    Fished tonight on the GMR and quickly landed a big snapper about 15 lbs Im guessing, then later nailed a real trophy Red Eared Slider of about 2 lbs and about 8" across his back, a real monster!! so now Im pumped that I might be able to get the GMR Grand Slam with a softshell but it just wasnt to be.. :sad2: BTW, those were Turtles #13 and #14 for the year and not that anyone cares, but as far as catfish go, got skunked again, thats 6 out of the last 7 times out!!! First I thought I had the Mellon Curse but Now I think I got the Dink Turtle curse.....:crazy: Still a nice night to be out, water is really low and around 71 degrees. Until this weekend.........

    Mark, you keep count of your turtles for the year? :roll_eyes: I am going to have to take you out catching soon. Yes, I said catching, not fishing. :lol: It is starting to disappoint me about all these skunkings you have taken lately. Not that we ever did good together though. :big_smile: What have you been using for bait, Dinks and Mellons leftovers still. Go hit a creek and get you some fresh stuff. I'm just giving you a hard time. Seriously though, we should get out some time. Good luck on the Grand Slam next time.
