 350 feet due to pier construction. The workplant will move on 30 minute advance notice by contacting M/V PIASA via VHF-FM Channels 13 or 16.

Outgoing St. Louis Mayor's Legacy Lays Along The Mississippi River........


As St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay wraps up his 16 years of service to St. Louis City, the State of Missouri, and the Mississippi River Valley, his legacy will live on along the length of the river.


Slay was the founding mayor of the Mississippi River Cities & Towns Initiative, which is an association of 75 cities within the 10 states along the Mississippi River.  The MRCTI was founded in 2012, and is intended to deal with issues surrounding the Mississippi River, including flooding, droughts, and pollution.


Last month, Mayor Slay was in Washington D.C. to release the MRCTI's plans for restoring the natural and built infrastructure of the Mississippi River Corridor.  Slay's efforts have ended up benefitting cities from St. Paul, Minnesota to Gretna, Louisiana........

Feasibility Study Looks At New Local River Port........


Some members of the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce recently developed a plan for conducting a feasibility study, which would look at whether an intermodal/multimodal Port Authority could be established in central Missouri.


The feasibility study would determine if a port would be not only financially, but functionally viable.  Randy Allen, President of the Chamber of Commerce said that they believe that there is a need for an intermodal river port between St. Louis and Kansas City.


Allen added that they are hoping that the feasibility study would be carried out while the Missouri Department of Transportation conducts a statewide study to determine the economic benefits of all Missouri and Mississippi River ports........

Pest Destroying Wetlands Grass Identified........


After several weeks of meeting with scientists around the globe, the Louisiana State University recently announced that they have determined what mysterious pest has been destroying thousands of acres of wetlands grass in Louisiana.


On Thursday, officials announced that the nipponaclerda biwakoensis, an invasive type of scale native to China and Japan has decimated large patches of roseau cane, a tall grass that is considered to be crucial for fish and bird habitat, as well as adding stability to the rapidly eroding delta.


Damage to the roseau cane is worst in the far southern reaches of Plaquemines Parrish, including the Pass a Loutre Wildlife Management Area, where around 80% of the preserve's 110,000 acres have been affected by the invasive insect........

Fatal 2016 Accident A Reminder For Sober Boating........


Last August, 49 year old Richard Prince and passenger, 40 year old Bradley Dunphy were killed when Prince's 44 foot MTI catamaran flipped while making a high speed run on the Lake of the Ozarks.


While most reports focused on the speeds Prince was running the catamaran, or the conditions on the water, it seems that the most likely cause of the accident was overlooked, Prince's blood alcohol level.


The toxicology report released by the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Laboratory Division revealed that both men aboard the Catamaran were well over the legal blood alcohol limit for operating the boat........
