    Met up with JayBee and Ralph at o'dark thirty AM Saturday. We killed 'em in the morning even though we could smell the banana bread Kenneth and crew were baking over on his boat. Jeff boated a monster that would be either me or Ralph's new PB...67.8#! Ralph also got a pig that went 58#! I had two 28's, and was looking for a third so the other two could recommence to catching monsters. The bite unfortunately shut down mid-day, and didn't pick back up until just before dark. We dropped Ralph off around noon, and Jeff and I boated a couple more 30's to end the night.

    Day's tally: 67.8, 58, 37, 37, 34, 29, 28, 28, 18, 15

    We also fished Sunday morning for a few hours in the cold rain. Didn't catch anything and got at best one dink nibble at each spot. I'm sure there were some monsters feeding somewhere on the river, we just didn't find them. Ended up killing my phone and camera which were sitting in my "waterproof" pants pocket.

    It was a great time all around, and catching nice fish was icing on the cake!

    Nice Fish. What a head on that big one of JB's. Question for the motley crew,,,In the picture of Josh holding the 37,,,there's a pole with a corkscrew looking deal on it. Is that something to retrieve a snagged line or some kind of sick electric catfish prod?

    Congratulations!!

    Lucky Charm Ralph,,,,,,,,,formally known as Springtime 2009 Banana Man is welcome on my boat. That's twice now I have seen Ralph in the last month so unlike Elvis,,,,he is really alive. Good to see you back on the water Ralph.
