well my back condition has been improving by the day..So I get the bright idea I am gonna go to my river spot...Then I made a bigger mistake I askedmy wife to go. Not that I dont enjoy fishing with her I do, but when she goes you have to take everything but the kitchen sink:smile2: I went and got shad first, one throw and I got lucky, darn near filled a 5 gallon bucket with one throw, so I thought this is gonna be a great day!!!! We got to the river, and we had mt 14 month old son with us, could not find a sitter so we just packed up the play pen..whats one more thing to carry..right? I made 3 trips carring everything we needed, my last trip was for the cooler that held ice, bait and drinks..about halfway I started getting reall stiff in my back..I made it down to the water and by that time I was practically crawling:sad2: I did manage to bait one rod up the on the cast I THOUGHT OH NO, this aint goona work..I laied down in the sand for 20 minutes to get the pain to ease up a little..I told my wife we need to leave everything, rods reels the whole works, cause I had to get out of there while I could walk..she was carring the baby so she was of no help. I got back to my truck and thought of the 4 complete outfits I had left lying on the bank, well over 100 bucks in each combo, my tackle bag, and everthing else I had left there for someone else. So I called my son praying that he was home, thank god he was..He came down to the river and packed everything out for me. Now I am back in bed like an idiot!
