    Bryan and I had a great time in Ft. Worth this past weekend. Jeff Foxworthy missed some great material for his shows. :bangin: We fished ponds or tanks as Texans call them. They were hitting everything we threw at them. Spinners worked but plastics by far and top water in the late evening and early mornings was the ticket.

    It was hot though. over 95 all weekend and Saturday the wind was getting with it. Now for those who have not met me I am 6'1 and close too 300 pounds. Way to short for my weight :hysterical: My brother who is not a small guy either myself and Bryan were in a 10ft jon boat plus trolling motor and battery. It got exciting setting hooks and fight 30 plus winds.

    Worst thing is that I took three pictures right away and my camera just died. :mad: We did not even try to count what we caught but this ol' fat boy was tuckered out.

    Sorry and angry about my camera or I would have lots of pics. All the bass were released. None were under 2 lbs and some were over four.

    BTW, gas was as high 2.95 :eek:

    Sorry bout the hand in the shots. I was trying to block some sun to see the view finder.

    1FastCam, wished I would of new that. I would of let you buy me a cold one :D When I got back home gas had gone up 12 cents over the weekend.

    Oklahoma was sure dry. Saw several empty ponds and I could hardly believe my eyes when we crossed the Red River. There was very little mud red water.

    Yeah Keith, there aint much water down here right now. I'd hate to think of what it would be like if we didnt get that 11 inches of rain (in 24 hours) last month. Last time I was at the lake it was still about 6 feet low. We need some rain bad!

    But heck if ya ever make it back down this way gimme a holler!
