    Looks like the bridge will be open and planning on hitting the Slough on Friday 28th of this month. Anyone want to fish the slough with me back there on the other side. It will be an over nighter:wink:

    I notice some schools is doing that. Mines is after labor day. Lynwoods from a friend is end of this month. The way things are now I have to cut back on a lot of things especially fishing. More than likely you will have a job. I was on edge for a while until end of June and still have to hope our enrollment does not drop, or staff will be moved or dropped.

    I'm there, count me in. That bridge is only open 2 weekends out of the year so you know I'm going. I plan on doing the panfish thing out there this year and only fish for cats at night.:wink:

    Well thats total BS. Hopefuly it will work out. Union should be on top of that for you. Now is not the time to transfer I know that especially losing seniority and pay grade. Thats why Im still in L.A. At least for the time being. :eek:oooh:

    I would like to go to this one, right now lookin like I can. I don't know how to get there, but I'm hopin I can make it. Sounds like a good time,

    Speaking of fishing the Red River up there, I just got a call last night about the Fargo ND area, there is a tournament there every year about the first of Aug time frame, $4000.00 prize for biggest fish. I been invited to it, I can't brag about my abilities tho. I hope I can get there next year for that,

    That is the ticket if you enter good luck on that. A buddy went there and got 20-30 pound channels with ease. Beautiful channels at that. Suppose to be one of the best places around for husky channels.

    They will be opening up the gate. I just talked to Mendota DF&G. Looks like the Monday the 24th-30th:wink: They said it may open up early like the 17th, but are not certain about that:confused2: So it looks like I will head out there early Friday morning on the 28th to fish the otherside of the slough.

    I'll be out there Saturday after my son's football game. Friday if there is no game that weekend. Can't wait for that. It's fun exploring new fishing spots.

    Maybe Bert would be able to come down for that. I know he would like to fish those back canals for some bass, crappie, and gills. That is definitely my game plan. Fred will probably come out too.

    As far as Friday goes, I will try and make it. If not just take a teddy bear with you to cuddle with.:smile2:
