Been super busy the last year, too many irons in the fire, fishing a little, found a population of wall hangers in a lake thats not supposed to have Striper in it in Arkansas, have witnessed three 50+ come from it this last year -- its a hero or zero bite, but if you DO get a bite the fish are all over 40#.

Finished up a weekend getaway on the Ouachita river above Lake Ouachita, Arkansas (lots of smallies , but river too warm for Stripes, lake has plenty though) still stuck in Okie land , but looking for more land in Columbia SC area or Celina TN area to build on and retire in 12 years.

Just about done with guiding - economy has sucked the life outta it -- no worries there , havin fun fishin for myself

Went on our annual Salty trip -- still have Red Snapper we haven't eaten yet.

Repairing reels, for now still employed, at Creative Labs, fishin when I can

IF I can get away I hope to provide a big striper for ya to shoot at

You're time is coming Tony, for what it's worth, I just got the title "schleprock" on the Smack forum, and Chef thinks you can help me with my "ancient" abu. jeez. Smile
Welcome back and thanks for the feedback.
LMJ

BTW, Shawn, how can I change the "soup guru" under my tag? I might be a little verbose, but a LONG way from being any kind of guru around here. Rolling Eyes
