    I have promised my daughter that when she turned 10 she could start fishing on the river with me and even in a tour.. Man is she a trooper. Shes more of a fisherman than me bro. We had 2 fish in the boat when the lightning started around 9:30 we went to the ramp to sit it out. She didnt want to. Over ruled by dad. Told her 15 min without lightning we would go back out. Well finally at 10:30 lightning stopped. Went back out and caught 10 more fish in the next hour. Wound up with 46-49 pounds. 18# big fish had 6 in the box on the way back in and before we got to the ramp asked how many fish for weigh in. Glad I did because I musta missed it in the meeting. It was 4 fish tourn. wound up in 2nd place. The guy who won it had 54#s I believe. With a beautiful 39#something flatty. Didnt take any pics sorry guys. Salmonid did as he was running the tour. I couldnt get a picture to turn out. Maybe I can get him to post it on here for me. Allison baby girl happy birthday and I love you. Thanks for going with me. Cant wait till the next one. Love dad.
