I am chompin at the bit here to get out. My boat is madder than hell at me for leavin her in the vacant hog barn all winter, I can just tell. As soon as I can convince two partners to split the gas and get a semi warm night out....I am headin to KY Lake ASAP. Anyone got any plans for this year? IL Flying Silvers with Chris Brackett in July. KY Lake Grassies and Bigheads all summer. Possibly another trip to the gulf for flounder and rays. Might enter a few tournaments this year just to test the waters and see how we could do competitively, but only for fun. I mentioned a while back, showing some pics of my bow renovation...well I finally got around to it. I painted it myself, and clear coated over it...all krylon paint, pretty durable and when it finally rubs off I can just sand it and repaint. Replaced every single bolt in the bow with a stainless steel counterpart...no more rust, even on accessories. Hooked up the retrievers with a dovetail mounting system to make taking them off a sinch....I can now switch from retriever to spinnin reel in seconds. I like the reel for fast paced gar action, but the retriever is nearly essential on the bigheads. This bow is the PERFECT bowfishin bow...and if I ever come across a blown up Cuda, I may swap cams for some cuda cams and have the ultimate bowfishin rig. 55# limbs. Anyway, here goes.... Who else is anxious to hit the water?
