    I am trying to figure out what to do with myself this weekend. I have the whole weekend off. Is there anyplace that the fish are biting that you dont have to drift to catch them. I dont have a trolling motor yet and it is supposed to be windy this weekend in the midwest. I dont know if I should stay here and hope these fish get over their lock jaw or go and find some hungry ones. If I stay here I would be happy to take Gary out with me! I am kind of leaning that way right now. Willie where are you wanting to fish? Maybe we can meet up. Gary if you want to go out this weekend just let me know, and Willie good luck with the motor I hope it is finally fixed. If you do have a problem just give me a call.

    I wouldn't mind going out on Sunday. I'd like to go tomorrow, but I don't think the girlfriend gonna allow that!:eek:oooh: Anyway, I've got a few techniques I'd like to try. We can launch at Plattin Rock, that's if you want to fish down here. I've got a few "new" holes I'd like to hit. I plan on getting this skunk off my back! :wink:

    Sounds good catman. We were below the dam last weekend for a hour or two. We ended up with a 10 lb. blue. And I had what felt like a monster on... Some how I ended up letting him snap my brand new (spooled that morning) 80 lb. power pro though. :embarassed: Hoping to get my rig back tomorrow. :wink:

    Good luck Dan I might head up there tomorrow with Gary, I am going to try down here today. I dont want to try pulling that anchor by myself in that fast current up there. Hopefully this rise will unlock their little mouths and I can get this critter off of my back!

    Sounds good Willie, I will probably be heading up there tomorrow with Gary. I whent out on the meremac today but no luck. The Mississippi was very muddy and the wind had some pretty big waves kicked up. There was a pretty good amount of trash coming through. I think up above the missouri river might be a little better. So if you get out there early give me a call and let me know what it looks like. I dont think we will be getting out until around 10 or 11.

    Wish I could head up there with you guys tomorrow or of been out today or the day before that. But, I've got a honey-doo list thats a mile long and getting longer everyday. She's got a ton of stuff she wants to do to this new house and I've been working my tail off for the last 3 days with little end in sight. So, good luck guys and nail some big ones...especially Ryan and Gary you guys need to catch some fish and give me a little hope that there are still fish out there that guys like us can catch....lol:big_smile:

    Thanks Mike I will take all the luck I can get. There is alot of skill in fishing and Im pretty skilled at not catching fish right now, so luck sounds pretty good:smile2: Thanks for the luck, Gary and I have some pretty big critters on our backs and I hope today is the day we can get them off. We should be getting out there around noon today, Willie and his brother are already out there. Wish you could join us Mike but you dont want to make the boss mad. By the way congrats on the new house!
