    I'll be on on my way with Blazerjet to Markland Dam here in about 2 hours... so I'll be thinkin' of you folks that ain't fishin' this weekend:roll_eyes:

    BUT.... I will leave y 'all with a new acronym of sorts, it's; "INGS":cool2:

    I won't tell ya what that means till I get back and post some pics (Blazerjet packs a camera.... but no scales lol):wink:

    Yeah good luck to ya. I was down below there just the other night after work fishing from the boat and caught three fish from 1 am til about 8 am. all three small blues in the 5 lb range. from what i have gathered from others who fish there often that the bite is real slow right now. and you have to drift just outside the current from the power generated water to actually do even decently. the skipjack are running a little bit in there so skips shouldnt be a problem

    Well aside from getting food poisoning at the local greasy spoon, loosing Bens anchor with 50ft of rope in 80 ft of water... and, oh yeah,,, those friggin' Zamboni rigs that'll snag or tangle every damn thing in the boat:)angry:) and none bitin' skips, we did whip some @ss compared to alot of folks out there... it was a good time.

    I'd've almost gave my left one for live Gills and a depth finder, but Ben found some fish regardless... good job bro. BTW Ben, it only takes about 25 mins to get to my house from yours.

    @ $200-250 in gas??? It's gonna be a minute before I go back... Some time in Oct-Nov when the heat dies down and I'll feel more like fishin' for Blues.
