    There's some pretty good ones in there, now finding them is a different story.

    Well Hawk and I went doen to Lake Bloomington yesterday and caught eight crappie and one bluegill, he loves bass fishing and crappie fishing, I prefer catfishin myself but enjoy going out with him. It was hot and sunny and we got off the lake and home just before the rain hit. Had a great time.
