I was out by Dodge today with my oldest son. We were up at the garbage hole from three to five thirty. The place was like a ghost town, not complaining nice to have the place to yourself. The river was up nice and had good color. Good luck tomorrow.

Andy, soon enough you will be going out, and expecting to catch fish... Not the other way around. It is always nice to just be out, but it looks like you are building the basis to catch lots of fish... Confidence. Good luck man.

Hey guys just wanted to say super cool day on the river! I have to say it is better to have hooked up and lost than not hooked up at all. Kush and I both hooked up and lost them. Got mine on like the first 5 casts and kush hooked up right aftera huge downpore of rain. Both cromers and super hot fish. Hope to see you all on the river again soon!

So what time did you guys leave. I got there just before four just as some folks were leaving. Stuck around through some rain squalls and even fished under the bridge during one heave down pour.

I was there until 3:30...SO in case you missed it. After a huge downpour and some bongloads in my car...I decided to get back out there with NINJA...SO on my first cast using just a corkie and a little rubber salmon egg Within 10 seconds OF MY Cast AND 1 TIME FEELING THE BOTTOM I felt the bite. I set the hook and it was on. Fought for a good 10 seconds then my line got snagged under a rock...After getting it dislodged (about 20 seconds later) I felt her tugging again and as I lifted my rod this beautiful Chromer came jumping out of the water about 10 feet from the bank I could clearly see my pink bait on her lip . At that exact moment I heard a crack and the line go dead. As I looked down on my 20 dollar Wal MArt Shakespeare 6 foot pole the top 4 inches had been cracked right off !!!! WAWAWEEEWAA !!! I ALSO HAD ANOTHER 20 DOLLAR REEL CRACK ON ME AND LOST ABOUT 30 DOLLARS WORTH OF TACKLE during the day BUT IT WAS well WORTH IT.

I WILL BE OUT ON THE CLACK TOMORROW MOST LIKELY RIVERSIDE PARK WITH NINJA AND YOUNG BUCK. lOVE TO SEE YOU ALL OUT THERE. PEACE

BTW....Bought myself a beautiful Berkely Buzz Ramsey AIR M7 ROD so I will be ready to go tomorrow. Also picked up some Waders !!! I can't wait !



ALSO...THANKS FOR THE KIND WORDS IAN !!! I LOVE DRIFT FISHING BYE THE WAY...SO MANY VARIABLES.

ha! it was indeed a great day out. last time i was at dodge was over a year ago... and this time there were 3 peeps from OFF to fish with. how cool is that?

anyhow, skunkage for me (as usual) but it was a good day.

irish... i was the one driving the van as you pulled up with your flu rod. woulda said "hi" if i had known.

anyway, i'll be at riverside around 9ish... maybe start of at the rocks, and then hike over to the bend. i'll have two poles and a hat and a belt bag thingy...

see ya'll tomorrow.
