    me and cuz(hoosierpolecat) had a chance to go get our river boat home for the season. as allways we had to wet a line,even though the water was 47*. we didnt expect to hook a flatie but channels were a good bet. the river had come up about 3 feet due to damn work up stream. the leaves were getting us down and talk of giving up was in the air. i didnt beleave him when he said hey i got one on! after looking at his tip shake i new he was for real,so i got out the video cam. i got it on video and pics for you guys,here is a pic of his 22#er.

    Hey cuz you didnt get my good side.....anyway glad we did take a few poles with us. You know I hate to put the boat up, maybe 1 more trip just to make sure the water is too cold :wink: lol And maybe the leaves will all be off the trees so we dont have to contend with that.

    T & River Scum:

    Take the shotguns along & blast some ducks! One of my co-workers has mastered his "Troll & Shoot" method for muskie & geese at Webster. Trolls for muskie, but when he sees geese he kills the motor & pops a goose. His lab jumps in & goes to fetch it. I know you don't have a bird dog so if you take me I'll retrieve...although I have a bad habit of chewing up the ducks on the way back to the boat! :ah:

    Oh, you might want to check if duck season is actually open right now....
