Well it was fun anyway but not many fish caught. It was a family reunion thing so actually we had a great trip. All the kids had a great time at Jellystone Park Ė LOTíS to do and super lake.

Iím sure youíve heard of all the flooding in the OKC area, well that didnít help the fishing. The lake was three feet high and muddy. We had a great guide and worked hard, the fish just didnít cooperate. Told us it was his worst day ever on the lake Ė JUST MY LUCK! Anywho he gave us a break so we tipped him even though we did not have a great day of catching. He even offered to load up the boat and take us to a different place. We turned it down cause sometimes itís just not your day. Caught a few but not many keepers.

Hope to get back there someday under better conditions. Itís only about a 5 Ĺ hour drive from Kearney, pulling the boat. Did manage a to catch a few nice keepers on my own but they were the green kind.:eek:

Bill, glad your family had a good trip despite the slow fishing. I didn't know Oklahoma had a Smithville lake there too:eek::)

At least you got out of Dodge with the family; waaayyyy more important than catching fish. I hear after the tournament win Dave now has a guide service on Smithville:)

Bill, sorry to hear your Eufaula trip didn't turn out well, fishing wise. Eufaula is a tremendous fishery. My only trip down there was in late January and we had a blast catching big slabs way up Gaines creek. I know the high muddy water was the problem.
Better luck next time.
