    I plan on going fishing this weekend, hopefully they keep running water so everything wont freeze up to much, I know Chris (CSCO) is down for the challenge and if scotty is done with his enclosure i bet he will be out there too! What about you Herb you gonna get in a boat and catch some cats!Hopefully everything works out well and we will have some more video for you guys! I think the hi on friday is 7 deg. sat is supposed to be 16 deg. With the lows getting clear up to -13 deg at night!!!!:smile2: :tounge_out::confused2::eek:oooh::eek:oooh::eek:oooh:Get out the tostey toes and the propane heaters I think we are going to need them!!!!! Remember ANY day of fishing is better than the best day at work!

    I feel a big one.:wink: It's about that time!! I hope all works out well. If not i guess ill be fishing from the bank, i am not feeling as confident about that though. I like being able to graph fish in the winter it gets my heart raceing, cuz i know they are there!!! I guess if the boat gets frozen in the river we can wait a while and walk back to the truck!:smile2::smile2: Who wants to take me back to pick it up when the river thaws!!!:smile2:

    we caught a bunch of fish. They were not exactley what we were after. Turned out we got into a mess of shad eating carp! LMAO, No Lie!! We were having a ball catching them though! They were surfacing and running like crazy alot more fun than the baby cats we were able to get!
