    I fished at James Rd about 3 hours this morning before joining the guys at the pipe site. Caught a few channels on clams until I ran out of bait. Looked like everybody was catching lots of channels today.

    It was very nice to meet all you guys Friday and today. You guys are a real hoot to be around. We will need to meet up with you all again. I guess Mudcat and I are trying to go out there Monday to fish early.

    Well recuperated a lil over night. Had a great time out there. Ray's chili verde and his wifes egg rolls where the hit of the food. Let me tell you they were good. :wink: Thanks Ray for coming down and feeding us. The hats are awesome too.
    Well Had a good time. Fullmoon took the pool for largest cat. It was an 8 1/2 pound channel on live crawdad. Don (fish04) stopped by sunday and shot the s*@% with me and Ray Sunday morn.
    Weather was beautiful friday. It actually got lil nippy at night:cool2: Saturday was a lil warmer but doable. There was a breeze blowing and shade so that helped. It turned out great:wink:

    Sounds like a great time, guys.
    I wanted to be there but I was needed elsewhere.
    Hope I'll be able to come next time.

    Yea I had a nice time out there (as always:wink:-lol) - I'm at Big Sean house right now, came over here yesterday after I left Mendota. We went to get something to eat Sunday after leaving the slough & I hung-out at his place after that. I got to meet Sean's son ("The Little Champ") & we talked a little football & let me tell you, he knows his sports (Sean school him well on that :wink:). I will be able to give you most on the Gathering & put together a photo album on it when I get home.

    Take it easy fellows & Thanks Robb for putting that together for all of us :0a31::0a31:

    Hey gang, I sure had a great time.... Actually, it was the first time that I got out of town camping without the RV in years.... did the sleep thing in the car as Bert and I have problems on the hard ground.... I brought some things to make the experience "cooler" and ended up not needing the big fan and the "Inverter" that I brought....

    Actually had to much beer, with 30 cans for the two nights that I was there....Had some burbon to cover the evenings...LOL

    Met some nice guys that were new to me... "pistol Pete" and friend Mai, "fullmoon"... (the butt man) who took notes of everyting trying to save his voice box....

    Good to chat some with "Fishernet" Don..."fish04", and of corse the regulars...Bert, Robb, Jaime, and the "in-and-out" Captn. Steve that made his usual show-up with a good show of cats in tow....:wink:

    here are some pics....
