VACATION HAS COME TO AN END SO I WILL BE BACK ON THE BOC......using all of your fishing experiences to get me thru these last few months! Had a great time at home and spent all of my time doing family activities, Yes fishing is a family activity!!:big_smile: I got to take the new boat out 4 times (excellent boat by the way) and caught fish on 3 out 4 of those trips. The Skunking come during the Cabelas Point Pleasant event, so that didn't work out so well, but it was a nice day on the water with my wife. The tournament went great and I met alot of real nice people. I did manage to win a couple of good door prizes so I can not complain. Other fishing trips were to small local lakes (Paint Creek/ Deer Creek) and yeilded some nice eating size channel cats. We caught 18 fish all together. I wish it could have turned out better, but it was enough to scratch the itch until I can devote some more time to it. Had a great time with the family. We went to the Columbus zoo and my daughter (2 years old) had the time of her life and tried to take multiple goat rides at the petting zoo...............not scared or shy that is for sure. All in all it was an excellent 2 weeks and I am looking forward to getting back to be with them for good. Glad to be back on here also, I know I have missed a great deal and need to catch up on even more!! Can't wait, take care and good luck fishing.
