    12/31...Well woke up at 5am saw the fog and went back to sleep. Finally dragged my tail out of bed around 7am and got to db around 8am. Saw redcat was there and called him, he set his net while I was launching my boat. Got to the net about 25 min later and started getting it in. Well about 40 min later I had removed 24 shads and gave 14 away to others having trouble with bait. Well had a pretty good day, ended up with 9 fish and 5 over 30. The biggest was 44, and the stinky thing is my knap sack got wett on sat so when my camera died I was unable to get pics of last 2 fish. They were 37 and 35 on a double hook up on last hole of day. The 5 fish weighed 44, 34,30,37, and 35. The rest were 12 to 20... Thanks lizard for help on the pic of the 30..... Oh and not a word of where we were ... Over all not too bad of a day. :eek:oooh:

    1/1... Only one fish all day a dinky 27lber and with the winds 17mph+ only fished half a day... Oh well better luck next time..

    Good to see you on here Mike! Looks like you've been slaying the fish recently.
