Adrian, why wait to be invited? If only it were this easy to break free from my fatherly duties.....

Hindsight being what it is...I figure for me to be able to get Fred and his yak up on plane I'd have to be doin' 17 mph...and since my legs redline at 8 mph, we were doomed for failure from the getgo...
Thanks for posting those pics...great day on the water...and more on the way!

Just to set the record straight those pics were taken in the good old days back on the first of July. Sun was kinda high in "the beginning" because we lingered at my house per chance Striblu might show up and we were targeting the early afternoon flood anyhow. I had fun with schoolies on the outgoing while Pete flailed for several hours with one dink to show for his efforts. We setup at the mouth of a trough for the flood and weren't disappointed, though it was tough to break the ice. Pete found the sweet spot and hit the keeper tri-fecta in a 15 minute window. After the third he had me move into his slot and I hooked up on the first cast that broke me off after a hard fought battle. Had to be my biggest to date. Dejected and feeling sorry for myself for losing that fish, when we hit skinny water on the paddle in Pete says "stay right there" and started dragging me to deeper water.

It was, a very nice day. Had a few of them like that in June and early July out there.
