Well I went to Alabama last week and thought I would be spending alot of time fishing... Boy was I wrong.. I ended up remodeling my grandfathers bathroom and installing a new steel front door and screen door. Along with the repairs to the roof on the house and the Garage... But in the mess of it all I did manage to catch 1, yes 1 lonely channel, but that channel was my first cat of the year!! Also me and RiverBuggy4x4 went to the river bottoms the other day and within the first 5 mins I caught 2 channels back to back and he caught 1. They were not huge but its the start of our 2009 season..
