    Default Up the river, down the river.

    On Monday we had the day off for the Juneteenth Holiday. My buddy Christopher and Red Dog accompanied me on a boat trip about 25 miles up river from town.

    The river is very shallow up river from town. Rock ledges crisscross the river bottom in this area.

    This afternoon, my buddy Lonnie and I put in the river just below downtown where the river is still tidal. We were catfishing but not with much luck. 3 small 1.5-2lbs. between us.
    It was warm today about 92F. but there was a pretty good breeze blowing, so not to bad for a summer day in the south.

    Thumbs up Re: Up the river, down the river.

    Great photos Skip.
    Looks much like The Black River here in Lorain.

    Lee,

    There are some biggin's in the river, they just weren't ours for the taking today. There was a big catfish tournament last weekend, they donated the catch to the local food bank.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    There's a certain spirit to it.

    I'm not leaving.

    Great bilge sweetener Skip! Seine some 3" gills. Stomped and hooked behind the gills works for me.
    The stomping is the thing. Massive scent in the stream/river.

    (I bid 3)

    I've never seen that kind of swing-back seat used as anything but second-row in a center console boat, but man that setup makes all the sense in the world!
    What color are their hands now?

    That is a really well set up boat.

    Thank you Sir.

    I am nursing a couple injuries and your pics get me closer to the river than I am allowed to get.

    Tight lines amigo
