    I meet up with Johnnie about noon yesterday. After putting the boat in, we fished for a while until it started to rain. We caught on that weighed around 8 pounds. Then we went in and trailored the boat. We remained at the discharge ramp until 10:30 p.m . Alltogether we caught 16 fish weighing anywhere from around 1 lbs up to about 8 lbs.

    I really enjoyed the trip as usual. And learned another thing or two from Johnnie. Also got to try out some of Gene Chambers sickle hooks. These hooks are great and would be a benefit to all that uses them.



    Was hoping to visit Top, but either he couldn't make it down or we missed him while out in the boat. Will post more later, as of now i am gonna get some rest before taking on the task of cleaning fish!
    Attached is a pic of the ones i brought home with me!

    I got at the ramp about 10:10 AM 12 Jan 2008, stayed about one hour and no one put a boat in at that time. I guess we should have used our cell phones to link up.:confused2:

    Newt, what location did the cats come from? next to the orange berrier?, in the stumps or in the swift water.

    Top - johnnie said he got there around 10. Guess you was ahead of him. I did not get there until 12 noon with my boat. Maybe next time. Trisha kinda got worried again and said we fish to long. She may come next time , but she is ready to go in a few hours. Me and Johnnie can stay a while. May have to get directions to your house and see if you want some company if she gets ready to go to soon!!!! LOL

    Attached are a few more pics of some of the fish. Before cleaning them, i weighed the biggest one on a set of old spring scales, it came to 10 pounds!!!

    I missed out on the fishing due to being sick. Now I want to go to Lake Degray this coming weekend. I want to rent a yurt and stay saturday night. We will see how things go this week before posting. Johniee you two caught a mess of cats. Who knows we might go back out to the Nuke Plant instead. :big_smile:
