Keith, your not dead. Hope you live a looooooooooooooooooong time to enjoy it down there. Wish I could get down to visit but wife needs me here and she won't go with me.

If there are fish to catch. I'll be there to my end.

Cant wait to make it down to the ohio river next march for some wiper action. skip jacks are all they use. after hitting the ohio river dams I'm heading down to pensacola fl. Were having a really late indian summer. Havent even had a frost yet!!! Boats still in the water!!! Just installed a 400watt engine heater as well.

I have a few channel cats in my pond. They mostly feed on the alewife herring in there and at night they cruise the shoreline inhaling the small bluegills that are sleeping. Channels are a very aggressive species.
