<P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">Went to Hopedale this past weekend with my dad and <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas:contacts" /><st1:GivenName w:st="on">Drew</st1:GivenName>. Planned on fishing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but Bourbon Street gota hold of meSaturday night and we ended up sleeping in Sunday.<SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 3"><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 4"> <P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">Fishing was actually much tougher than normal for Louisiana. The wind was blowing hard, the tide was low, the water was blown out of the ponds, and the fish had a strange case of lockjaw. Went to the spots where I can normally sight fish them one after another, but even though they were there that wasn?t the case this trip. Ended up having a pretty good trip though catching quite a few fish and some really nice ones.<SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 11"> <P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">Found a new pond that was full of pigs like the two in the picture, so hopefully I can help out someone fishing the IFA next year!<SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 5"> <P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">It would be great to get a group of Pensacola guys together and make a trip over for a friendly tournament. <?xml:namespace prefix = st2 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st2:PersonName w:st="on"><st1:GivenName w:st="on">Charlie</st1:GivenName> <st1:Sn w:st="on">Thomason</st1:Sn></st2:PersonName> has a camp that can accommodate 24, so if you?re interested let me know. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana"><o></o>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">Yeah, those hand grenades are bad news! I normally just throw a spinner bait with a purple and chartreuse soft plastic, but they were picky, so we caught most of them on Gulp! Shrimp and Jerk Shads.

Chris,

Nice fish. Glad ya'll found them. The lack of grass has made seeing fish a little tough. We saw very little clear water early Nov. Still tons of fish. SHB
