    Hey, Dad and a couple of his friends are wanting to meet up and fish the big river the weekend of 8/15. His buddies are bringing a boat, but I don't feel like dragging mine over for dad and I. Any of you guys feel like a couple of guests in your boat those 2 days? I'm happy to provide some gas money and throw the net, dad said he'd be happy to pull the anchor, so we'll earn our keep:smile2: I'm pretty sure that's the plan, I'll post up more as I figure out what's going on exactly. I may wind up bringing mine over anyway if the kids want to come, but I wanted to check out options. Thanks!

    Well my dad and his buddy are supposed to be coming in town that weekend to go catfishing with me. His plans change pretty often so I will let you know. If he doesn't come in then you guys are more than welcome in my boat (if I get her running again).

    Branden....Is this another one of them 48 hour marathon fishing things? Cause I can't hang with that. It just kicks my behind to fish all night. Plus..... can't plan that far in advance or anything but I may be able to cover a bit of it. Have to see when it gets closer.....:roll_eyes:

    Well Branden, I got the blessing from Mrs Rat, so.....................come on over! I can go Friday the 15th, I just have to be home by Saturday the 16th at 1230 pm, something about Mrs Rat's bridal shower or something......not sure what I have to do with that, but I'm not arguing....I have her blessing for Friday night!

    Thanks guys! I'm still waiting on those guys to finalize their plans. Depending on who's coming I may have to drag the boat over anyway, but if the guest list is short it'd be great to be able to hang with one of you guys. Bill/Ryan, I'll definitely give you a shout so we can hook up whether we bring a boat or not!

    Skip, it'll probably be all-night trips. Shoot, sometimes the bite doesn't start till 3AM:wink:

    The full moon brings out the crazy cats! I liked the full moon bite and hot weather, it seems to put the feed bag on.

    Hmmm, I'm still trying to figure the full moon thing out. I'm starting to think the bite is good all the way up to the full moon. Then after the full moon it' takes a day or 2 to get back on it. Still working on it though......

    Well I can tell you that I was out during the full moon and then a few days after the full moon. Fishing after the full moon was not nearly as good as it was during the full moon!
