The drought has let up some, we've been getting some rain lately, so the lakes and rivers are doing better than they were.

Spring is looking good so grab that long rod and get on 'em.
You can always PM me for location advise.

No, I don't have a kayak and not sure that's for me. For one, I can't stand to fish sitting down. I'm a bit of a tackle junkie and let myself get fat in the freezing winters up north. I'm about 6' 230lbs, and seems to me, that doesn't leave a whole lot of room for gear in your average kayak.

I've been looking for a 14'-16' aluminum boat with a 25hp tiller since I got here, but seems Texans are awfully proud of their aluminum boats.

I apologize for not responding sooner. I appreciate the welcome. I guess I now know I need to adjust my email settings here. Didn't realize anyone had replied.

As for football, I'm almost embarrassed to admit I'm an Ohio State fan. Not because of the team, but I don't know that there's a larger group of idiots that call themselves fans than OSU fans. I grew up in Atlanta though, and a pretty big GT fan as well, if that helps me win back any respect...
