    No cats for me and the wife last night. Oh well, maybe we were doing something wrong. Better luck next time hopefully...

    We went Friday night put out 15 jugs and 6 poles in
    Fished all night and half of Sat. grand total 1 snaper,1 soft shell, 2 huge GAr, one drum.
    Just not biting never have done good when then river is going down maybe next time. But it was nice to get away and enjoy the outdoors.

    Yes, I am admittedly spoiled. She fishes, goes deer hunting, target shooting, even reloads ammo. Not to mention she is a good cook, and loves a good action movie. I have no complaints:)

    Don't feel bad...got skunked Friday night as well.

    The temps dropped to just below 50 that night (was in the 70's all week). It was windy too, and the water was choppy. Not a bite. Just how it goes sometimes.

    Don't feel too bad, if you look up "skunked" in the dictionary you will see my picture. I didn't even know my clickers worked until a large beaver tangled up my line and took off. He was about 1/2 inch too short too.

    My last trip, was last Sunday. 2 poles were set for catfish and 1 I had a jig on. Caught 2 sandbass and that was it. Not quite a skunk, but sure wasnt what I was hoping for.

    Don't feel bad it happens to everyone sooner or later. Next time you probably won't be able to keep your poles in the water. Good luck.
