    We went out Saturday night to some local water here around Sioux City and caught 16 we kept and a few thrown back. We tried to sort them for eggs but missed a couple and they were full of eggs. Wasn't that bad out there but we had enough jackets on, it could of been March. Had to catch a fish so we could handle it to warm our hands up. lol Some mist/rain and lots of fog but it was fun. Stayed out 'till about 1:30am, with the heavy cloud cover the lake was lit up from reflection from the local power plant. Fun.
    OH, yeah, size... smallest maybe 1.5 lbs and the largest maybe 3 lbs that weren't kept.

    Mike, good to hear ya had some bites and caught a couple, even though they weren't the ones you were looking for. I really wanted to make it but just had too many irons in the fire. The Fire Dept., I belong to was serving breafast Sat. and Sun. and supper on Sat. night, so I knew I wouldnt get time to go. Keep me in mind for next yr. If you're ever looking for new water and get over this way, give me a shout. Thanks for faxing me the Tourney App. Stan
