    Went fishin for channels sunday night and was glad that the bite was on. My fishin partner and i stopped at the holloway res. too catch some shad for bait then hit the river downstream a bit.Things didnt look good at my little fishin hole and started to worry wede get skunked. It was close to midnight and decided to go back up to the dam, smart choice! The water level was way up and it didnt take long before we started landing fish. Nothing over 10 pounds was caught but it was a pretty good night. It made me happy to see my fishin partner catch the biggest one of the night even though it broke the line right as we tried to grab it. This partner, friend and soon to be brother in law hasnt been able to fish in a long time and wont be able to for an even longer time. You see, this young man is a UNITED STATES MARINE and he's still in his teens. It made me proud to go fishin with someone much braver than me. He's home on a very short visit before goin off to kuwait and im hoping he'll be safe and get his butt back soon so we can hit the water again. Not many people can say theyve fished with a devil dog, but i can!!!!

    I'm not sure what a Devil Dog is, but any member of our armed services commands my respect. Rick, I've met Mich Dave before, he and his sons are good fishermen. Take him up on his offer, he is a sincere man.

    hey sparky, just wanted to let you know that a devil dog is a nickname given to a US Marine after a German Commander once said, "Marines fight like devils". thanks for your input about mich dave, i will be contacting him soon. take it easy bro.

    I thought he meant water-dog or mud puppy, some kind of bait.
    Glad it was a good trip.
