Bummer Geoff, maybe I can make it out your way sometime soon, I hear there's some close-by trout streams in your area!

thats to bad, will have to get together some time, AJ I was talking with Geoff about going out his way to fish, maybe once things warn up and go for smallies. AJ so are still meeting up this run, what was the date we decided? I should have my order in for 2 spools of 320 ft lines for the cable cam, tons of set up time for this shot,, I hope I can get a helper for this. weather doesnt look too promising for wednesday but ill try to test things.. I have an idea for these 300+ lines, I need to make a winder for them so I can retreave the lines easier, I have a cool spot I want to try a really high line to low near one of those cliffs. hmm. geez Im gonna be hualing my hiking pack hahah.

Yes it is a bummer, I was really looking forward to it, I need to get away something fierce. There are some so-so trout streams within about an hour and a half of me, but dont expect anything over 10". Now if you want some sweet smallie action and warmwater fishing thats excellent, i have you covered plenty for that. Within an hour from my house we can be in some water with 18-22 inch smallies thats wadeable. Good trout water is closer to 3 hours away from me unfortunitly. I still want to try out Otter, just this time is not going to work for me. AJ - please dont tell me about how close or easy access you have to fishing mangroves or flats for snook, redfish, ladyfish and speckled trout at home because I have a REALLY hard time staying out of FL, especially since were moving there in a few years.

I have also decided from another thread im going to work on a movie this summer, maybe 10 minutes if I remember to film, Im going to make a small documentry on my local water, its 3 minutes from my house. if it turns out it should be fun.

That storm came thru my area about 3 am and it was short and fast ( thats what she said ). It was over within 15-20 minuts of it showing up. Lots of rain, maybe some hail, i couldnt tell and a little lightning.

yeah all is well here. we had a big tornado go thru a pretty populated area down south where my wifes aunt and uncle live, we think they are ok, they are off the pah but still need to check in with them. then two places that have trout parks got hit. all i have heard about the one is a gas station has been removed from exisitance and nothing about the other.

I seen a bunch on the news, heck elizabethtown near me was in the news also. this time of year gets goofy when it comes to creek fishing.. usually as soon as the water drops another storm hits and floods it again.. might have to hit the pond hahah.. I did get a chance to test the camera trolley in the house today, I need to work on a few things. It wont be hollywood quality but if it allows me to get the camera into a neat spot it should be cool.
