    Last night the conditions weren't all that great but we got 22 and managed to break 200 for the boat total at 203 for this year. Once the water clears up it should get really good the carp are starting to move in a little shallower and you can see mud clouds everywhere as your going along you just can't see the fish.

    I thought I'd post an update since I have been really busy with my lawn care business lately we got out last Saturday night and got a nice barrel of 25 fish even though the conditions weren't the greatest, then Sunday night I got out with THS Sporting Center to fill a barrel I took a camera along and have some editing to do I don't know if we'll get out this weekend with the rain coming but it's definitely starting to get pretty good on the bay.

    It looks like the Chipmunk will be at the BAM shoot in Standish next weekend. I can't believe it snuck up on so fast found it was next weekend today I don't even know who's shooting it with me yet something will work out so come over and see us if you're there.

    Well you win some you loose some last night was officially my worst night ever for finding fish at the Standish BAM shoot we ended up with 7 fish total that brought us up to a whopping 78 lbs we quit at 3 am we went out of a launch on a river and fished in the river until the wind died down then we tried the bay. A friend of mine that we fished right by played his cards right after talking to him the best I can figure he found a few holes of fish and he backed off them when anyone got close to him and ended up with 113 and got 2nd in our class it was just his turn we were fishing right with airboats that weren't doing much better than us. Jake an I still had a good time it was his first tournament so he enjoyed seeing how it all works everything went great we had little wind and clear water just no fish.

    Each time on the water you learn something, I bet you'll do better next time.

    That's very true. Can I get a participation trophy? I mean this in the best way possible but I'd rather not be called a winner for that one but I see where you're going

    Now that I have time after being busy all weekend Friday night my Blonde haired friend came up to shoot some fish and we hit it perfect we ended up with 65 it was just plain awesome we were done at 1:30 the Chipmunk handled it just fine but that's about all the weight I'm going to try with it if I wasn't headed to cedar point for a band trip Saturday morning we could of easily got over 100 with an offload by the time we dumped fish and got home I got a shower and half hour nap before I had to go to the school to leave cedar point was fun but I'd of rather shot fish until daylight lol then after cedar point I got home at 1 am on Sunday then woke up in the morning to cut lawns it was a pretty crazy weekend

    After Friday night I'm sure hoping it rains tonight the boat smells terrible lol

    If I were you, I'd start taking the blonde more often. (Sorry Jake.) Although I believe in following through with your commitments, I think it would have been acceptable to call in sick to the band to hang out on a boat all night with a real live girl while hammering the fish.

    Since I may or may not be fishing in the 2nd largest tournament in the country this weekend the GLBC I haven't posted anything about it yet but we're the first in line to get a spot since there's always no shows the day of we'll probably get a spot but I've got a kid with a truck that's a decent shot shooting it with me I'm going out Thursday night and Taking Friday off to scout as long as there's not to much wind I've got over 10 miles of shoreline picked out not counting the infinite twist, turns, and holes in the marsh to try to cover I'm hoping to put the effort in this year to try to place and make it in the top 20 this year we'll for sure be using all the daylight we can get I know a good chunk of that marsh pretty well so we'll see how it goes

    Sorry Chance, I was off the grid after my post Friday. I would have called Colleen for you if I had seen your post.

    So what? Let's say it costs $75 to go to Cedar Point with the band. It also costs $75 to hang out with the pretty girl on the boat for another 4 hours. Which one you gonna pick? There will be opportunities beating on your door your whole life. Sometimes, plans will need to change to take advantage of those opportunities. I'll turn this into a spreadsheet, if it'll help, but we are gonna need to see a picture of the girl from the Cedar Point trip.

    No problem #13 wasn't up for grabs anyway we got the only no show spot, but Friday we found quite a few fish in a few different spots and one that had the fish boiling pretty good. We thought we had a good chance of being competitive Saturday we got out of the cut and raced over to find not one fish loaded up the boat to try a couple more and only managed to get 2 goldfish and a nice dogfish that was in the running for the biggest for a while. Then Sunday we got out of the quarry and to the launch with a bunch of boats that were still loading up their stuff so we went to put the boat in around them and everything was good I hoped out to put the plug in the boat quick since the drain hole got plugged the night before with scales and I was letting it drain going down the road went to hop back in the truck and a guy with about a 14x7 airboat pulled up trying big and bad barely squeezed by us and had to back down the ramp at an angle since it's a tiny ramp we got the boat in the water and went to take off and that airboat was trying to go at the same time but needed a good shove off the back so we passed him right up and he had to follow us out the cut since it's a little narrow he couldn't pass us he wasn't to happy it was one of the better parts of the weekend lol but the we didn't shoot a fish Sunday and ended with a whopping 12 pounds I guess it was one of the worst weekends they've ever had the average was only 43 lbs
