    Good luck brother!

    I tried to fish last night and every crazy for 100 miles was already drunk and running up and down the river. They were racing at 11 pm in pitch black. Couple of rigs came by must have been running 60 MPH in the dark. I know the moon was out pretty could but there is more logs and junk floating in that river than you can shake a stick at.

    The sand bar across from us was already filling up and they shot off more fireworks than most cities do at the official fire works show.

    Along with all of the crazies the water patrol was out in full force. Pulling every rig over than was on the river looking to write up some BUIs and haul some rednecks off to the county lock up.

    Got home about 12:30 and the wife who is bails bond agent was down at the pokey bailing out 6 differant guys locked up for BUI and it wasn't even the 4th yet.

    Im not trying to discourage you but just be careful. As for me I wouldnt go anywhere near the river untill after 5PM tomorrow night.

    Good luck and have fun.

    They are having boat races down at Big Sand bar on the Alabama. There will be more drunks down there than you can shake a stick at. I would be tempted to go if I didnt have my kids. Im sure there will be a LOT of nice scenery down there.:wink:

    Think me and the kids will hang out around the house. Got a couple of briskets on the smoker and a couple of hunder bucks worth of fireworks for them to shot off.

    We will head up to the camp on sunday and spend the night. back on the water at daylight and do a little HOG HUNTING.

    Good luck if ya head out.

    just got done shooting off fireworks and ready to head to the river now no reason why you cant party and fish but i like to fish mostly at night.

    party early fish late, or just party while you fish

    Fishing and boozing has no place together in my book.

    I dont venture out during the holidays, cause I cant stand to watch all the morons on the water.

    There was way too much Seadoo traffic at the campground today to put a line out. Did some bass fishing close to the bank, but it just wasn't cutting it.

    Not to mention I couldn't pass up the options to take out the quads and rip open the Seadoos also. :p

    I had Friday off so I fished then, last night I went to the Kid Rock & Lynard Skynard concert instead. I figured this is a good weekend to catch bait for next week when the river is back to normal.
