    :smile2: are yall ready for this ! it started off me getting off graveyard and went right to rising star park . 33 deg. and 190 mile an hour winds. well i was determind to fish so i got my five layers of cloths on and proceded to load the boat in the water . first the rope got hung on my boat light - snap broke it off. well that wasnt no big deal so i headed up river about 3 miles and was going to fish back. well i got to where i was heading and after i got the feeling back in my ears and fingers i droped anchor and cought one baby blue. around 3 lbs. well this is a start - i thought . after about 45 min with not even a nibble i decided to move . I grabed my rope on my anchor and pulled . and pulled and pulled. Wouldnt budge. got hung up good 50 ' down . well i tried everything but it made its new home . Get the knife and well you know. well headed down river to another spot to hit another hole, nothing -All day .Well i decided to try shallow water to see if i could get something to bite - nope. well after nothing all day i decided to head to the ramp . Made a wide turn to get out of there ,and you know somebody cut a bunch of trees in the same area that i was traveling and left them about 13 ft long to be exact. o - i forgot to mention they were also about 12 " under the water . you guessed it . i stopped ontop of them - boat teetering . well about 35 minutes later i got free and made a beline to the ramp. but i did get out of the house today and got to fish :smile2: wish i had a better report for yall but not today. There is alot of deep holes and i marked fish everywhere .just not biteing today . we will get them next time.

    Robert, I can't believe u went out in that kind of weather especially in the river. Now a lake is a different story. Glad u made it back OK. If I hadn't gone to Fordyce to hunt, I would've gone with ya. Just remember that river has no favorites
