    Well me and the wife made a mad dash to the river sunday evening...We didn't get in the water till around 330 and the water was real rough due to the cold front moving in and the 20 mile hour winds...So we braved the wind and made a dash down river with water splashing over the bow and my wife screaming that I should have brought the rain suits:eek:oooh:..I tried to drift but the wind was just to stout...So we dropped anchor and began fishing at 415 and by 445 we had a 45,35,25,20,and a 10lber in the boat...It was getting dark and I was out of bait and the wife was cold so we called it a day....I forgot the camera so we used the cell phone so the pic are not that good:sad2:...

    Sweet spot, huh?.....by the looks (dark blue) of that 45, it must have been shallow lets say 12-15ft?

    Sounds like a fun evening. Hope you have more of them like that.
    And I hope I can work that into some fish here below Pickwick like that.
