    since I was typin on up anyway. writer deserves the right to have half the story off a degree or two because of missing brain cells.

    Dip had last night a 25.4 male with a gigantic head, and a 25.5 pretty gal. Also a fat 8# channel and a few others I think. Myself I landed a 11 # flat, a drum and half an 8 lb flat. I say half cuz it was snagged up and when I was pulling it was comming out of the water but something was pulling the other way. Turns out Dip had the same fish hooked in the same corner of the mouth only his line was around a snag and was pulling against me which lifted the fish out of the water. So, we caught a fish together I suppose. Also, one of the channels dip caught had one of my gammy circle hook in opposite corner of it's mouth. this fish hammered my gill and got me snagged up then shortly after went and ate dips shad.

    that is my version

    I skunked him once on the river and he was grumpy the whole night and next morning. sometimes I pretend to put bait on and cast an empty hook just so I don't out fish him. And I always cut him the prime hunk-o-bait.

    Just foolin, after his 2nd 25 he felt sorry for me and kept telling me "come on and catch one wilbur" I don't care about size of fish really, numbers of nice ones is better for me. neither happened this time but as a team we did really well.

    I may be off on this but I think one was on gill and one on cut shad. if dip would chime in he could set it straight as my details are foggy.

    The ole empty hook thing huh? I thought I was the only one that did that. I usually feel sorry for Jack & know that hes a little older than I am , so I dont want for him to have to slie down the rock cliff & take a chance on getting hurt, so I sort of "Take One For The Team" & sit back & watch him have all the fun.
