I went over around cheatham dam on sat morning at daylight. Picked up some shrimp and chicken for bait. Launched the boat a little after daylight and had to stay around the ramp for maybe 30 minutes as the fog was THICK! :sad2: Good thing tho...as there was a decent school of shad right next to the ramp, so i castnetted a few of those. After the fog lifted enough to see the front of the boat oooh: .. I went to some areas that i hadn't fished before so i did quite a bit of roaming around lookin at the finder before i settled on a spot. The current was pretty strong and there was a LOT of debri in the water...it kept grabbin my lines. well anyways i had a few hits on shrimp and live shad...but didn't catch anything. I had a massive chunk of chicken on my biggest pole. i secured everything to move to another spot and as i was moving on up the river...i noticed by dog makin some strange movements out of the corner of my eye. I quickly glanced back at my boxer...and she was shakin her head, with chicken and fishin line hangin out of her mouth! :angry: OH CRAP...i slammed the throttle into idle and grabbed her to calm her down...fortunately she was lip hooked and since it was one of the 6/0 gama circles the barb had not penetrated..i'm guessing cause the hook is so thick....i pulled the hook out and she was fine...But i got to experience a few moments of horrow as i initially thought the hook was lodged in her throat. The wind started kickin up a bit..and i felt sick about what had happened..so i headed to the house.
