Fat Girls luv shiners

Caught a bunch of fat ones last Thurs. Largest was 8-0, also a 7-13, a 6-9, a 6-2 a 5-3 & several 4's. Three of them in one spot. I admit I was cheatin' w/shiners! I had been doing nothing but flippin' (and casting some toads) for the last year but decided to give my back a rest. All but one caught on Stradic 3000 w/10 lb braid. All released healthy, of course.

It was heavenly!...until after sunset when the engine wouldn't start cuz I ran down the batt running the livewell most of the day. My jumper was dead & I tried approx 15 times to pull start it. No luck...Took me 3.5 hrs to pole 2 miles back to the ramp in total darkness. (So much for giving my back a rest, huh?) Clear night, no moon but the star show was Awesome & the USAF launch of new GPS satellite was Spectacular.

All things considered it was well worth it for my best day ever bass fishing.
