Nice offer!

If the boat is the same one in your avatar, it may be a tight fit.

Hows the fishing out there now? We used to tear up the catfish and do pretty good on the reds. That was about 7yrs ago though.

I would love to do that, but a little too far. Had to look the lake up. They had reds in Tradinghouse lake close to Waco that I fished for them 100 years ago.

Spots been filled. I normally end up looking for someone last minute to go due to people canceling on me. So may be looking for some new fishing buddy's soon.

There are two plants there (actually more than that I believe) , each with multiple units. One is running, one is not running any longer.

Make sure you post up what y'all catch. Leaving for Colorado Tuesday. When I get back I might hit you up for pointers. All the lakes around here are flooded out. Need to get the boat out somewhere.

Let me know when you make some of these trips. I'm local (10 min from the gate) and willing to pitch in for bait, gas, and drinks. My yak is older and doesn't do well out there so if you got seats on a full size boat, i'm in!

Ended up with about 17 reds between two people lost a lot of fish. One being probably the biggest fish I have ever hooked broke 25lb big game mono like it was nothing reminded me of how kings hit off shore.
