    Since I cut firewood three days this week, and worked on the farm the other two days, I was bound and determined to go fishin' today. I had some gizzard shad in the refrigerator that needed using. The forecast was for rain, but rain doesn't bother me much. My grandson spent the night with us and he was chomping at the bits to wet some hooks. When we awoke to rain this morning, I called my pard, BAREFOOTFISHN, and he said he wasn't going in the rain. That settled it, so I decided not to go. About mid morning, the rain stopped and I decided to go anyhow. By the time I got the boat loaded up, the rain started back up. By the time we got to the landing, it was pouring. We hit the river with high hopes, but I guess the fish didn't want to be out in the rain, and we got no bites. Soaked to the bone, I told my grandson it was time to go. He made me proud by saying "lets tie up one more time". :smile2::crazy::eek:oooh:

    You should have brought an extra rain jacket for the fish Bill, then maybe they would have jumped in the boat. At least you were there trying, I chickened out with the forcast and cancelled my trip to the lake, and was regretting it all morning...lol

    Bill I hate ya'll didn't catch anything but you got to spend some time on the river with your Grandson. Layla looked like she was ready to go home.
    Maybe the next time you take your Grandson the weather will be better. I got a feeling that the river will out of the banks next week.

    Know the feeling bill I think the reason they didnt bite was because they didnt want to go out in the rain lol.

    Don't let the dog fool you. She is more hardcore than any of us. First thing she did when she got off the boat was to run through, roll in, and bite the water in every mud puddle she could find. She LOVES the water. She's so foolish, i don't see her having a long life expectancy. :sad2: Grandson Justin said thanks for the nice words!
