Default Wabash river

Well we been hitting the wabash the past few weeks and been putting some nice fish in the ole barrel. today took billy boy for his first trip of the year. we managed to shoot 3 nice all over 10 pound grassies, one 7# common and a 7# buff. Was a slow day really we only stayed 2 hours.

took the wife to Georgetown lake this after noon for a boat ride and catch some sun, managed to wack 4 commons and missed several more. Just starting to wonder just when I'm going to get this shooting fish down.

You just need more practice with that new "hot" bow, it's probably twice as fast as the old and half the weight.

Took Kendall & Christine to the wabash river today. got on the water bout 9:30 stayed till 12:30. Water is as clear as it ever gets, but river is way low, could not get to some places I normally hit. So we ended up shooting the same water a couple times. Christine got a nice 14 poundl and change grassie and two others all over 10#. Us mocho guys let her do all the shooting, Kendall shot one, and I shot 2 nice buffs. I'll tell you one thing that girl can spot fish. I thought Snuffy was good at seeing them, she sure put me to shame. Was a very nice day on the water. now to see if I can post a picture.

Thank God for Kendall and that not everyone has Christine's and your vision or I'm out of business...... but then I would have more time to bowfish so maybe it wouldn't be that bad after all
