    Well I caught 2 spoonbill yesterday eve one 35 and the other 32.
    Let the biggest one I ever had on broke me off after dragging me through
    the gravel. Felt really good to have something try to pull you in the river
    The current is big as they are making money keeping people cool.
    I will keep yall informed on future gunfights:smile2:

    Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only dummy out there in the heat:big_smile: Me and BIG SAM went out today, caught some skips out of the boat.
    Or let me say he caught some skips I have never been shut out on skips
    until yesterday I never caught a single one Big Sam catching 3 at a time
    I was jinxed . WE had a good time put 2 small cats in the boat off of jugs.
    Well thats it for now:smile2:
