    Quote from Ka_c4_Boom:"vern wanted me to go today but i had plans so expect kelly to have a new avatar lol they took my boat .thanks goes out to all of ya my hat dont fit lol" (end quote)


    That's "Kelli". Anyway, I probably won't have a new avatar yet. I only caught an 8lb blue( estimated weight---you guys need a scale). I caught it out of your new honey hole:tounge_out: . Vern didn't get anything, but he did grab the pole for me. Boy, you really got to watch that man. He'll take over your pole. Glad to finally get out on the water again. Thanks for the use of the boat.

    Oh, by the way. what's the talk about your hat not fitting? I'm surprised you Parrish boys can even get your heads through the front door.:big_smile:
