WOW great pictures and beautiful fish ! I had to use a google map to see where that is and that is 2,975 miles from me and 54 hours by driving ! Course if i ever went there naturally i'd fly . But the heat here in Texas sure makes me want to go there ! What's the average temp there in the summer and winter ?

The average summer temps are in the 70's.
We do get temps up to the mid to high 80's though. :)

Winter is a whole different story where the average is around -20 to -30.
We get temps all the way down to -70 in the winter.

After being over 100 degrees fishing was tough and I thought about quitting early. I did catch a nice smallie on the rocks so I stuck around a bit, then hooked a big fish that was trying to run out in front of the dam with strong current and high water but I held my ground and luckily had enough line on my spool to play him out and get him to come back to me as I ran the trolling motor. It ended up being a big drum, I should have known. Then a storm neared and the fish started biting so I decided to wait out the storm. I had the camera boxes covered and set up the umbrella and I was nice a cozy taking photos. I put my rain coat top on and figured that would do for a brief storm. Since we have been in a drought for months I didn't expect to get much rain if any. The rain started and the wind picked up and I was just missing some great lightning shots so I was too involved in it all. When the wind picked up I figured I better get a strap for the umbrella to secure it better and just then the wind plucked out the umbrella and it landed a few yards away just floating on top upside down blowing out in front of the dam. Well the umbrella was my plan so I quick pulled up anchor, started up the motor and then the umbrella sank before I could get to it. Just as well, good way to get sucked into that dam. Now I didn't know what to do, it started raining so hard I could only see about 50' in front of me and so I decided to idle my way back. I figured we got 6" of rain because that is what was in my bucket and container. My gps was soaked but that's what got me back because I could see anything. The rain was so loud it was hurting my ears. I had a small path to find in a huge weed bed and it was invisible in the rain but eventually I did find it, and by now it had been an hour of pouring down rain and wind. I had the bilge pump on the whole time but still it was hard to get the boat up on plane once I reached deep enough water in the small channel but I made it back to the ramp. Then I tried to drive the boat on the ramp and the storm was nearing it's end and the wind was blowing from every direction about 60 mph spinning me in circles. I thought it was a tornado and was looking all around for one. Ends up my three cameras and lens all stayed dry, handheld gps was ok, phone ok, wallet wet as I was soaked. I had 6" of water in my rubber boots. The only loss was my umbrella. On the way home I saw 2 bucks along the side of the road an I managed to stop just before one ran across a few feet in front of me. I quick grabbed my camera with the big lens but the deer was too close and couldn't get it all in and I realized I was sitting dead in the road just over a hill so I had to take off quick and the one photo I got was blurry. See the whole set here (minus the deer): http://www.fisheadtack​le.com …%20River_62912/​index.html (external link)

Definitely the way to have a bachelor party. Mine was on Lake Michigan trolling for Salmon.

Here's a few of the better ones from this past week on Cedar and Crab Orchard...The biggest fish have come at night but alas, no camera. The flathead hit a jig and craw...thought I was hooked into a trophy:mad:

One day I was walking on the street and somebody handed me a camera. I looked at them and said, "This is not a Canon, what do I look like? A charity case?" So I took it, and THREW IT ON THE GROUND!
