A buddy and I took the good ship Clif down to my normal spot at Banner Marsh this afternoon. The wind was blowing right through our jackets and I eventually caught a case of the full body shivers. However, the first fish of 2008 was put in the boat when he caught a 12" crappie on a narrow bodied shallow running crank bait. I ended up with only a couple missed strikes on a white jig and pig.
Also, while loading the boat back into the truck we were attacked by wild animals. It's a story that won't be done justice in type, so if you're curious ask.
