    I'm heading to the same place in an hour to an hour and a half. I'll only stay for maybe 2-3 hours but that'll be long enough to find out if their biting. I'll be using the live gills and Warmouths only. I have some left from yesterday.

    I'm not gonna put a poll on this, I'm too tired to do it. I'm running on maybe 3 hours sleep.:roll_eyes:...And not much at all the past 3-4 nights. Good thing the river is only 2.1 miles away...:cool2::smile2:

    Feel free to add your picks, I just hope for 1 or 2 Cats at least. Nothing wrong with wishful thinking...:wink::smile2::beat_brick:

    The results are in...All good and all Very BAD!!!

    I caught 2 small Flatties and 1 Channel all under 2 pounds which were released. I did get a pic of the Channel, I'll try to get it on in a bit.


    First Bad News: Went to turn my Berkley scales on and they are dead or broke. I'm gonna take them back and get another set.


    Second Bad News: I hooked into something pretty daggone big(bent the ABU MH 8' rod like nothing at all), most likely a Flattie that would have been a heck of a fish but after I set the hook and cranked the handle 3-4 times he/she just came off. I was Ticked again but not as bad as I was about to be.....


    The REALLY BAD NEWS!!!: My 8 year old All-Time Favorite pole in the World "Lucy" the 9' Nite-Stick Casting MH Rod met an untimely death...:angry::angry::angry:
    I was snagged and pulling straight back(and wrapping the line around a stick) to try to break it free and when that didn't work I let slack in it and tried again. I decided to try and swarp it back and forth and up and down. DUMBA$$ Mistake!!! About the 4rth time I did it the rod snapped right above the top piece leaving at least a couple inches in the bottom part.
    With all this momentum coming at me I flew back off my feet and landed straight on my back and on several large, rough, jagged and HARD Rocks. I cussed and think I cried a little...LMAO!
    I got home and I have bruises on my left shoulder, left hip, left buttox(LOL), and several on my low and mid-upper back.


    I guess you can say it hurts a little...LOL! Thank God for Narcotic Rx Medications!!! LOL!!!

    Sorrry for Rambling but just had to share my best and worst trip this year with you all!!!

    It runs in the family, me and my cuz I fish and hang with is bad as me if not worse. He just fell off a ladder the other day plumbing. He still looks worse than me. :crazy:
    He also has a real bad back that needs surgery and a shoulder that needs cut on again.
    Back problems and stuff like that are crazy on my Dad & Mom's side.:sad2:

    John fishing is suppose to be fun. Not a fight. Look at it this way. You got the bad trip out of the way. I wouldn't expect to much sympathy from Regina, for the lump on the rump. Good luck on the next trip brother.

    I hope I win the 9'er. It sucks because I only have 1 more 9'er casting rod. All the other 9' rods I have are spinning.
    I'm gonna check with Steve about trying to get one next week, hopefully he'll give me a good deal.
    I feel like I fell off a 30' cliff this morning. I'm going back to bed and rest for a while. You all have a good day!!!:wink::big_smile:

    I dunno if I could trade it or not like I said we will have to see tomorrow :smile2:

    I kinda like it but my Tidewater spinning reel is a little big for it since the eyes are casting type.

    I am going to try to swipe my wifes Mitchell Cat Rod to play with tomorrow my other 9 ft has a bad eye on it and it nicks my line after a few fish.

    So where's the pictures of the bruised butt. I am sure those BOC Girls wanna see...not me :tounge_out:


    I am destined to lose my black and blue rod.... it seems to almost get jerked in the water or flipped overboard more often than I would like.

    Thats cool to me. I probably won't bring the Master if you don't want me to.
    I really want a 9' Nite-Stick Pro Casting MH,,,,Actually 2 would tickle me!!!
    I'm gonna talk to Steve - He owns a shop and donated one of the 6000's and a rod too(I think) and maybe more.
    He'd probably give them to me at cost or not much above. I've known him about 8 years and he's a heck of a guy!!! He always treats me very well!!!
    I also do the same for him so it equals out.
    We should have business cards from him to give away and he's just in Catlettsburg,KY. Not far at all where we'll be at, maybe 30 minutes at tops, probably less.
