    ps all fish'es were released 2 fight a nother day
  2. I'm thinking of heading down there (tappan) today, either there or somewhere on the Tusc. I've never fished either area, so it should be interesting. Hope theirs restrooms nearby, my gf and my buddie's wife will be with us. I hate stopping fishing to take someone on a bathroom trip lol. I'll have to check the maps and look for an overpass to fish, hopefully i can do as good as you did.

    Hey there Jimbo, glad to see you got your jig back in the water. :) Good job on the fishes. I guess they don't care how high the water is. Haven't been out in 2 months. Wife has had me remodeling. Gettin close to being done so maybe you and I can hit em here in a couple of weeks. I still haven't caught a smallie at Tappan. :(

    Hey Jimbo how's it going? I've been dying to get back down there since we fished together. I doubt it will happen though. I have a tourny on Erie in Oct. so I need to spend my time up there. Good job on the fish.
