    Thanks Jugger, I have got to get my boat fixed. It is so hard to steer I can't put it in the water. The steering cable in about 3 to 4 foot to long. It was like that when I bought it, but over the years is has gotten way too hard to steer. I just haven't had time to fix it.

    Some nice fish on the video, looked like a ball!! I grew up fishing, wading, and swimming that whole area. Long branch, cedar creek and what we called river view access which is the boat ramp by easter seal camp, and of course tyree is across the lake from there.

    Welcome to Catfish1, Kelly. I had the pleasure of staying in Carthage for a few months back in the 1970's. I used to fish Cordell Hull Dam from the bank and had some friends who lived up that way in an A-frame house. Also fished the bank from Bledsoe Creek, my boss lived there in an apartment.

    Thanks festus, it's been around maybe 6 months since I have posted on this site. For some reason it's like I am starting all over again? Like everything from the past has been erased? Carthage is a great town I think, pretty country too!

    Hey festus, do you walk with a limp?:smile2:

    No, but I used to. I had a bad ankle for several years, and after I started eating right, exercising, and lost about 75 pounds, I made a miraculous (sp) recovery. :wink:

    Sorry festus, after seeing your whole name I feel like a dummy. I was refering to the festus on Gunsmoke! Thought that was a screen name.:roll_eyes:

    It is my screen name, Kelly. Chester was the deputy on Gunsmoke who was predecessor to Festus who walked with a limp. :wink:
