    went out last night to fish the meramec.....it did not start off well. after getting hung up and attempting to get it loose without falling in....i fell in. needless to say i was put off. so instead of sitting out there and freezing my n*tts off i decided to throw out a few jugs, and take off so i could get some dry clothes. this was not as easy as it normally is, and i may have misjudged how slippery the bank was. by the time i got them all out i had taken a swim not once, not twice, but three more times. a few choice profinties later and i was done.
    went back out there at about 430 this morning to check and see if i almost killed myself for a reason.....1 3foot gar was there pissed off and thrashing around, rather than go for a swim again i just cut him loose, and let him be on his way. aside from that all bait was gone every other jug, and one jug had been pulled upstream so far that the achor line was streched tight. pulled that one in and found that my 50 pound test snap swivel had been pulled straight, and the nemisis 10/0 hook was gone.........bastards! so im goin back tonight to see if i can get that hook back.....lol

    <lol> sorry, thats funny and not funny. I'm just glad you didn't get hurt man. Last year I had a night like that I posted and busted my butt "big time" twice. Last fall I almost lost my rod flying towards the water and getting a missouri river swirly while jumping after my rod. I was face first half in/half out of the river and when I got back up on the concret boat ramp. I had torn jeans and concrete burns up and down both knee's. <lol> still managed to get that fish. It was a huuuuge three pound channel:tounge_out: I also posted a picture of me busted up holding that fish.
