    October is my favorite month to fish and it's finally here. Been a pretty slow week at Griggs for me overall. Bankfished for about two hours this afternoon and was beginning to wonder if i was gonna catch anything when a boat cruised past the area i was fishing. It was Tom H. heading in from a few hours drifting. Said he boated 6 channels. Was chatting with him at the ramp when i heard the bell on my rod tip ringing. Made a mad dash to my spot in time to reel in this 27" 6 lb channel. Caught him on a goldfish head.Thanks Tom for weighing him and snapping the pic. That was the only bite i got. Beautiful day to be out though. :big_smile:

    I see a water trail Garrett...were you in a boat again?

    If not, that ramp sure does look familiar.:wink: That's where I go to catch my baby shad.:big_smile:

    I was bankin' it Rob. That water trail is from TomH's boat. He took the pic for me.

    It's a longshot Garrett, but do you happen to drive a van?

    It only just when I'm with you, man - it could be anyone, anywhere, anytime! :smile2:

    Thanks! And now that I've actually got something to put it on, it's that much sweeter.... talk about timing!
