Well I missed the yellow ones again this year. I went to the Tuckahoe River and this guy I met there said they had caught them all in early March for 2 days then that was it. I asked him what he was doing there and he was looking for the White perch run...DOH!!! a dollar short and a day late I think I am........ So we unloaded the yaks and paddled up river looking for something but no bites at all :-( gonna try Kent Narrows tonight and hope my luck will change:fish:

I have been having problems with my Emergency Brake so I have been keeping the truck in gear as well as using the break. Well I guess they both failed cause the truck was in the water. I was in the boat running it up the trailer when I saw it going. Jumped out into the water and thank goodness I got the door open and in the truck before the water got up past the seats. Talk about a big ol DOH!!

Ya know the Camera was the one that really hurt Wish I had it cause he had that rocky rite along the boat 3 times before it spit the hook. That dang Net is huge and gets in the way but I guess it would have come in handy last nite. Gonna remmber the camera tonite:blob1:

OMG went out tonite with the camera and the net and all my buddies left me cause they said there was gonna be some wind....phoooie on them. Got out in the narrows at 9 and a beautiful nite.......then the wind picked up and then it picked up some more by 10:30 it was blowing white caps in the narrows. Then my anchor line gave way heading for the bridge at an incredible rate ...got the engine going pulled in the useless anchor and headed in. had to gun the little Waler almost full throttle just to make headway in the wind and the current....Maybe my buddies were rite after all .......0 fishies:angry7:
