    Friday morning on the Big Monty was an experience that Monty is well known for.:eek:oooh: I took my brother with me and the water beat us all the way across that lake. The waves were so bad it loosened my center console from the deck. So after all that trouble I was committed to catching some fish. We ended up putting 1 fish in the boat a 6 Lb Blue. The highlight of the day was a hook up that I have been telling him about the rod doubled over the side of the boat and it was on. My brother was having a ball then all of a sudden the fish pulls out his trusty razor blade and cut his line. :cool2: Oh that was a big fish. Well that is fishing. We will have to go after them again. Then the rains came and we called it a day.:smile2:

    Monty can beat the best of us, for sure. But when it's on, look out. Glad you had a safe trip. By the way, got bait?

    God Bless All,
    Steve

    I'm with you Scott, I was at Monticello on Friday also, didn't catch any fish couldn't keep the boat still. I left the lake about 10:30am because of the wind. But there will be better days.

    Man, don't it make you mad when they do that. We fished a Tournament on the 28th, in the wind and rain. Didn't have anything to break our line and even lucked up with 72lbs for the 3 fish weigh in. Those guys hold a good tourny. Catawba Catfish Club. Good luck next time out.
