    Everybody, sit down for a second. Ok, all of you sitting? Alright, I went fishing today. Not a cloud in the sky. I know, cause I caught a good sunburn. Does this make winter officially over?
    Originally, the plan was to put the boat in and tie it to the dock so I could work on the trailer. I brought everything I needed, except new bunks boards. Most everything turned out fine, except I need new bunk boards, of course. No sense working on the trailer till I get them installed.
    That freed me up to take the Kutters Katter out for it's maiden 2008 journey. Started on the first turn of the key and ran great all morning. The river was down a lot since I had seen it last. Local told me it had dropped a foot overnight. Helped move the dock further out and clear away debris before heading out.
    Didn't take long finding bait once I figured that the shad were not up in the creeks, but sitting at the entrance. Found plenty more than I needed in about 10-15 minutes. I tried out the 12 ft cast net for the first time after first buying it in 2003. I had been able to work myself up to the 10 ft'er last year. Found out I need to stick with the 10 ft'er awhile longer, or grow a ft taller. Doesn't matter, they both wear me out after only a few casts.
    Went upstream a few miles and tried the rip rap, no luck, drifted down to the entrance to St Joachim Creek and anchored out. Fished for a couple hours before heading back to the ramp. Didn't get skunked, but didn't catch anything worth weighing or taking a pic of.
    Other than the burn, it was a very nice day to be out on the river.

    Way to go Tom! You didn't go up the Meremac today did ya? I saw a guy in a boat like yours heading down the Meremac today at around 6:30. Aaron and I whent out tonight as well. I lost the biggest catfish that I have ever had on. After fighting him for about 1 minute the hook pulled loose. Man I feel sick to my stomach still.

    Don't listen to him Ryan, you will relive the loss over and over and over........:smile2:

    I am still cryin over the big one that trashed my driftmaster and broke my 50 lb leader all in one split second when I had my drag locked down. That fish grows in proportion every time I revisit the dreadful memory of that fateful day..... CHEERS!:smile2:

    He is up to somewhere in the 100 lb range right now and I still don't ever think I will be right again.

    I don't know Jason, I have just been sulking around and listening to a lot of old country music. I guess if I look on the bright side I still have my truck and dog.
