    Way to go guys, at least you got a few, always glad to see some success stories locally. Im sure that Mellon will try to say you stuck him with an errant cast, but we all know better, by the way,I hope the finger is ok!

    Nice bunch of fish guys.

    Did you have to bleed all over a nice, clean boat like that?

    A few channels beats you twos normal outings. :lol: I would consider this a step in the right direction. Before you know it, you'll be on 3 to 5 pound flats and living the dream again. :tounge_out:

    I am heading out tonight on the GMR for a couple hours. I will probably fish a couple miles down from where the two of you fished. I really haven't quite figured that part out yet. I wish I could fish during the day today. I think they are going to bite when that water is warming back up.

    Just the flash from the camera, it does a good job in taking night pictures.
