I had my boat all hooked up this morning and woke to wind gust to 25MPH. Needless to say stayed home and kept busy trying to not think about fishing...LOL

Yes Pete was my Grandfather's brother. Uncle Pete was a great man sucessful in most things that he tried. He was also a man that knew what hard work was and he was very respected by everyone in my family. I wish I could have spent more time with him than I got to. I didn't get down there as much as I should have. Up until 4 years ago I hadn't seen him since I was about 14. I'm 28 now. I was working down there and I decided to stop in and see him. Pete remembered me right away and we sat in the office at the steel place and he told me stories about my Grandfather that I don't think even my Dad, aunts, or uncles even know. Good stuff about when Grandaddy was born about when they were growing up, when they went to war, stuff that I always wanted to know but didn't know who to ask. (Grandaddy died in 1987) I will miss Pete.

today should be a great day to fish around here. I have heard some good reports from Yellow creek. I am very jealous; while I try to stomp out some ignorance here at work at the high school.

DANG Batteries
I was hooked up an left this morning to check out the boat. Just replaced one of the TM batteries and had them all charged up. got to the ramp backed down and low and behold the big motor battery was down. I can't win for loosing. So now I'm goingto have to get another battery. May just take and replace the other TM battey while I'm at it....it's only money...LOL

Didn't want to get out with situation like that with nobody else foolish enough to be out and it started raining. Now the weather forcast if for chance of s**w ( you know that nasty white stuff).

Caught only 3 keepers biggest was 14" 1 lb 9 0z and then a 12" and a 10". Aso had 5 or 6 that was short.
Caught them in 22 ft of water.
Water temp was 49 degrees
Found lots of bait fish, But no any balled up. the bait fish was scattered in long lines.
Caught the above fish within the first hour., And the wind went form 10 MPh to 25 and gusting. it was time to leave.

Ranger375 I had to replace my cranking batter a few weeks ago. And I hope the trolling battery's last at least 2 more year's.

nice fish red, They come from yellow creek?

Going to go Friday to Cedar. Caught 37 2 Saturdays ago. I know where they will be and hope to do very well. The high for Friday is 47, which is the coldest day in the past few weeks, but the sun will be out warming the surface temps. That should be good. I will try and post some pics of the fish we catch.

Cane pole there in the fridge soaking now. Will be supper tomorrow.LOL
I plan on going sauger fishing Thursday or Friday. Also will try out some of the river crappie while I'm there. Should be able to catch them around the dam.

That is unless I get a call to go back to Reel foot to fish Friday. If so I will be there LOL
