    Funny to hear about how people used to own outboards vs big fancy $45,000 aluminum boats and carry them down the bank. Most people act surprised if I carry a kayak or a canoe down a bank line.

    Sad. Those huge pulse flows brought up nothing then. Thanks for the report, Iíve been trying the upper river here and there, and same results. Nobody home. Polar opposite to last year.

    Re: Moke 10-5
