    Here is a picture of Dink's blue cat he caught yesterday. By the way he corrected me today.:roll_eyes: I incorrectly stated it weighed 85 pounds.:eek:oooh: It actually weighed 89 pounds. I was holding the the fish and the scales. I guess I couldn't see straight!:smile2:

    Dang it! I hate the fact that you had to bring this to our attention Chris!! Because of this information and the fishing report given to you by Sir Dink, I am afraid I once again am coming out of "winter retirement" to chase those brutes again before the frost is gone! :roll_eyes::smile2::smile2::smile2:

    After all the luck I've had here in recent weeks, you know loosing a $300 prop and a rod and reel, I had vowed to call it quits for a while, but alas I have given into my addiction and am hitting the river very very soon. :embarassed:


    I CAN'T WAIT!!!! I NEED I NEED I NEED I NEED​

    Bill, I know what you mean. Seeing and holding that fish gave me the fever really bad. However, it is coldddddd out there! If I had a set up like Dink's I'd be out there a couple times a week. Right now I think I am going to wait until warmer weather.

    By the way that fish was released and it swam away fine.
