    In case anyone wants to join in on the fun, I will be launching at Flamm City, Sunday evening to hopefully snag some spoonies. I think Ryan said he was gonna try to make it over after he dropped his son off, and Willie might join in too. :wink:

    You know that I will be there. I just have to wait until around 5ish for his momma to come and get the boy. Did you get any hooks today Gary?

    I was out on Wednesday and it was still up and very muddy with a lot of debris coming down. It should be dropping, I whent over the Missouri today and the trail dykes were back out of the water. That was probably a welcome sight to my ole buddy Bob.

    I got some hooks. I bought the last ones that Dunn's had. I think I got 8 or so of the 10/0 trebles. I think I already have a couple here already to add to that. I just got back from the Truman ramp, got bored and had to go for a drive, and the water dropped alot. I was down there Sunday, and it was up in the parking lot. Now the boat ramp is actually out of the water, so it's dropped at least 8 or 10ft or so. Just my guess.:wink:

    You ain't a kidding! The last fish I fought weighed somewhere in the 60lb range!:big_smile: I'm ready for that feeling again. If all else fails, we can go out and tear the asian's a new backside!:wink:

    John swore that was an asian that day that did that to my thumb, but I think I just snagged something. I've snagged many a asian last year during the snagging opener, and I ain't never had one hit that hard.:smile2: Who knows, It may have been an asian. If it was, it was a godzilla asian!:smile2::eek:oooh:

    Either way, I bet that fish taught you a valuable lesson on not using your thumb when snagging.:smile2:

    I always use my thumb, I just don't troll as fast as we were going that day. Just the speed of the boat alone, was pulling line out on the reel, and I had the drag cranked all the way down.:confused2:

    So on Sunday can you hook a guy up with a couple of those hooks.:smile2:

    Well I am gonna go to bed and just leave it there at 999, that seems like a good round number. ;)
