    Well got out with RiverBuggy4x4 and DrPepper in the boat that Pepper gave me. It did really well.. Went to the first hole and got a good run but missed it and then tony caught the channel ( shown below ) we then moved down river where DrPepper caught 2 Flatties a small one around 2-3 pounds and then this one shown below about 10 pounds... I didnt catch anything and its fine by me. I was just happy to know i was in my boat and on the river... its a good feeling!!! :big_smile:

    What did I tell ya about having gasoline on your hands and flatties?
    Same with riverbuggy, (aside from fishing on top of a tree) he had gas on his hands too.
