    Yup, Dan's the man, if you check my profile you'll see a pic of a Hawg we caught together, we've caught a lot of fish together. He can show ya a thing or two about fishing, we're all gonna have a good time. I was just watching the weather and they're saying some rain, I just need to check when and how much, see what we're looking at. Anyone else up for the fishing? Join in! Can't wait, I got the fever!

    Weather Looking better as the weekend nears :big_smile:..

    Local weather has taken rain out of the Forecast. Online weather sites showing possible rain at nite and we would be fishing the right before the Front :big_smile::big_smile::big_smile:..

    Just hope they have the forecast correct for once..

    Hey guys! Im coming too, just dont know when?! Im really looking forward to learning some pointers from you guys. I dont know much about flatties or Sangchris But Im looking forward to it. Is the name of the point we're going to fish marked? I dont know how to get around the lake very well. As far as I see right now they arent calling for rain during the day, should be a good time!

    Alright guys, Ill look for the ramp and then see if I cant find you all. Ive seen the east and west ramps there before so Im sure I can find the other too. Ive got a couple poles I like that Ill bring for me... an Abu 6000 and another I like both with 50 lbs. braid so hopefully thatll work for flatties. Im about an hour out so I SHOULD be there sometime in the morning, probably not too early though. I work in Auburn right now, just got off in fact.. was thinking of heading up there today after work but decided not to. Probably should have though, could have figured out where to go. See you guys!

    This is Charlie's wife, they're out on the lake (they have been out there since about 12) and wanted me to check the messages to see if everyone is still able to make it. Looks like yes so I'll go ahead and call them back! Good luck tomorrow everyone. You guys should have a great time! :big_smile:
