    Well Tkyhunter and I went fishing on the Mississippi friday used live shad. We only got to fish about 3 hours, but she managed to catch the only blue that bit about a 5 pounder. We had a great time though, although it was a little cold running down river. Once we stopped to fish (which wasn't soon enough for Tkyhunter) the weather was nice although cloudy. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, we hope to get back on the river soon!

    Earl thanks for the report. You all are tougher than me. I sat at home by the fire all day. Caught nothing.:big_smile:

    Went friday again, my nephew has been asking to go. Wouldn't you know it I could barely catch shad, only got five but really didn't need them. All we managed were a couple of half hearted bites off one dike. I join the ranks of the skunked. "Still had a good time though"

    It was only fair, I had to work. The angel's were looking out for TONTO's well being cause the Mrs. would get mighty cranky if he had returned home with tales of glory! No lectures about being a poor sport ......, I am one!
