    Sorry to hear you had to get off the river early today. I don't know what it is with the wind this winter. I'm not sure if it's worse this year than in years past, or if I'm just paying more attention to the wind since I fish alot. But these past few weeks, the wind has really been bad.

    Better luck next time JW. And hopefully mother nature will cooperate better!

    But hey, you got to fish for a few days straight and still bagged a few bigguns. Better than the alternative of sitting at home or worse being at work!

    Thanks for the reports and pictures. I know you two shared some great moments together out there and had a safe trip back home. That is what life is all about. The wind is the the part of mother nature that has the most effect on us catfisher men/women. But every trip I go on is a learing experence. You never quit learning....
