HELLO EVERYONE ITS BEEN AWHILE BUT I NOW HAVE A REPORT FOR YA FROM YESTURDAY THE 19TH.
YES WE FISHED THAT NASTY RAINY COLD DAY BUT NOT FOR THE SALTWATER FISH BUT THE FIGHTERS OF THE COLD THE BOWFIN.
MY SON WAYNE AND ME ALONG WITH A GOOD FRIEND OF OURS FROM WORK AND HIS SONS WENT FISHING YESTURDAY DESPITE THE RAIN AND COLD,JOE MALIA AND HIS 2 BOYS WERE DEFINETLY UP TO THE TASK AHEAD OF US,THEY WERE THE ONES WHO BUGGED TO GO BUT JOE NEEDED A PROP FOR HIS TROLLING MOTOR AND I WAS TTHE GO TO GUY THERE.
JOE HAD AN OLD MINNKOTA AND I THOUGHT I HAD A PROP LEFT FROM AN OLD ONE I HAD BUT AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT I HAD A PROP BUT NOT FOR A MINNKOTA,
AFTER SOME ADJUSTMENTS ,CUTTING HERE AND MELTING THERE I WAS ABLE TO MAKE THIS PROP WORK :D AND WE WERE OFF TO SEE WHAT THE DAY WOULD HAVE IN STORE FOR US.



WE GET OUT ON THE WATER AND HEAD DOWN STREAM IN SEARCH OF THE RIGHT SPOT TO AMBUSH THESE FINE FIGHTING CRITTERS AND IT DIDNT TAKE LONG BEFORE JOE FOUND THE FIRST TAKER OF THE DAY....





DONT KNOW THE SIZE OF IT SINCE HE DIDNT HAVE A TAPE WITH HIM BUT IT WAS AT LEAST IN THE LOW 20'S
AT THIS POINT THE RAIN STARTED GETTING HEAVIER AND THE FISH SEEMED TO BE GETTING NASTYIER SINCE I HAD AFTER THIS PICTURE LOST 3 RIGHT AT THE BOAT IN THE UPPER 20'S LOW 30 INCH RANGE :(
WAYNE DECIEDED HE WASNT GONNA FOOL AROUND AND STARTED HIS DAY OFF WITH THESE NICE FISH....









JOES OLDEST BOY WASNT GONNA HAVE THE ADULTS CATCHING THE ONLY FISH WHEN HE LANDED THIS SWEET BOWFIN,THE OLDEST BOY IS IN BLUE UP IN THE BACK OF THE BOAT.........



AND THEN ITS WAYNE AGAIN WITH ANOTHER GOOD FIN.........





AS FOR ME I HAD A FEW AND LOST THEM BUT THEN AGAIN IT WASNT ABOUT ME BUT ABOUT THE COMPANY I KEEP,I CAN CATCH FISH WHEN EVER RAIN SLEET SNOW OR SHINE I JUST LOVE TO SEE OTHERS CATCH FISH ;)
IM SITTING BACK WAITING FOR THE DAY I GET MORE MARINES TO FISH WITH AND PUT THEM ON SOME OF THE WONDERS OF QUEENS CREEK MONSTERS.
THIS WAS WAYNES LAST FISH OF THE DAY BEFORE WE HEADED IN TO WARM UP AND DRY OFF.........



IT WAS A GREAT DAY FOR ALL OF US OUT THERE TODAY AND FOR A MAN WITH 2 SONS WITH BIPOLAR THEY DID A GREAT JOB TOUGHING IT OUT AND CATCHING FISH.
THAT IS IT FOR NOW HOPE YA'LL ENJOY I KNOW I DID DESPITE THE COLD AND RAIN......................TIGHT LINES AND SCREAMIN DRAGS TO YA'LL.......MOST OF ALL BE SAFE OUT THERE ;)

Great catch on the bowfins. Really nice pics. Wish I could have joined in. I have not posted in a while due tomy job assignments. I am in far away Illinois and I miss the saltwater. I don'tget a chance towet my line any more like I once did but I hope to return soon to the saltwater and the freshwater. I am new here in the area of Illinois and Indiana but there are some great lakes and rivers here, but ijust have not had a chance to get out there and test the lines yet. Well once again nice catches and pics.Tight lines to all.

:D Hey Tim, no catfish

That sure is some miserable looking weather, the kids will tell that story for a long time how you took them fishing in the rain.

Them are some nice bow's thought:eek:

I saw a few working on the river by me but couldn't get anything to hit, might have been to deep. Was actually looking for cats, wanted some fresh catfish nuggets for supper, but not to happen.

Tight lines <*)))))>{
