    I'm pumped boys. Myself, Catpound, Mattoonboy4 and 3 others have a cabin reserved in the Barren creek area for memorial day weekend. We will be running lines all weekend with two boats. Last year we boated a 51 lb flatty and 2 blues over 20. Hopin for the same luck. Let me know if any of you are going to be in our kneck of the woods that weekend. we'll be frying fish all weekend :D

    Ryan you are in a good area of the river. Several creeks above and below you. You should do well again.

    I'm guessing both boats will land some pigs that weekend. I just hope my boat is on the winning end. It will be nice being able to sit and sip bloody marys while the losers prep breakfast every morning :D
