    Kris, the reason I tripped you was because you did the "ellusive buck grunt" on my jacket the other day!!! Not just to catch the fish and make you net it,lol.:big_smile: Fun trip tonight man.

    First of all you two are a riot.It's good to see 2 people who can fish together and take a ribbing from each other. Don't find that to often anymore.now congrads on the great catches. Keep up the good work.If you want to call it WORK!!

    Trust me, it's a TON of work fishing with SMOKE!!! When the fish ain't hittin were always up to somethin. We gotta be grown men at home so on the river we are like little kids. U'mm I take that back,, I don't think we've ever acted like grown men???

    We do alot of huntin also. We were squirrell huntin one day, both sitting on the ground lookin in a hickory tree. We been there about 20 minutes bein real still and not making a move. I'm thinkin "man them squirrell's are gonna come out here real soon. Kris is about 15 yards to my left and I'm looking the other way. Well all the sudden I hear this MASSIVE "butt explosion" from over by Smoke's direction. I look over at him and he's got this big grin and says,,,,Dat's ma Buck Grunt!!!!lol We didn't see or here any squirrell's that whole day!! I think Kris was just payin me back for sittin him under a walnut tree that had nut's falling all over!!
