    We had a blast visiting Bud and Bobbie. And yes I went out in the boat. :smile2: But it did not want to crank a few times. The battery was weak. We were close to the bank. So Newton and Bud had to paddle us closer. All of a sudden Newton jumped out of the boat and pulled us on. Pheww, Panic attack was fixing to kick in. Slow deep breaths I tell ya. :crazy: But i did enjoy the relaxation. Of course they went to get another battery and a charger for the weak one.
    More stories to come and more photos.

    Rickey had a wonderful time. He seen that Bobbie was catching her kittys with stink bait. So of course he wanted to try some. He hooked the first one, He was so excited. He was reeling fast and yelling "I got one, I got one!" And of course he did the same on the second one. We had to tell him to slow down. But to see his eyes light up and that big smile on his little face, That was awesome. Thats one memory I will never for get and I am sure he won't either.

    We had a wonderful time in Texas. Thanks to Bud & Bobbie. I guess being around Johnnie the last two years at Degray has rubbed off on me. Because the first thing I discovered after getting there and setting up camp was that I forgot the tent poles. Somehow they did not get put back in the bag at Degray 3.

    But not all was lost! Bud & Bobbie offered us to stay in their Bed & breakfast inn(camper). It was nice , only now I have to go buy a camper, It spoiled my wife!:crazy:

    Sunday Morning Bobbie fixed a darn good breakfast with scrambled eggs, Bacon, and fried taters! Man that made for a better trip home!:big_smile:

    Although we did not catch anything on the jugs other than one little cat, and we had set out a trotline with soap. But someone cut the line and we lost whatever might have been on it!

    Bobbie was Kind enough to give us a big laugh at her expense also. It was hilarious to see her squell and look like she was going to fall off the back of the boat when the catfish flounced toward her as Bud was taking it off the hook! Thanks Bobbie! :smile2:

    If you get a chance to go to visit with Bud & Bobbie - don't pass it up! We plan on another trip later in the year!

    Here are some picks of us setting the line and a few other memories.

    Pic 1 = Setting a trotline
    Pic 2 = Bobbie getting ready for her fish attack!:smile2:
    Pic 3 = Lil Rick helping set a trotline

    Newton,


    I appreciate all the kind words my Friend. We certainly enjoyed y'alls company, and it was our pleasure to have y'all stay with us in the Hilton... Sorry about spoiling Trish to the point where she now wants a camper..lol ..Ya got to admit that it was very cool and comfortable.

    Maybe you can use the A/C I gave ya in your house since your not gonna Tent camp huh?..ya, right... I am looking forward to the Fall where we can camp out again. it will be cooler and the fish will be biting better..

    We would love to see more Boc members come down and stay a few days with us. The fish will be out of lock jaw mode soon so come join us.

    Even though Bud, Bobbie and Rickey caught their Kittys. Newton and I didn't catch one. Other then Newts lil kitty on jug. I guess them kittys in Texas likes stink bait better. Cause they didn't like our Arkansas Bait. Shad and catalpa worms is what we used.


    1. Me taking a photo of my self
    2. Cntryboy
    3. All of us around the table
