    Well, I had allready decided I wasn't going fishing today cause I wasn't feeling up to par. Then the phone rang and Danny said"Hey Get ready I am taking you fishin for your Birthday". Well I couldn't say no to that, LOL!!!
    We got on the river at about 2:15 Conditions were;
    River level was at 14.2
    Water temp was 36.5
    Was a balmy 38 degrees
    Winds out of the SSW @ 6mph
    Humidity @ 21%
    Cloud cover @ 35%
    Cut skipjack was the bait of choice for the day!
    We pulled up to one hole and started fishing and Danny caught a 10lb Blue in about 20 minutes. Then they just shut down so we moved to another spot. We were there about ten minutes when I caught a 15lb Blue. We were about ready to get everything ready to pack it in when Danny caught another one that weighed 14lbs. All in all, I had a great Birthday, it was a good day to be on the river.

    We also ran into another BOC brother out there today. Ol' Billcatfish was out cruising around chasing those whiskered friends of ours too.

    Fish in the boat makes a great day. Thanks for the in depth report on temps and such. The only thing is, you didn't include any landmarks in your photos so I could find your spots! lol:crazy: :roll_eyes: :lol:
