    I didn't catch squat only thing i caught was more bait to go into the bait bucket i went there with 12 used 2 for bait and caught 1 bull head, so he went into the bait bucket so i didn't lose much bait. i had one hell of a run tho don't really know what it was. i didn't hit it cuz i thought it was jus the bait takin my cork under but when it came back outta the water it went flyin about 4 feet into the air. that was the extent of my fishin trip, and its snowing like hells gonna freeze over round here and i don't wanna be out freezin my gonads off so i haven't gone again yet.

    Well at least you have been out this year which is more then I can say:crying: I think I will try the cottonwood by Marion resv. this weekend, as long as the weather stays decent. I heard the the wipers are hitting out there fairly strong. Will let you know how I do later.

    Well I went out Sunday morning for a few hours. It was cold and windy! Caught one 3lb channel and maybe a cold.lol It was nice to finally get out this year though and get the lines wet. Drove past Broken Bridge and it was packed! I am guessing that somebody must have been having some luck out there. Had to get back so I didn't have a chance to find out with what though.

    Just east of Broken bridge on the reservoir. I won't be going out there for awhile as I plan not to travel out that way for atleast a month or so. You will have to keep me updated on the fishing there.

    I like the old roadway at Marion. Lots of big cats in the trees.
