    PM me if you are interested in joining me tonight. I'll bring the boat.

    I'm dying to get back out there. Unlike others on this board, I can't promise you any fish - but I did manage to get 6 this morning. Considering that the river is on a sharp drop and the wind is blowing from the south and I usually struggle, this was a good day for me. The biggest was 27lbs with the rest in the teens.

    Caught them in 20+ feet of water. I guess we need the night to get the shallow bite.

    Good luck ratman. I may go by myself as long as I got a cell phone number of another boat on the same stretch. Solo just makes things about 5x as hard.

    I'll give you a call if I pull the trigger. What's your time frame?

    I couldn't wrangle anyone up for this evening, but if someone wants to head out in the morning.......give me a shout.

    Nope. I'm trying to get through a bunch of work in hopes in freeing up some evenings this week.
