    I'm not feeling so hot Willie as I sit here in New York. I called the doctor and he said to take two aspirin and fish with Russ in the riverbend tournament on Saturday. : )

    If I could find a open dock Id talk Mike into go out for a couple hours tonight. But I doubt we can get into Flam. And I hear Hoppies charges though I'm not sure how much. I feel dry docked :sad2:

    If I have the energy Im going to try the Kimswick dike this evening for a few hours. Plus I will get to try out my homemade concrete weights. Poured them in disposable cups and added a piece af galvinized wire to tie on to. They weight roughly 15 to 16 ounces. Hopefully they keep me in place.

    HAHA.... Manny I tried some thing like that awhile back... I poked holes in the dirt, poured it in and inserted trebble hooks to tie on too... It took forever for it to harden up and they didnt hold worth a crap

    Well Willie, I was gonna go. I got off work early, I was gonna pay Hoppy's my 20 bucks so I could beat Manny to that rock dyke , but my 7 year old son DIDN'T WANT TO GO and mom aint home yet. I think I need to get a DNA test done!

    I am not trying to be funny here. Are you serious this place charges 20 bucks to launch? I've never heard of such. The highest place around us is 6 dollars. Just wondering.:roll_eyes:

    Yeah kind of crazy...Deb almost had me convinced we could put in on the cobble stones down town and it would be alright since we wouldn't be out too late. I need to find a ramp closer to the house to get on the river.

    Wellllllll.....this morning, Friday, Andy52 is already out on the river with one of our fishing buddies. I am NOT there....repeat, I am NOT there....LOL. Some people have to WORK....no fun....:angry: !!! As they drove away, they had the audacity to wish me a good day (I could also hear them laughing...sheeesh) Gosh, but I hate seeing the boat go without me. BUT...tomorrow we will be going out, hot or not and I will have my weekly fishing fix :smile2:

    :smile2: I know that feeling! I work every other weekend and Mike will go on Saturday nights when I'm working. But unfortunately he is just as dry docked as me if we don't find a ramp. And 20 bucks is alot but considering 20 or 200 for first year at boat club 20 sounds easy to swing. We would try up north but dang we would spend that same 20 in gas driving all the way up there pulling the boat. I've noticed gas just keeps creeping up, its 2.60 here now. :sad2: Although cheaper than last year at this time.

    Thanks and ouch! I wonder if anyone has ever approached Hoppie and asked if they have a yearly ramp fee that maybe cheaper. Lakes in KY will do that kinda like the boat club. It will be 6 bucks to launch or buy a ramp access pass for so much. We need a sweet talking club member like Kutter or Cuz to have a chat, I might even buy a Hoppies Marina t -shirt or two to do some advertising. :wink::smile2:
