    Were any BOC folks near this twister? I guess it happened an hour or so ago. I was watching channel 7, I guess they are/were on there way to investigate.

    Well, I was out on a hike with my woman when it happened. I wanted to go scouting the GMR down here, and she wanted to come with me. The weatherman said not to expect any rain except for a few isolated spots. It poured on us the whole time. She took it like a champ though. We were out for about an hour and a half, and right at the end, the tornado sirens started going off. I really didn't think nothing of it. But for her, it was time to go back to the car. I guess it was a smart call. This was probably two miles away from tornato.

    This is the second time in a week I have been on the river in a tornado warning. Last Monday night, me and the woman were camping up north on the GMR, when we woke up in our tent at 7:00 am by tornado sirens. One of these days it is going to catch up with me.

    Hope everyone is ok.

    Sounds like we had a few small tornados touch down tonight. From what the reports said they were F0-F1's.

    For circle hooks they are much needed, I need to repaint mine, and put some new tape on them.

    Were they biting at all? I had a feeling they would be moving with the rain we got. It has been a while since it last rained. I had no bait though, have to wait til tomorrow.

    we had a small window in the weather where everything stabled out and fish started hitting, it only lasted about an hour then clouds started rolling back in. hooked into a monster and it spit my bait, dont think i got a good hookset. ended up catching about 8 flatties, biggest was 11lb.

    I personally wouldn't wish that on anyone. :angry:

    They said we had one that touched down here right outside of town and another went straight over ahead but didn't touch down. They said Clarksville got some damage and around Wilmington but we didn't get any. :smile2:

    I drove by Jokers and the carpet store it hit - tore up the carpet store pretty good, the roof was laying 1/2 off the store, down the side and part of it on the lawn, Jokers damage didn't look as bad -
