Don't mean to hound you but if you can post that Kish date as soon as possible I would appreciate it.

Being short handed at work, I need to put in for a vacation day at least 48 hours ahead of time.


Again, I don't mean to hound you.

Here's the schedule for next week's ahocking. This is the whole thing, but if I remember correctly, they do not want volunteers for the boat sampling. I just thought I'd leave those in in case someone just wanted to watch. If you'd like to help out on the electric seining, please send a P.M. to Rich so he can coordinate with the DNR. Waders are a must, neoprene is preferable.

Okay, help me out I'm stupid.

Let's say that I go to Kilbuck Bluffs on the 15th @ 9am to watch this boat sampling. Are they going to stay in one place and take samples,

or am I going to be running along the edge of the bank trying to watch this as they float down stream?

Just trying to figure out if I need a coffee cup with a top or can I go topless?

Help a brother out.

Welcome back Jude.


rich - Nice dog.
