    Sorry but you are too far south for me. You ought to get in touch with those Gateway boys.

    It is some slow, slow fishing right now. I fish for the bigger cats. Today, alands and I went out and didn't do too good. I caught 1 bluecat that was probably 6lbs. But shoot.. he fought a lot better than most bigger cats I have caught! He was sure aggressive. caught him in 27foot of water drifitng with cut bluegill.

    The snakes were really out and about today. We watched a mass of 6 or so snakes running around and were devoring a fresh caught catfish. :eek:oooh: It was fun to watch if nothing else!
