    Took her out today for the 1st trip. Went to Murray again. Waited till late to go, got there about 10:30 and only fished till 3:30. I managed to get 6, 1 dink and the rest 16 - 21 pounds. Fished both shad and herring, couldn't tell much difference as to the preference. Caught most in 35 feet of water. The water temp is still coming up, about 51.6 today in the main channel.

    The boat is great, lots more room than my old boat. I had a little trouble with the tilt and trim, it acts like a bad connection. The relay will pick up and start to lower \ raise the motor, then just drop out. I also failed to charge the trolling motor battery, bought it yesterday. It lasted about 1 hour and died. After that I just put out the socks and drifted.

    Took my 16 year old nephew with me. He caught his personal best, an 18 pound blue, plus a dink. He was tickled.

    God Bless All,
    Steve

    Maybe I will just put a big rooster decal on the bottom, where all the fishes can see it!:wink:

    Glad you got to the water and caught some fishes. Isn't it great to watch someone else reel in those PB's? See it's not so hard to share the love!:smile2::smile2:

    Thanks guys. There is nothing I love more than taking a kid, or anyone for that matter and putting them on some good cats. The kis I took today doesn't have anyone to do anything like that with. It will be great memories for him as well as me.

    SUNBIRD, Surely you put a rooster on my boat would you? :confused2: I thought we were becoming friends. I was thinking about trying to connect with you and fish sometime, but now I wonder. :wink: In all honesty, I pull for the cocks every game but 1.:embarassed:'

    God Bless All,
    Steve
