    Yeah Max you know Im game, give me a yell and I will be there...
    Well the fishing wasnt that bad i guess, but the wind was though...I couldnt get out of the wind, i tried allday..The wind was blowing against the current, so it was pushing the boat backwards, we couldnt stay anchored...We caught 5 fish...3 blues. 2 channels. big fish was 10 pounds....but i feel like i have been in a 12 round fight. that wind and those waves beat the heck out of us...LOL..It was a rough day..i would say 3 foot waves allday easily..But it is always nice to get out on the water..I would do it again, if that tells ya anything

    Matt good to see you on the water.That winds where a bear. I never even put a cat pole out.I went to the backwaters and pulled boards with shad. Caught 3 stripers biggest around 9lbs.Hope to get back out this afternoon if not in the morning.Did you see any of the barges going downriver.They had water going everywhere from the spray.One caption told me it was tough to get around some of the bends of the river.See you on the water.
