    *Yawn* I just got in from my first paylake outing of 2008.

    Four or five times a summer, my brothers, sister, cousin Dave and I get together to do a little paylakin', we've been doing this for close to 12 years now.

    Well last night, I get there around 9pm, and I had just missed seeing Dave's ole lady Regina catching an 18 pound blue cat. Right after that Dave catches his second Flathead over 30 pounds (he'd been there since 4pm). A moment later, my older brother Russ lands this nice flathead.

    So of course I'm thinking, "hell yeah, it's on tonight"

    Well, around 10pm my sisters BF is already asleep in my Explorer.

    Then, around midnight, my brother Clay's wife leaves, she's preggers, so I'll excuse that, but right afterward, Clay's asleep in his tent! ( he got to the paylake right before I did!) And to top it off, he leaves his poles, and his sons poles in the water. Nice. I'm just glad he put his kid to bed before I stuffed a sock in his mouth.

    Cathy, my sister, joins her BF in the sleeping festivities around 1am, of course both of them leave thier poles in the water too.

    Russ has been sick with bronchitis, so he packs up around 1:30am, and Regina follows. At least they take thier poles and stuff with them.

    Dave, or as we fondly call him, Drunk Dave, takes his poles up and heads to his truck to crash around 3:30am, leaving all his other gear, bait, cooler, fire, etc., for me to watch I guess.

    So, by 3:30am, it was me, nine poles, two fires, and all thier stuff to watch, taking up one whole side of the paylake.

    Well, I didn't catch a daggone thing, but as you can see, I stayed very, very, busy, and just got in at 11 this morning.

    I'm a little confused 'cause I thought we were going fishing, not sleeping.

    And when did my brothers and sisters get to old to hang with me? Man old age must suck , that's why I ain't signing up for it!


    I hope ya'll are having a great holiday weekend and catching lots of cats!

    At least you're able to get out and fish. Catching the fish is just a bonus IMO!:wink::big_smile:

    You're still young, I'm 35 but have the body of a 75 year old!!! :[

    Hey Will ... nobody is talking because they are finding out it is cheaper to fish pay lakes than it is to buy gas ...... :smile2::smile2::smile2::cool2: Garry-

    Dont worry Missy, your time will come, it sucks getting old....:smile2:
    I have a tough time staying up late since my work schedule has me up at 2:45 AM, therefore Im in bed by 7:30 PM or so, heck last night was out till 9:30 and it about killed me. Im such a lightweight....

    Bummer they didnt wake up and see a basket full of big fish, that would have taught them.... :crazy:

    Angie thanks for sharing your fishing trip. Glad you love fishing even if you had a bummer night on catching. On the age thing remember this. "Your day will come":smile2:

    You're lucky if you wake up one morning, realize you have grandkids already and can say "I don't feel old yet". I refuse to go calmly into the night.

    If I stay up all night fishing it takes me a couple of days to recover from it, always has...I must have been old since birth.

    That gray hair will be gone today. I'll look a little younger next time you all see me. Not sure if I'm gonna have Regina shave my head or just dye it...:crazy::smile2:
