Got a great gift today - my beautiful wife offered to go fishing - didn't take any convincing. Left the house at 3:00am, so we could launch by 6:30. Hit the river hard from 6:30 until 3:00. Got a nice 37" fish next to bouy #9 at 10:45 -and managed 3 dinks (22-25") during the next 3 hours. The action wasn't fast and furious, but it was definitely worth going for that 37" fish!
