Was out fishing close to home last night and had some great action out by the dam.Was out on pool 5 below the dam got some nice fish nothing big but some nice eaters from 14-19 in. eye's & saug's.Was fishing in water from 12ft-20ft rattle jigs in the firetiger,gold and silver caught most of the fish with jiging rap's in the same colors worked also.The rap's and rattles all where in the 1/4 ounce model fished anywhere from 2-6ft off the bottom seemed the fish wanted it this way.Anyways great evening to get out very nice weather.Here are some pictures hope you enjoy them and get out fishing there are plenty to be caught right now and dont be affaid to move. cool.gif Here is a nice 18 eyeDSC00529.jpgMy buddy with a 23 eyeDSC00531.jpg And to finish it off here is a couple shots of the riverDSC00516.jpgDSC00516.jpg Yes guy's and gal's that is open water you see behind us happy fishing till next time.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.
