    PRETTY GOOD NIGHT. WE LEFT AT SIX OCLOCK AND WAS HOME BY MIDNIGHT. FISHED FOR FIVE ACTUAL HOURS, WITH NO BOAT PROBLEMS. THAT IN IFS SELF IS A MINOR MIRACLE . BOATED NO FISH TILL SEVEN THIRTY ON OUR NORMAL DRIFT PATTERN IN PAINT CREEK ,WHICH IS THE CHANNEL OF THE CREEK ENTRANCE. LOTS OF SMALL TUGS BUT NO FISH ,VERY ABNORMAL FOR US ON CIRCLE HOOKS. SWITCHED 8 O'S FOR SIX 0'S AND STARTED HOOKING INTO A FEW DINKS. MOVED DOWN TOWARD THE DAM AND DRIFTED ALONG THE CHANNEL BETWEEN 10 AND 15 FEET OF WATER AND HOOKED HALF A DOZEN AROUND TWO AND A HALF POUNDS. CLOSER TO THE DAM WE STARTED HOOKING A FEW OVER FOUR POUNDS. MADE THE TURN AT THE BEACH AND STARTED UP THE DEEP SIDE PULLING THROUGH ABOUT TWENTY FEET OF WATER,STEEP SIDE WITH LOTS OF COVER ALONG BANK. HOOKED SEVEN IDENICAL FISH ALL BETWEEN SIX AND SIX AND A HALF POUNDS. FOR THE NIGHT WE ENDED UP WITH 23 FISH THE LARGEST WEIGHED SIX POUNDS AND TEN OUNCES. FIVE HOURS OF PRETTY GOOD FISHING . PUT THEM ALL BACK TO CATCH NEXT TIME.

    That sounds like a great trip! Congrats and thank God that you didn't have boat problems. Let me know when you get out there again. Are you looking at fish any of the other events?
