after being up most of the night,i drove over to the brown,and met up with doc at the ramp,for a few hours of cattin, first stop was the bait shop(marina)for some fish food.didn't take long to get more than we needed,so we headed up the lake and anchored up. the fish weren't very aggressive,but cooperative.i think doc has a holding pen out there,cause once things got going,he whooped my butt brand new,LOL. he must have caught close to 20 to my 2 my excuse(other than his holding pen) for the beating i took is that i don't think i had quite as many bites as him.we also,both managed to lose a few. no bigguns today,but doc took "big fish" honors with a 5+ pounder,plus a 4+. the rest were 1-3 pounds.we pulled out about 11:00,and doc insisted on making a quick stop to net some bait for to bring home. he tossed the net and got a nice bunch,but thinking it wouldn't last me a year,he had to make one more toss.now i have eneough for a lifetime,LOL. in that one throw,he filled a 5 gallon bucket almost to the top,and still had that many in the net.should seen him trying to lift them,lol. then came the only real misadventure of the day.while trying to dump them back in the water,half of them ended up on the floor of LYNN's boat what a mess. but not as bad as when the bucket fell off my tailgate in the garage thanks,doc,for a great day on the water,and the extra effort to send me home with some bait.it was a joy fishing with you. ps..............i'll post a couple pics later,if they turned out.
