    giving up on the pursuit of bigguns.... spent too much on BIG gear, a great boat, traveling, time from the family etc..... used to be a jar of Bowker's meant nites of catching a hundred dinks and that was fun. tired of trying to keep up with the big timers in ohio like mellon and flathunter jack..... and the catking never told the the secret to catfish NIRVANA .... so i got some looper rigs and Bowkers and i'm gonna start having fun again.

    Dip don't give up so easily. If you can make it to zanesville, I can put you on a big fish. I only fish for flatheads with 10/o hooks ,80 pound line,Abu Garcia 7000's and bait big enough for a bass fisherman to mount on the wall. call me in the spring, that equipment won't go to waste.

    Ya know it's a sad day when you are fishing with stink bait and still get skunked. 3 lakes in 2 weeks and not a bite to be found. :crying:

    Dip's going back to his roots huh. I suppose now I have to start looking in the classifieds for a new sidekick job. Anyone know of someone in need of a good sidekick? Jack, ya care to upgrade. You can't pack 150lbs on my back like ya can the mellon but I can get bait everytime.

    If you guys plan something lemme know and I'll come and whine all night. (huh king)

    "all work and no play makes jack a dull boy"

    it also increases mellons chance of smokin his behind this year. Oh and Jack? Aren't you glad you turned down that promotion with raise so you didn't have to work so much. :rolleyes: :crying: :mad:
