    I just went out to Ft. Gibson dam with the small gear to see if the sandies were running yet. I took the wrong gear! Even if they were, I couldn't fish for them as they were bringing in spoonbill one right after the other. They were in the 30 to 50lb range. I was there about 20 minutes and counted 12 spoonbill landed in that time frame. Now I have to work the next 8"FRIGGIN" days in a row!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:angry:

    Tell them you got that highly contagious "bill fever" and it would be best if you took a few days in a row off. :wink:

    Finally got to sneak off an go to Ft. Gibson dam at 02:30 this morning. The spoons were still there. Snaggen a 30 pounder in the tail first cast. Got a few more after that. I was just there an hour. I'll be back out there Wed. evening, if my knuckles on my left arm will stop dragging the ground!
