    Had a 20 fish stringer today (CPR'ed the Big'uns) at Baldwin. :big_smile: 18 Blues between 4 and 17.5 lbs. one 5lb. Flathead and a 2 lb. Channel. Took an old friend and his brother-in-law. They both caught new PB's. Mike caught the 17 lb. 8 oz. and Steve (His Bro-in-law) caught an11 lb 12 oz. then a 12 lb 2 oz. about 20 minutes later Both said it was the best day of fishing they've ever experienced. I'm had a blast watchin' how excited they got! Forgot my darn camera AGAIN, but they had a camera phone. Supposed to send me some soon and I'll post 'em when I get 'em!:wink:

    Sounds like a really good day fishing and a great day on the water, looks like you caught a good mess of catfish looks like that will make a good fish fry, glad to hear fish was biting your way good luck to you on the rest of your fishing trips.

    I wanted to go fishing today, but the van decided to squeel... sounds like a pulley is messed up. So I had nothing to pull the boat today.. Oh well... more days will come.
