Well folks, we completed 2006 without injury or major equipment damage and with lots of fish, all being good things. Decided to start a new year with new thread. Last year on Jan 7 (2006) the river level was 5.7 ft in Baton Rouge. The forecast for Jan 7, 2007 is 25.6 ft! Looks like the new year will bring in changes from the start and will continue to challenge our fishing ability. It will have gone up 11 ft in 1 week. There will probably be lots of debris floating around this weekend, but hopefully we can get Brad back on the water before he has to start hitting the books hard again. Weather on Sat is supposed to be mid 70's but a reasonable probability of rain. We'll need to watch the forecast and see what develops. Hope you all had a great set of Holidays and are continuing to get your fill of football. What a game yesterday with Boise State and Oklahoma. The Sugar Bowl should be pretty good tomorrow also. Take care.
