    I went out 3 times in the past week and I got shut out 2 of those trips. On those 2 trips the new guys both got a fish. Kyle has a broken neck was able to land a nice 25 lb last Thurs night, his first flat ever.
    Then on Saturday John got his first one to the bank. He had lost 2 nice ones before when his line broke on 1 and his knot slipped on another. He was able to get a nice 32 lb for his first fish.
    Last night me, John, and Mickey went out. I scored my first double header. As we were netting my first fish my other pole took off. I landed a 22 lb and a 25 lb. John had to leave about 11:30 to get some sleep for work. It wasn't 5 minutes after he left Micky got a nice 37 lb. That was a good fight as Mickey got it on 25 lb line. I was using a balloon for a bobber set about a foot off the bank and Mickey was tight lining about 5 feet off the bank. All the fish were caught on bass, including the 2 previous trips.

    Nice fish! Sounds like a blast. Nothing like getting on some fish after a few nights of nothing.

    Ya it does, but my wife is allergic to DEET so I can't use bug spray. I can't take the chance getting on anything at home she'll touch.

    Seems that way sometimes. The ones I take out I have known for quite a while, some I fish with regularly, some are new, none I have known less than 2 years. Like this past week, John I call my second son, I have known him since he was 3 and kinda became a father figure to him after his parents divorce. He comes to me to get advice and brag about things, and even see if what I think before he does things. Kyle is his best friend and I have known him almost as long. My buddy Tom, me and him went to school together and have been hunting and fishing together for over 30 years, the only deer seasons we missed hunting together was when I was in Germany. Mickey and Randy I met on here 2 years ago and fish with both regularly, not just cats but all fish.
    These are all stand up guys and I am privileged to have so many good friends to fish with.
