Had a great day , but it started by finding out my fishing partner decided not to go and called at 11:30 PM to let me know *>:(
no problem I can handle everything ! got to the ramp for inspection and tyhe wait was a bitr long but to be expectid, up walks the IMFAMOUS STONESFAN, THE ONE AND OLNY STEVO79 AND THE INSPECTOR GADGET MAN , ALL IN THE SAME BOAT ! ;D ;D

we took off and everyone in a boat headded for the river arm, I tried to troll in the 5mph zone hoping for a fresh plant to grab my line *:)
didnt happen *so I trolled the better part of the day by the dam as a fleat of boats were in the arm , caught 2 nice fish at the dam and finally decided I was going to troll the arm . caught the rest of my limit their .

flasher and dodger with threadded night crawlers were the ticket for me .
had fun with the radio chatter .

Way to go jimmy, Glad to see you made it out there and stroke them. Sorry about the buddy missing the trip, looks like his lost. Cool pics, looks likes stonefan, junefirst and steveo had it going on. Would have been out there but I blew the motor in my truck and won't have the new in till next week. PM if your buddy flakes on you again. Have fun out there.

Saw and talked to quite a few Sniffers today. It was something to see Jimmy working the boat up the river arm, with the wind blowing, fish on, in traffic, with just his big motor. Nice Job out there, you're the man!

Oh, BTW, you never did toss me that beer! ;)

02-07-2009, 07:01 PM

Like JJ said, I fished today with Stonesfan and Steveo79. *What a great day on the water, perfect weather, fish were a bonus. *We started at the rock wall for old time sakes. *Little slow start for us, in the first hour we had only hooked the bottom.

Couple hours into it Steveo gets a nice fish on but loses it at the boat. *I believe I heard Steveo question Stoney's netting skills but I'm not telling. *We stayed in that area for a couple hours picking up several fish. *We worked lots of different areas and finally picked up our 15th fish late in the afternoon. *All the fish were caught between 5 and 10 feet, mostly on a crawler harness.

Here's some pics

Stoney's big fish of the day not ready to come in. *Believe it was 19 inches.

The big fish of the day.....and Stoney.......and the lucky HAT!

Like Steveo said it was interesting to watch jumpinjimmy fight a fish in the wind, then net the fish.

Stonesfan and Steveo with 5 of the fish for today

fish junky and his crew had there fish pretty early and headed in. *June First and other sniffers were out there today. *Some lively radio chat at times.

Thanks for the picture JJ!
Good to talk to all of you on the radio today, we started off at the dam also, then headed into the river arm.
ended the day with 9 to the boat and 4 LDR.
our hot set up for the day was an orange Apex at 8-10' ;D

Forgot to mention !
then while trying to retrieve it I almost ran acrost another boats lines so I turned so hard my tiller handle stuck to the back of the boat and was doing circles and have got to nominate my self for the total idiot operator award. :o
I am shure the guys in that boat were saying what a dolt! ;D

02-07-2009, 07:18 PM
Nice reports guys, sounds like you had fun and got some fish along the way. That's what it's all about.

02-07-2009, 07:18 PM
Man I'm bummed I didn't get to hang with you guys today. Mama overruled me today but I will be there at the crack of dark tomorrow.

Figures Stoney would have that damn straw hat on!

My Wife is Valerie, she is the secratary in the club. Hey if you ever have room, I would like to fish with you at Pardee. We can go in our boat or yours....
