    It was a rainy one on Friday. 2.5 inches from Shakopee to St.Paul. Raised the river almost 3/4 of and inch. Lots of wood blown down. It made a big mess in a lot of areas.
    I was out on Sat when the 2nd wave hit. Had to use cooler lids to keep the hail off us. The bite was going nuts in the rain though.
    I did get a nice one once things settled down.

    This one went 45 LBS

    Wasn't able to fish this past weekend due to family in from out of town. We didn't get even a 1/4" out of that storm.
    Congrats on the nice fish Larry.
