    Bruce and I loaded up this morning and headed to the other big M, Murray.:big_smile: When we got there the temp at the marina was 19 degrees and the water temp was 54 degrees. We worked several areas before finding the Smackdown zone and then it was on!:big_smile: We ended the day with 24. We got 2 channels, 1 striper, 20 nice fat, mean pulling blues and 1 15lb Flathead PB for me.:big_smile: I mean guys, We had a GREAT day! We averaged over 10 lbs a fish today for a 240+ lb day.:big_smile:
    All fish were released to make someone else's day.

    I am glad to see Murray yielding to the cat smakin action. :wink:

    I also see that temps in the teens don't keep Team Smackdown huddled up in front of the fireplace and dreaming about doing some cat smackin!

    Ya'll got after it, VERY nice catch!

    240 lbs.:eek:oooh::eek:oooh: AWESOME!!!
