    Went out with Pearl today and tonight. Caught a few nice fish early during the heat. Banged a 20 and 30lber right of the gate. We were stoked, but then it slowed down considerably. I think we caught 5 over the next 5 hours -- dinks and rats -- still not complaing.

    But.....we pulled upon one last hole and it was on. Had all 6 rods go over basically at once. When the dust cleared we had five fish laying in the bottom of the boat with hooks still in them. We were able to release one during the frenzy, but we decided to go ahead take a picture of the others.

    We then put right back out and low and behold the bite was gone as quickly as it started. We caught one more before it was time to go. Really strange, but I am not complaining.

    It surely made all of those hours without a nibble over the past few years so worth it. It was bound to happen eventually.

    Way to go Greg, it sounds like you guys had a great night out there. 6 rods at one time and you got them all in, now that is impressive!

    On a different note though; I don't know who dresses this guy??? First the flowerdy shorts and now a Titans shirt, poor kittens were probably ashamed when they saw who caught them.:smile2:

    Hey GQ, here's the deal. I'm much more interested in catching the kitty's than looking pretty in a boat. Catching the kitty's is hard enough. I'll leave the modeling to you and Nessie.

    Olejer, Skipeye and BEHITJ -- it's probably in your best interest to just focus on the fishing as well. :wink:

    Ratman, you do whatever you want. :roll_eyes:

    Ryan,
    I hear what you are saying about the ashamed kittens, but he is wearing the Titans shirt because he is a true Tennessee sports fan and even wears bright orange shorts to show his dedication to his beloved Tennessee Volunteers. Be nice to him today because he is mourning the loss to UCLA last night.:roll_eyes:

    O.K. Nessie........O.K. I will throw him some slack. I guess TN fans deserve to catch fish too, but I draw the line on folks from KY.:smile2:

    I was just saying all that stuff about cutting him slack to make him feel better while he is in mourning:roll_eyes:. But after seeing him try to start trouble with you, olejer, skipeye and BEHITJ, I think he must be feeling better so you should give him the business. The vols aren't that good anyway (except for women's basketball:wink:).
