    Day care at the Dodd residence. I like it. I should bring Ethan and he can watch all of them.

    Thanks for the offer on the propane, I'll go ahead and bring mine. Just have to let them know I have it.

    Sounds like Lone needs a name change. Good luck out there tomorrow everyone, I'm looking forward to reading the report already!

    I was able to go do a little scouting this afternoon. I completed my honey-do's around 1:30 so I tossed my quickie boat in the truck and was on the water before 2:00. It was a little cloudy with a slight breeze off and on. The takes were very subtle and I missed several. Had 6 to the net and LDR'd 2 more. They all where nice fish 18-21 inches but only one fought very hard. Fished until 5:00 and then headed home.

    Sounds encouraging, Islander. Thanks for the report. I should be getting up there around 7 or so. I'll be in a green Fat Cat.

    Great time up there today! Was great to meet and hang out with everyone. The brats were a welcome treat at lunch time! I'm glad Steve showed up to help me with the Crown. Sure was a cold one.

    Too bad the fishing didn't cooperate. It was slllloooooowww. I had 2 to hand and 2 ldr's for my efforts. One fish on a leech, one on a pumpkinhead. Nobody seemed to be able to get much going on. But I won't complain... The weather wasn't too horrible, the company was fantastic, and the food/drink was great. Not much to complain about there.

    Yes, a fun day for sure, and a the brat did hit the spot! Thank you. Steve, Roper ,Steve, Gregg, Nick and Steve!
    Even got to say a quick Hi to Stonefish as I rowed for shore and my son's little league baseball tryouts

    I had a fish early on a streamer against the bank and then two fishing. the indicator with a size 14 red chironomid with black bead head. Slow but fun impromptu WFF.COM stillwater outing
