Well, you all probably know that it's been a pretty rough year for me so far. Ryan, (Stlcatman) and I went fishing last Sunday at Alton, and I was skunked again, except for one sturgeon. I pretty much gave up on fishing for the year, and was set into deer hunting mode, especially since the cold front moved in. Cuz called yesterday, and wanted to know if I wanted to go out. I figured, what could it hurt, so I met him at the ramp after work. So I get to the ramp, and the whole evening starts off with bad luck. He backs me down the ramp into the water, and the boat won't start. The batteries are dead. After a little examining, we realize he has a bilge full of water after being in a heck of a rain storm, and the batteries were covered, and dead. We pulled the plug, but it was clogged. We finally got the clog out, and the water drained. We then had to use his truck to jumpstart the Yamaha. Long story short, we then head 10 miles up river and fish a rock revetment. As soon as we pulled up close, we painted several big fish on the bottom so we decided to fish it. We weren't there no more that 20 minutes, when both of our rods bent over at the same time. In fact I thought that the fish Cuz was fighting got tangled up in my line, so I set my rod back in the holder and helped Cuz get his 20lb fish in the boat. I then looked up at my rod to grab it and reel back up and all I see it line heading up river. I grabbed it, and all of a sudden it was about yanked out of my hand. There was a fish on mine too. After a 10 minute fight or so, we had it in the boat. It just shattered my previous PB. She weighed in a 64.3 lbs. All the turmoil I've been through and all the crap I have recieved are well worth it. Thanks to the famous "Cuz" for getting me out there tonight, and getting my new PB.
