    Some of you may have already heard but last weekend I was fishing a tournament at Milford and to make a long story short my boat ended up capsizing. I lost everything that I owned that had to due with catfishing. Yesterday Catfish Fever, Catfish Quiver, and Mandingo spent their Saturday with me trying to snag some poles that I lost. I just want everyone to know how good of guys we really have on this site and I want to personally thank you three for the time you spent trying to recover my stuff.

    cj.i know you woulda did it for me and like jim and gerald said,we would have done it for them.i think we still have a good shot at getting more back once the water goes down but who knows when that wil be.i wish my neck felt a lil better so i could have swam and dove a little longer.kinda hard to swim with a stiff neck:smile2:

    Very sorry to hear that CJ, and glad to hear you're alright. I had no idea that happened. I'm glad to hear you were able to get atleast some of your stuff back too. Thanks for doing that Jim, Jerald, and Caleb.

    CJ, I did not hear about it till know. If there is anything I can do to help you, you have my number. Just remember equipment can be replaced but a life can not.

    I posted some pics in the Success at Milford Lake thread on Kansas talk, some are funny:roll_eyes::smile2:. I did show CJ with his recovered poles. J.J. if you did come and dive, you'd have been subject to the same embarrasing pictures as CJ and Caleb:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    I didn't realize that was what you were doing Saturday when I called you Jim. I heard you mention you were with Caleb looking for gear at timber creek before my phone died. I was trying to figure out how you all lost gear at the boat ramp?? If I had known the what you were doing I would have come over and helped ya all for sure. I will look over the spot with the SI and see if I can locate anything next weekend. Glad you are OK CJ.

    I couldnt resist it.:tounge_out:Sorry Tom.:0a33: But back to the original topic, CJ Im glad that you are okay and I hope that you can recover more of your gear. I bet that was scary as he!!. That wind was just crazy and showed no mercy. Like the others said everything is replaceable except you!
