    lol....thats probably a good idea. i would be going out tonight myself, but if okie needs a partner and dosent mind the fact he has never met me, i might fish in that tourney with him. i will need to spend all the time i can with the girlfriend so i can pull that one off.
    isnt that the same tourney your in this weekend? so if i do go ill be fishing against my own bait.....lol

    looks like okie has himself a partner, and i hope they both have a good time and do well.
    i am still thinking of headin down there to see the results. theres a restaraunt down that way that my girlfriend loves, so i might be able to piggyback stoppin by the tourney on taking her out to that restaraunt.

    HEADLINE..... FLOAT TRIP LOST A PIG AT THE BANK

    Im not the one for fish stories, but this one must be told....
    The other day I got some skipjacks from Brandon (thks bro)... For two days I've been dying to use some.. So I run down to a nice spot on the river.. There was so much trash I only put out one pole thinking I'll save money from the dreaded hang ups there.. Rushing to get down there I ran off and left my three way rigs at home... So what I do? I took a single rig tied the weight on the bottom and tied the leader on top with the main line... Anyways.. i sat there for about half a hr r so.. and my bell rings a little, then a little more... then outta no where my three piece surf rod bends down so far u can hear the butt of it cracking in the rod holder.. my heart skip a few beats by now.. not to mention the drag this thing was strippin.. man, I finally get my pole outta the holder and felt the weight of this beast... It was a tug-a-war for about 10min then it got hung up (so i thought) So i go to break the line... I took five or six steps back it didnt break.. Did it again.. it didnt break... now im thinking i hooked up on a banch..(again so i thought) next thing i knew the fight was on again.. this time the beast was about 15yds out when he splashed the first time i thought theres no way im gonna land this fish... I got him a little closer then that funny leader thing i was talkin about earlier.... yep you guess it snapped louder then my 22....lmao im still laughing about it to keep from crying... I did get a good look at him...he had to be well over 60+... then I sit there for while pissed.. then called shawn with the bad news... well gang theres my fish story and im sticking to it...

    O, please believe i will be back down there tonight.... prob the rest of the month.. Im gonna call that fish martha... one day i'll have a pic of her..

    Don't feel bad willie. One time a couple of years ago I fought a monster for a half hour before he finally got hung up on something and i lost him.

    I don't know why you even want to bother getting the boat fixed Willie. As well as you do from the bank, I think that would be an unfair advantage for the catfish. :wink:
