    I'm hoping to make it there soon. Hopefully to test out my "new" boat. Still praying that my old motor will work.

    fishgeek, i hope your old motor runs good for you. been out catching nightcrawler and it nasty out there. a buddy of mine will be here in a few hours to head up to salaimonie to fish the whole day. we sett day up awhile back to arrange work day off, hope all the rain turned on the cats. i've got a boat/motor and put a fishfinder on it in the spring, cant wait to see what the old spots that i've hooked alot of cats in, looks like. never used one on salaimonie, but i loved it this spring down south on vacation. i'll always use one from now on and i hope it finds us the cats today. i'll post here late today on how it went.

    it was a nasty day on the lake, did catch a limit of small crappie for cut bait to freeze for this summer. 1 channel cat that was it. did get out alittle to look around with my depthfinder. whole new ball game with one of those. we didnt see another boat all day. looked at the mississinewa river as i crossed it in marion. it was mean looking, l mite fish the bank since i have some private ground where theres a channel that leaves the main river and when it floods the cats go back into it, got bait need cats. but this cool weather it might be the same as today.

    i know that we are ready for the rain to quit so we can get back out and finish up with beans. only have 500 acres left and we can do that in 2 days. we would have been done by now. but i guess the good thing is is that i get to go fishing on the rainy days
