    Well, I have been praying for it and finally we are getting some rain. I was starting to wonder if we were ever going to get a nice soaking day of rain. I honestly can't remember how long it has been. Yeah we have had some short thunder storms but that still ain't cutting it. I was very glad to see the rain this morning and I was at the river fishing in under a hour from opening my eyes. It was however a wet slow day. I caught 2 little smallies on roostertails, and 4 channel cat on big shiners and had a bunch of really soft bites today. I had only one nice run but I didn't get him in time because I was rebaiting my other rod ! :angry: Man I hate when that happens. I swear I find myself so paranoid about taking my eyes off of them for even a second, yet everytime I do, when I look back its happening again.:crazy: Something tells me that if I ever have kids they are going to be just like this ! :smile2:
    Well, I had fun and got soaked but I'm very glad to see the rain is here.
    Only one fish was worthy of a picture today and that was this pretty 24 inch channel cat, I caught him on my small rod so he was a lot of fun. Thanks for your time and consideration and best of LUCK !
    Sincerely, Matt AKA DESODE

    I know what you mean. I can sit for hours and nothing happens, as soon as I go start taking a leak the clicker starts going...always!:smile2:

    What shape is the river in? We're flooded here in NC. Got about 6" of rain in two days. But I'm heading back to OHIO tomorrow.:smile2: Can't wait to catch some catfish.
