Funny you ask, I had 2 run by me the other day while walking the dog. All seriousness aside, they are starting to show up in some small streams and ditch's in my neck of the woods.

nice mess of eats there! for man though not catfish.  to each his own.  i have buddy that uses trout chunks for catfishing.  ;D

dr. speckler i got a funny you'll enjoy.  i went to tape out a 2 car and 3 car garage.  the homeowner told me he was putting in expansion joints.  i said ok no big deal.  when i got there the other day he had them in. he also put a huge coat over them.  key word being over.  he coated over the tear offs instead of beside them. lol  i told him what he did wrong but he was for sure he was rite.  i had him watch a trim-text vid on installation and he then believed me.  i made him grind them down with a sander and went back the next day.  for some reason he didnt enjoy all that grinding over head. lmao
