Got up at 4 A.M. and got out on the road early....

Image

packed up the boat in the back of the truck....

Image

and caught the sunrise on the way to meet Rueben...

Image

Met up with him, Big Ed and Johnny Butler....

Image

Crossed the damn and picked up Don Harder and lost Johnny ( got sick and headed back home :( ) got to the put in around 7ish and the rest of them left me watch the floatilla while they took the trucks to the take out....

Image

I began looking around at the sights....

Image

Image

and began thinking of Deliverence when I saw this....

Image

after having seen this in the parking lot at the gas station while picking up a last few necessities :o ....

Image

finally got on the water which was up and dingy.....only caught one of these.....

Image

notice the jurassic eyes....I guess you're right Supa....the narrow end does go in the front?? :?

Image

and a few of these.....

Image

it was a long hot day on the water......

Image

and towards the end a few of us pretty much gave up and sought shelter in the shade.....

Image

took out around dinner time and called it a day.....during the shuttle taking out ....Reuben got pissed about not catching any fish and took Bambie out on the way back to get the boats......You're a cold hearted SOB Reuben!! :twisted: :lol: :lol:

Few fish....but always fun when you have good company! :D

Darrell Dotson and I floated the Broad behind the Biltmore and also had an uneventful day - we got up early (4 for me) but not on the water til noon and lots of traffic from the AOC couldn't have helped - water was dingy and I had one smallie hook up / long distance release, and 1 bream - Darrell - about 6 small smallies.... fished hard for the 7 miles - 7 hours... started with high hopes and left frustrated and tired....

sounds about like our day...but with thunderstorms having rolled thru Fri. night....I never even had my hopes up. Still just nice to get out on the water though.

Nice report. Holler when you want to try the Catawba. http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/catawb ... il-map.asp Wading is also an option.

Just to be clear, I will not rely on you as a source for latex scuds.

Just a heads up I think that OMD and I are going to do an exploratory float there on Monday morning. Not sure what you have going for the 4th but you are welcome to join us.
