    Went out this morning with my baby girl and well, I sure wish the tourney was today instead of last Saturday! Bait was a breeze, and then caught 9 total fish, 5 of which were over 30 pounds! That's right, 5 of them were bigger than the little girl that was with me! :smile2::smile2: When I landed the first pig, I realized that I had forgotten the camera at home! :angry:

    I guess I was to worried about NOT forgetting all the drinks and snacks for the little fart that I plum walked out of the house without it! Oh well, now I have a nice little sunburn and the stench of cut bait all over me! :roll_eyes::smile2::smile2:

    I sure wish I was still out there! :roll_eyes::big_smile::smile2::smile2:

    If they were only 30lbs, would they have been big enough for you to keep in the tourney or would you have released those dinks as well?:smile2:

    That would have been a tough decision, I guess I would've consulted with my partner Stitch! :smile2::smile2::smile2:

    Thanks guys, I sure wish I would've had the camera today, to get some pictures of Skylar and those fish would have been great! She kept asking me about where they were going when I put them back in the water, I told her that they go back to their home, then she ask "to their family" and I'd chuckle and tell her yeah! It was so much fun! :roll_eyes: I guess there will me more to come!

    As far as the surgery, this should "HOPEFULLY" be a quick recovery, it's on my wrist. The shoulder surgery in December is the one I'm NOT looking forward to. :sad2::sad2::sad2:

    Nice job Bill! Good luck with the surgery. I think a few of us could get you back on the water soon after. I don't mind throwning the net for bait or reeling the fish in for you!!! :big_smile: Give me a couple more weeks and we'll get out there in the new boat.

    Good luck with the surgery Bill. Make sure if he gives you stitches to keep Kyle away from the knots.
