    I was able to get out on the Mississippi downtown yesterday with Golfnut and new member Dingo_thebabyeater, which a handful of you know as Dane, who participated in a couple MDS events. I also was able to help Dane kill his first two deer last year, so we are on a roll!
    Anyways as soon as we got to our spot, we got slammed with the heaviest wind and rain I've ever been a part of for about 5 minutes. It was insane to say the least, but we won't focus on that part..
    Within the first 40 yards of the first drift, Dane caught his first blue cat, which he's been trying for for a long time. Golfnut also caught his first several blue cats. We caught fish very consistantly, and ended up with 14 in a little under 3 hours of fishing. Biggest was 18lbs.
    Good times!!

    Awesome stuff! I bet Dane was glad you got him out. He is ate up with fishing, hunting and outdoors in general, and obviously doesn't let a few obstacles keep him from doing what he loves.

    Not gunna lie, it's a bit nerve racking having a wheelchair in an aluminum jet boat on the Mississippi River!
    Those boys are going to be eating fish for quite awhile..
