    Pat and I tried to assault Lake Marion Wed. We've never been there but said " let's give it a try". I think the weather assaulted us with a 102 deg. index.:eek:oooh: :crazy:
    But, as always, we had a great time.:big_smile: We started off chasing the shallow water bite. When that didn't happen, we went after humps and holes. We ended with 12 nice cats from 8 to 15 lbs., and we lost a couple of good fish.

    We learned alot and had a great day!:big_smile: We anchored and gave each spot it's time as we hoped that would produce a trophy. All fish caught on heron and perch.

    PS Pat did get a PB gar and turtle!:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    Did the heron make a loud squawk when threw your cast net over him?

    Sorry guys. Spelling has never been my strongpoint. Change that to herring. But don't think I wouldn't try a heron, if I thought it would catch some big ones!

    Think Im gonna have to head that way my self next week sometime......maybe head out wed. and stay through Sunday. Gonna try to get a place at Blacks instead of Canal Lakes this trip. Just got back from the N/C mountains for a week and ready to see a rod double over. Have a real nice mountain home for sale in West Jefferson N/C if any of you brothers are interested. Left the top of the mountain heading back home at 630 am thursday morn........temp was a nice 58 deg.........got back in to Savannah Ga around 130 pm and it was a blistering 101 deg !!!!
