    Larry where are the fish going to be biting at this week??? Have it figured out by your days off. I was out in the rain last night catching toads.:roll_eyes::crazy: Now frogs might just be the ticket to Mr. Flathead this early in the year. It is a lot easier to catch frogs than crawlers.:wink:

    OK, I misunderstood you. If you need a hand let me know when and I'll help you finish it up. Don't forget about the can of spray paint and the big washers for the rod holders. That'll make them even more solid and look good.:cool2:

    Guys and anybody that reads this thread...I need a HUGE favor!

    One of our own Brothers needs a lot of Prayers. I'm not gonna say who or whats happening out of respect but they are in need for our Prayers right now. I know I'll really appreciate it and they will too.
    Thanks in advance!!!:wink:

    Yep, the bases would look really good also. I'd say a really big washer(a little bigger than the ones underneath) painted the same color as the boat would work out good, also be pretty cheap. They would keep the metal from bending also under a load, the washers would even the pressure out and be more stable....I think....:eek:oooh::roll_eyes::wink::smile2:

    Thanks Larry! Its most definitely appreciated!:wink:
    I don't see why big washers wouldn't work just as good. Just get them with the same size hole in the middle but a little bigger than the others. Be a cheap way to go, maybe a couple bucks at most for them and a buck or 2 for the paint.
    I'll be ready whenever you are. I've got warm clothes and rain gear so I'm good to go.:roll_eyes::cool2:

    Count me in!:cool2: We oughta hit Grayson sometime and try to hook up with some of those monster cats I've heard about. Plus we can catch the eaters there. I've got a small portable grill that Regina bought me to take fishing. We can take it, beach the boat and cook some grub and bank fish while were doing it.:cool2:
    I CAN"T WAIT!!!!!:wink::cool2:

    I'm always up for any kind of fishing trip. We'll definitely have to do that!!!:wink:



    :smile2::smile2::smile2: I am happy, Larry got a great deal on a great boat! I don't know though, he's pretty dang happy himself.
    I'm just happy that its finally getting to be that time again to start chasing Mr. Flattie! I have a feeling that all of us Eastern KY guys will be getting their new PB this year....That is if I can ever find any darn bait!:eek:oooh::roll_eyes::smile2:
    I'm gonna talk to Larry and see if he'll make me co-captain...:smile2:

    First off Prayers goes out for our fellow members that are in trying times.

    Now what kind of problem are you having that you are using washers to fix ????
    Next I like weekend trips too. John and I had one at the wall last year 16 hours straight will qualify I think.
