    Me, Danny and Adam(junior42) are going to one of our Top Secret Spots on the Big Sandy River tonight In hopes of hooking into some nice Flatties. If all goes well, we'll have a big variety of live and cut baits. They've been there before and almost no fishing pressure in that area. They've caught fish, nothing too big but have lost some really nice ones.:sad2:
    This will be my first trip there, they said I had to be blindfolded, turned around 5 times before I can get into the Blazer. Must really be secretive!:wink::smile2:
    Hopefully tomorrow we'll be posting some nice pics of our catches that we took pics of and released!!!

    Wish us luck guys, we'll be in the middle of nowhere, abt. 15 miles past that, 2 lefts and a right.:smile2:
    Hope to show you all some nice pics tomorrow!!!!!:wink::cool2:

    John, I voted that I get the biggest. Jr. will be busy kepping you out of the water. And remember its a walk go lite on the stuff you bring. And a gun the bears get pretty wild when you bring a fish in.

    Thanks J.C.!!! You're right, I'm way overdue to catch something at least!!! I'm hoping on a BIG ol' Flattie but will take a nice Channel also!
    This area has little to no fishing pressure and seems to be a perfect spot for Flatties!
    I'm just hoping to at least get a 20#er tonight but I'll settle for a 10#er...:smile2:

    Before Danny posts this and blows it all out of proportion, Once again, I was in the water. You can almost say I went for a swim at Dewey Lake....:crazy:
    But, It was for a friend. On our way out, Danny dropped his cell phone and it landed about a foot away from a drop off to the water which we didn't know was there because it was dark as he!! out, even with our headlamps on.
    I went to get his phone and over the small drop off I went. I saved his phone though, I threw it up on the path. The water was only about halfway up to my knees but I was stuck, I'd still be there if not for him! Danny had to literally pull me back up to the path. Thanks Danny but next time you drop your phone, you or JR are gonna get it...:roll_eyes::smile2:
    I guess thats what friends are for, except for me throwing the 6' Copperhead at him.....:wink::smile2::smile2:
    I just hope my boots dry out before tonights trip!!!:confused2:

    Not only are you back "on the fishing scene" :0a23:, but I would like to add that It doesn't matter who catch the "Big One", Hell - if I could I would cast my vote for a three of you guys, - but the main thing is that:


    "You guys getting out there & doing it"!
    :wink:
