    Took advantage of Capt. Hugh's no 20 pounder guarantee. LOL! Spent the nite on the river with batmans sidekick Randy on the quest for the big blues. Capt. Hugh had a crew on his boat and I fished on Randy's boat with him. Again it was an event I soon won't forget. LOL! The fishin sucked but the effort to catch em was first class. We drifted and we anchored. The 2- 20 pound family fish boated were well deserved. LOL! Had a blast! Both boats were in contact with each other all nite. We tossed eel.shad,gills and perch at em. Marked a ton of fish that all had lock jaw. LOL! One thing that did dissapoint me was the fact that I got no "JIGGIN" time in on this trip. LOL! I begged and pleaded for Randy to please let me have a sabiki rig but he would'nt. LOL! So we were stuck fishin for cats. I do know this for a fact. I will be fishin with those boys again! Its a great time. The company is good and I will conquer that river sooner or later. LOL! Heres a couple of pics of the nites take.

    Sounds like a good time no reel tossing. :roll_eyes: I would love to fish over there but they might as well be in Russia.
