We got some small channels out of the gate. Then had one of the closest lightning strikes in my life go off next too us. Then we were trapped in the pouring rain for two hours. Tough night when the fishing shut down after that.

Thanks to all that stayed out last night in the rain. It was a tough bite once again, but some people were able to put fish in the boat. A special thanks to my boat partners last night Karl & Brandy for sticking it out against horrific odds.

from what has been submitted, we are in a position to announce the winners and they are:

Flatheads:

1st place goes to Ryan with one at 36.5 X 22

2nd place goes to Joe with one at 31 X 17

Channel cats:

1st place goes to Jake with a nice 33 X17

2nd place goes to Joe with a 26.5 X 13.5

Thanks once again to all that took part, and hope your drying out nicley.

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
    • Beautiful pics as always Jim.
