Well...I didnt get to go fishing this weekend but I was able to get some things done around that house. In addition to some things on the wife's honey do list, I also finally got off my butt and built my dog an enclosure. Hopefully it will keep him out of trouble and keep him from digging. I layered the ground with fencing material then I covered in approx 2 inches of dirt. I think that it came out pretty good thanks to my fishing buddy Chris. I gotta tell you all, this guy is a true fishing buddy. Since I couldnt go out this weekend, he came over and helped me build the pen. Also, finally built my blue gill trap:big_smile_2:!!! I wont even attempt to take credit for this. I got the idea from the BOC library. Here is the link for anyone wanting the instructions. http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38891 It took me quite a while to do one and I still have the material for the 2nd one. It kicked my butt pretty good! Now I just gotta figure out to use it:smile2:.
