    I've been having lower back pain lately, and I figured it was from (and this is the truth) the 517 blue cats I've caught so far in 2007, according to my fishing logs. Half of those were over 10 lbs, so in addition to tearing up my fishing gear, I figured I'd overdeveloped the back muscles from hauling roughly 2-1/2 tons of blue cats into the boat (not counting 300 or so bass and oodles of other fish) in 6 months.
    It seems the doctors think I have kidney stones. Poo! What do they know? I went in for a CT scan today and I'm pretty sure that what's happening is that I'm growing a DORSAL FIN!!! Too much licking the skipjack juice off of my fingers is probably the culprit.:0a23:

    Just as a warning, they may have to install a stent; the bad part is getting it out.:crazy: Keep a positive attitude and hang in there!

    Eric, that is one pain I don't want again, ever. Judy said it was equivalent to giving birth except for not having a baby to show for it. Drink lots and lots of fluids and hope it passes soon. We hope to see you on the river sometime soon.
