    Well. it's 6:30, and my wife, wives G-ma, wives Mom, and kids just left for the mall to go see Santa. And I'm sneaking out to the river. Hopefully to catch a fish or two. Wish me luck!!!

    We had high winds and temps in the 30s. Some light snow was blowing but no accumulation. Just a raw and cold day.

    Good luck out there Dan. It's pretty darn cold out there.
    This weather reminds me of a trip Cuz and I took back in February....A run from Festus to Chain of Rocks. That was a coooooooldd trip!
    I don't think it's crazy, just die hard that's all. Can't catch no fish sitting on the couch, that's for sure.:smile2:

    NOTHING!! :angry: But I didn't stay out to long. I've got to work tomorrow. I was dropping anchor by 7:30. And I pulled the boat out of the water about 10:30. Shortest fishing trip I think I've ever had. I fished 3 different holes fairly close to the ramp with no luck. I had enough layers of clothes on that I really wasn't cold. If it wasn't for work tomorrow, I'd have been looking for another hole. :big_smile: Now, when's my next chance to get back out?

    Well...I'm on vacation and don't have to go back to work until January 2nd!

    What in the world am I to do? Well I guess I'll hit the gym and well..................................I guess..................................I could maybe wet a line or two.

    Soooooooooooo if any body needs a fishing parnter or has a day off during the week (I'll have my daughter on the weekends) give me a shout. I've got a boat but I also am pretty good at pulling up anchors in other peoples boats! (Ryan :wink:)

    So Dan, or anybuddy else, if you need a buddy, give me a holler!

    I would love to go this week Bill but I am on sofa duty (picking out a sofa with Heather) tomorrow night and I pick my son up on Friday. One night next week will probably work. Give me a call some time and we can set it up.

    Dan, you are a brave soul my friend for going out tonight. Did you have any luck marking fish?

    I thought I did Ryan, but I couldn't put one on the hook to prove it. I'm pretty sure I marked thousands of asians though. :big_smile: Behind each bridge pylon under the clark bridge there were hundreds of asains stacked up.

    Dont worry Dan with the right amount of lead fumes and a few beers we will get you over this fear of poking hook holes in those fishes mouths.:smile2: (J/K buddy) I have never fished up there but it is definately on my list for next year. I can't wait to get back out there and try to find a school of cats to blacken the screen.
