Me and Bigriver took a trip out on the river saturday and coundn't have picked a better weather day for February. Warm sun and hardly any wind, the temp was somewhere around 45, but the 37 degree water kept it cool. The fish apperently bit early, and you guessed it we didn't get there until later. We got there around 10 and talked to a couple of veterans that had been there since 7. They caught some gooduns before we got there, but we must have brought the bad luck with us because the bite seemed to have quit when we got there. We scratched out a 22 and an 18 before the day was over. All in all it wasn't too bad a day. Warm weather will be here before we know it and it'll be game time. Sharpen those hooks and get ready, I have a feeling that its going to be a great year.

I had the pleasure of being invited on a fishing trip with Mr. Gadget, himself on Saturday. I gladly accepted the invite and surely appreciate it. I had a ball. Crane hit the nail on the head about the weather, beautiful day. Little cool but nice. The U.S.S. Proline left the ramp sometime around 7am and was set up on a spot somewhere around 7:30. To my and BR's suprise we had good bites on every rod within minetes of putting them out. The first fish BR reeled in a nice 30lber. As soon as , the boat was set back up I had the pleasure of reeling in my very own 30lber(thanks BR!). Again, as soon as the boat was set up Br gets to reel in a pretty blue that weighed 58lbs. One more again about the time the boat was set up I had the pleasure of reeling in yet another 30lber. He must have been on the phone or something. Anyway I'm glad he let me have that one. We caught one more fish a few minetes after the boat was set up and I was able to get a 24lber to the boat. I know he was on the phone for that one.lol. At sometime around 9-9:30 the fish just turned off or we sore lipped all in that area one because we nevr had another bite. We did try a few more places but no luck. It was definitely a good 2 hours of catching. Again thanks BR, I enjoyed it. One more thing Im not sure where these fish had been but they were definetly not the typical bright white blues I normally see in 34 degree water temps from 55ft deep. They where all dark colored.

I have to say this about last weeks trip with BR. I was a little disappointed that he brought the "little" net because he didn't think we'd need it. I took that as a personal insult! Today I find out that BR and Roger went and this time BR didn't even bring a net:laugh1:. I feel a little better about it now. Come on BR we all know to carry the "big" net when Roger is in the boat. What where you thinking:dont-know:. The worst part is these guys fished way past 2 o'clock whats up with that?:Mad:I spent the day on Pickwick Lake and if anyone is wondering about bait you may want to hold off a little longer before driving down there. I put a little effort into it this morning but didnt get a bite from the skips.

A day in the Life of Captain Gadget aboard the infamous skiff the USS Proline
Yep quite a day. Captain Gadget was supposed to get to my house at 5 am. Since I had made it to sleep about 2:30 I was trying to get all the sleep I could and had set alarm for 4:30 and apparently in my stupor had made a decision to hit snooze a time or two. :sleepy:Well Gadget called me about 4:40 and was already sitting in my drive so I lept out of bed, got ready and off we went into the utter darkness. We first anchored on a submerged sandbar with about 10' water under the boat but some 50-60' water back behind. We ended up catching a 36# fish there and as we were floating back to get him we discovered we had ALMOST everything you need to catfish. A quick checklist would reveal an I-phone:phone:, an I-pod:musical-note:, a radio (complete with 70's music to drive me nuts if need arose):excruciating:, at least 10 different gauges on boat telling you about every function the boat has currently or could have within like the next two years:console:, two fish finders one even with weather:umbrella:, nice fishing rods:good:, rotten bait:bad:, sharp hooks:good:, fish grip:fingers-crossed:, but one thing was missing a DIP NET:nailbiting:. Later when wind was up and current was not too good we found like a 15' tall tree submerged and tried to anchor there and discovered something else missing a drift sock:arghh:. We ended up floating sideways and upstream for a while and was not able to fish it but in fairness not sure the drift sock would have made it that good but we will never know I guess. We got him in the boat okay and kept fishing. After another anchor or so we hung another one. We had thrown ball and were floating back when he came to top like he was dead. Looking at his head we thought we had a real problem looming. It ended up being okay since he was sick and had a big knot on his side. His mouth and head was like a 50 plus pound fish but body while long was more the thickness of a teen sized fish and he only weighed in at 34#. After a few more moves we caught another one about 10# and then the final one after a few more moves weighed in at 20#. It was a good day and I even made him fish overtime like 5 hours by making him stay to like 5 pm. Been a wile since I had been on water and felt good pulling in a couple of fish. Thanks Captain Gadget and congrats there Chris sounds like your day was okay as well. By the way nice DIP NET in the picture you posted.:Stars:

Congrats there Coach. Even for a young man taking a pic of yourself with that size fish is tough.
