    When I went out last monday, I found a few minor repairs to do to the boat, so that's how I am spending this day. Nothing big, ignition switch is loose & need to run new aerator hose. However, I am wanting to go out later today, from Flam City more than likely. Let me know if any of you are interested. I can almost guarantee we catch bait. Fish are an whole other story.

    Now, last week I went out, it was nice an overcast with a slight breeze, couldn't be better. As soon as I set up, the clouds & wind left and the sunburn set in. Nasty fishing weather. Today, I'm counting on a few storms to chase the sun away.:eek:oooh: One of the few good reasons about having a small gas tank, I never get too far away from the ramp. LOL Actually, I can go about 30 miles away & back, but I won't try it. Anyway, don't let a few minor storms passing through scare ya away.:embarassed: Remember, counting CuzIcan, there are now 3 folks who have fished with me and not gotten soaked in the rain. I still think "The Pro" is the only one brave enough to have gone out in my boat more than once. :crazy: Grump, I know we fished alongside more than once, but you only got in my boat the one time I believe.
    Come on! Aint any of you got the nerve to trust The Kutters Katter?:wink:

    Got the hose & valve installed.

    Found the ignition to be broken & unrepairable. The threaded part that holds it to the dash broke off. Need to find a new one, but doubt I could today. Doesn't matter, it still works, just had to remove it from the dash & will have to hold it to turn on & off.

    Tic tic tic, anybody? Nobody? Cowards, every one of ya.:wink:

    Well the Team Okie struck out 3 up and 3 down...but I ain't giving up. I know that there is a big ole blue some where with my name on it.

    We looked at a bunch of holes but never really marked any fish.

    3 am an we just got back home.
    First things first, it did not rain, much less storm!!!!!
    Nice meeting Dan, he's a great fishing partner & hopefully I didn't scare him off for another night on the river.
    Can't ever, ever go out without at least some sort of an adventure & this is no exception. Battery for the lights & tilt/trim went dead an hour after dark. Nice calm ride back to the dock in total darkness, though. Luckily the motor runs off the other battery. Only real problem was changing the wires over at the ramp so I could raise the motor.
    Did I mention, no rain?
    While no monsters were caught, Dan can now be removed off the Skunk List 2009 with a 29 pounder. I got one that would have gotten me off, if it swallowed the bait it was caught with. Try as I might, it didn't. Total weight brought into the boat was 83 pounds, so you can see the bite was quite good, if only dinks. Not sure exact weights, but it goes something like this: 29, 17, 11, 10, 9 & several under 5. Both of us had fish on that were well above Dan's 29 lb'er. Alas, they did not want to get into the boat.
    We'll post pic's of Dan's fish to make it official, later today when I wake up. LOL
    All in all, a very nice night with the added bonus of fish biting. Did I tell you all yet that it didn't rain?:wink:

    I think we may have some real cool weather, in about 2 or 3 weeks, cold actually.

    That sounds like a real good trip. Is there no problem parking at Flam city overnight? Did you guys catch up stream or down stream of Flam city? What were they biting on?

    Good times for sure! It was good meeting two more of Gateway's "distinguished" members, not to mention getting off the skunk list.

    Twas a great night on the river. Kutter led us to a couple bait holes on Kutters Katter and we netted some shad, asians, about a 100 gar and a BIG carp. After that it was off for the cats. We anchored out and within a short few moments Kutter had the first blue on board. That was probably at about 6pm or so. The bite kept up (on and off) till we left at about 2am.

    The weather was great, the bullchitting was a blast, the skitos left us alone for the most part (thank you thermocell), and we even had fresh brewed coffee after dark and throughout the night. Our return ride home in the dark was no problem at all. Kinda neat actually as the water was like a mirror.

    Most (if not all) of the fish we caught on asians. Water depths for fish ranged from about 6 feet to 30 I would say. Both of us had a couple REALLY nice rips that I sure wish we would have gotten a look at...perhaps next time?

    Kids setting off fireworks at the ramp helped guide us in.
    Hmm, the Mississippi is downstream, so yes, downstream.
    Some on small shad, most on cut asians.

    When you guys are catching them on cut asians are you talking about the big head or silver carp?:confused2:
