    Man, I can't believe you got up that early this morning. I didn't get to bed until 5am by the time I took a shower and got a snack.

    Joe, the place we were fishing, there was a sign on the left side of the river in a tree or on a pole that had 60 on it. We may not have been in the right place.

    yes we do have a lot of them around here on that highway. you were only 10 miles from the lock where you were at. i will mark the trees around the holes for you. and that way they will be a little easier to locate. if you guys want maybe we can meet here on saturday like i talked about and do a fishing thing. everyone put i $5 for largest fish and do a little mini tourney if you want. dosent look like any are going to be donw at lock 1 like they said they were. but this is up to you guys let em know something. i am game for anything. ok

    If you are saying the place we fished was 10 miles from the lock, we probably went 5 more miles past that looking. Was that not the place? We should have gotten there earlier so we could see. I'm not sure about this weekend. I'll let you know.

    so far the biggest catfish I caught there was a 21# blue, right there at the ramp bankfishing. I sometimes wonder why I bought a boat. I am sure eventually it will pay off but hasnt yet.
