Anyone fishing this weekend?

So i had to leave an outstanding season of fishing in Ohio to come to sunny southern Arizona for a three week class at Fort Huachuca. I was devistated two weeks before the school date when i learned i was going to have to leave the killer spring bite to go to the DESERT!

Well, i'm ready to eat crow.

I had no idea there was any sort of fishing to be done out here!

I'm in town until the 25th. If anyone is going out before then, i would LOVE to beg a ride.

The caveat to that is that i don't have any gear with me. I will be more than happy to pay for gas and oil, any gear i use/abuse, lunch, and beverages in exchange for some "quality" time on new water and the use of whatever gear you feel comfortable loaning me. I'd be tickled with a barbie pole, a mickey mouse bobber, and a wax worm right about now!

I also tie my own jigs and would love to send some out here so they can be fished "out west" when i get home. I personally own a TR196 Triton and 3/4 ton GMC truck and i fish tournaments at home, so backing the rig in, operating the boat, whatever...i can help. So don't feel like you're dragging out a first timer!

I'm sort of limited on range i can travel...so if anyone would like to fish Parker Canyon or Patagonia, i would LOVE to go.

My cell number is 937-689-5819, and my name is Matt. I don't have my phone on me during duty hours, but if you leave me a VM, i'll call you back the second i get out of class.

Thanks!

They let most of them dry up last summer. I wish you had posted sooner I would have taken you out on the bass boat but as it is I am taking my 76 year old father in-law out on the pontoon so he can do some fishing. He can't get in and out of my bass boat and is not steady on his feet. You are more than welcome to come along if you want. I am going out Sat morning.

all the ponds on post are dry up or never restocked, no budget for the ponds. and all the tree huggers don't want the water to be used up

Silvas, i'd love to go, but i damn sure don't want to horn in on family time. I don't get enough with mine, so i don't want to be "that guy" that takes away from yours!

I know where Jamestown is. Grew in W.C.H. Brother Chris has a video store in Jeffersonville. I've fish around there a lot. Heading back there end of July.
