    Jimmy Johnny and I swooped in on Monty today like the Huns outta the mountains :crazy: We cleaned up on the dinks, and lost count at 20 or so. We did manage a meager few 3# - 5#, and one 12# that I caught by accident :eek:oooh:

    We were drifting in a new area when Jimmy got one of his rods hung up. So I jumped up to bring in one of my rods so it wouldn't get hung up with him. As I was reeling in it felt like I got hung up too, so I started to try to break my line free when suddenly the "snag" started to pull back! And quite vigorously, too! A couple of minutes later and we had this beautiful 12# blue in the boat, where is got his picture taken, a ceremonial smack on the head, and released. We were hoping to tie into something larger today, but we had a great time and can't complain about that :smile2:
