Mac, this was a one of the posts I made this morning kind of directed at you. It was on before the server decided to wipe its rear end and remove about ten terabytes of good info. posted here today. To those half dozen folks I repped this morning I am sorry, they disappeared too. Anyhow..... Mac, I know you have a dream fishing trip coming up. We received information here this morning about a drowning of one of our locals in Missouri yesterday. This man, 79 years of age and another buddy of his were backing a trailered boat down a ramp at Lake Tannecomo in Missouri. I think that is near Branson. These guys were seasoned Mississippi River and lake fishers. Many many years of experience. They backed their van down the ramp and it kept going. Into 15 feet of water. One guy got to shore, the other fellow when down. I guess if you are going to go it might as well be doing what you like. I hope I got a beer in my hand. So you old coots out there (myself included) or anybody else for that matter be careful. Mac, your trip will probably be successful. Don't let me read that that 70 lb'er pulled you out the boat.
