Well fellas, It's memorial day weekend, so who's planning on hittin' the river? Mine's grinning greased and gassed, looking at Monday if the rain lets up and the river looks good.

I'll see ya when summer decides to show up...

Not really looking to go freeze my a** off. I went out last Sunday in the rain and probably had more fun!

Monday does look like the best day though.

Have fun and be safe!

I got side tracked on another project, but i did take the stream off the jacks. I heared they found a body last weekend at Gildersleeve island.

Heard the river is way up

I am sure it is! It was raining buckets yesterday.

Monday may be salvagable...we will see.

Happy Memorial Day guys. Looking forward to seeing you this year! I rarely take the Checkmate out, so I will try and send you a picture of my deck boat.

The River is way up and The forecast is calling for another 1-3 inches of rain. Looks like it's gonna be another short season.

I ran the last few weekends. Water is high and turbid with lots of floating debris in the water!

Gonna be a short rainy season if this keeps up.

HD, You didn't take the Checkmate out in that debris...? I'm thinking of sticking mine in a lake Sunday, just to get it wet.
