    Default 2019 in Pictures

    The year started out with a bang as two new trolling batteries exploded in my console. Heard the boom and thought it was limb falling on my awning. What a mess to clean up.

    My grandson was born shortly after that and he is a keeper for sure.

    Catfish season was tough with wind and cold snaps making fishing hard but filled a few coolers. A transducer ripped from my boat by a log.
    Just could not get a break in March

    But come the end of March things got better.





    My granddaughter was born, she is sweet and I will keep her to.

    Now we head into snakehead season and it was a pretty good season with more caught than last year.









    So this brings us in September and location X fishing.





    In October we did a bunch of catfish trips



    Looking back we had many great trips and tons of laughter.

    So long 2019


    Next year I plan to do a full week of shad fishing followed by a good meal for Captain and crew... The weekdays of April 20th thru 23rd are still open. 24th is booked now.

    Capt Mike : On May 5th I will retire from my job and open up three more days/evenings of fishing . Monday and Tuesday are no fishing.
    That's right right folks full time guiding after 28 years of weekends only.

    Right now crappie is almost booked up. We have about 4 dates opens between me and Capt Dave.

    Main river bass fishing or as like to call it "Bubba" trips will open this year in May weekdays only. I have always wanted to be able to do those trips again. Missed the run and gun trips on the main river..
    June thru August will be evening trips for snakehead and bass.

    Monster catfish in the early spring and fall.


    Thanks
    Capt Mike
    Capt Dave

    Nice pictorial. I'm going to talk to my wife about booking a snakehead trip next summer, but I think that we'd better act soon...

    Mike - Thanks for sharing all the photos. You had a successful year and made many clients happy. Congratulations on your upcoming retirement. I am approaching my 9th anniversary of retirement and have not regretted it a single day.

    Congratulations on your new grand babies and upcoming retirement. I have thoroughly enjoyed fishing with you every Spring for over 10 years. Full coolers and belly laughs on every trip. See you in the Spring......... Gary

    Great season pictures. What kind of fish is 4th from the bottom? Is that a female snakehead?

    Neither have I. What’s the difference between a bowfin and a snakehead? Do they both have aggressive teeth and appetite? Are they the snake heads North America cousin?
