Hey fellow fish i thought i would tell ya about the forest fire . the past 2 nights ive gone out side and can see the glow from it here in king.the fire is about 8 miles from me by the way the crow flies.And if any of you were on Belews lake today you probally seen the plane and helacopters scooping water from the lake .they were comming to the lake about every 20 minutes or so.if any of you are traveling north on hwy 52 just before the westinghouse exit you can get a good glance at the fire.its not a fishing report but thought everyone would like to read about .i fished with one of my friends on his boat today and it was slow.we had to do everything his way and it didnt pay off for us.i like the guy but we are to differnt in ower fishing styles. fish were hitting cb really good but couldnt my buddy to peralle the banks.the fish were holding close to big lay downs. TIGHT LINES:eek:.

Thanks for the fire update

Everybody doesn't make a good fishing partner, no matter how well you like them. To many different techniques and not everyone uses all of them.

My best partner was my cousin, he is left handed and me right handed, man it made it great on the front casting deck with both of us hammering at the same time and never in each others way.

When one man hit a fish the other kept the trolling motor going or grabbed the net.

tight lines <*)))))>{

Thanks for the report. I've been to Mountain Top Youth Camp up there dozens of times and I've always heard it referenced as being on Sauratown. Have to check in with those folks to see if its the same hill and if the camp is all right.
Update: The camp IS on Sauratown Mountain and their mountain was on fire. It was ugly the first couple days as the fire was very difficult for the fire crews to access, but they did get a good fire break dug and improved access while they got some help from above with helicopters, and then even higher above with rains over the weekend and on Monday. Last night's report was that the fire crews are still working on hotspots, starting at the camp's cliffs and working their way down. They expect to be there 2 more days. No damage of camp buildings, much praise and thanks to the Lord for that.
