*******BREAKING NEWS******* SANTEE CREW "SMACKSDOWN" MONTY CREW THREAT!!! First off I have been up for almost 50 something hours and I am still rocking back and forth from.....................NOT the waves, running to get that rod! "Smackdown Fish On" --Pop Pop (reps to ya' bro!) I along with Bearfrog1 and Smokkin99 put the "kitty whippin" on the Santee cats Saturday night. From 9pm to 3am we boated some real WINNERS!!!! Congratulations is in order to MR. Alex L.,(Smokkin99), who, for the SECOND time this year got a "GRANDSLAM" ! A channel, Blue and Flattie on the same trip!! The channel was nice 10lbs. the blue was nicer 38lbs. and the Flattie..............WELL BRAVO!!! 42lbs. It was absolutely beautiful! see pics below. Bearfrog1, we are glad you are still with us bro! I am going to let that story tell itself over the next 30 post by us three! :crazy::embarassed:oooh: Get my drift? Jonathan(bf1) told me no less than 62 times on the phone last week he wanted a flattie, not to mention the 378 pm's that always seemed to elude to "I really want to catch a flattie". I will need some professional counselling (Pop Pop) to get that "haunting phrase" out of my head. I now know, that posting pictures of some of the nicer flat's I have been blessed to meet over the years gives "SOME" people the impression I know a secret or two about flatheads. oooh: The pressure was ON! We had a blast! Bearfrog1 got his flattie and some............... I mean have you ever thought you were seeing shad break the top of the water and sneak up real quite to throw your net..................................and 10,000,000 2-6lbs mullet EXPLODE straight up in the air? I am sure I wet my pants! They came flying into the boat, hit the boat, bounced off the boat and I am quite sure that Smokkin99 will NEVER sing bass again or have anymore kids!oooh: OUCH!! He turned a nice shad of "PALE" and squeaked a shrill #*^ $! *^)$!!!! Sorry Bro, that was hillarious!! :smile2: This trip was just down right fun! I encourage everyone to go fishing with brothers you really don't know. I have made two, great, new friends and memories that will NEVER be forgotten. Sorry Bro, that was funny! Bearfrog1, you are "one of a kind" and your generosity made it all possible. Nice boat, can I have that motor.....PLEEEEEEEEEEASE? Oh yeah, and next time wear lots of warm clothes so you don't have to curl up around the heater.:wink: That was, and probably will ALWAYS be, the most expensive heat bill EVER!!! 15 minutes of warmth for 6k. Hmmm? That's $400 per minute,oooh: 900 seconds at $6.67 a second, oooh: And that's not to mention the "life threatning" part, don't worry I will be ok!:smile2: Alex and I were worried about you for a minute there! Glad U OK!! I will tell no more for now so the other two "STOOGES" can chime in. One more thing, EVERYONE make plans to attend a gathering! Let's make this Ga/Sc/Ala./Fla..Ak(?) HI(?).......etc. the BOMB DIGGITY!! I"M THERE! P.S. Jim, Just a thought how much did the "cat rod eating jeep" cost ya? 6k? Brothers, we might ought to keep those two seperated? oooh::smile2: GLAD YOU BOTH OK!! There were more fish but I was only able to take these few pics, the action was fast! Wear your cup! :smile2:---Sunbird, I'm going to sleep now!
