There I was freezing my ass off at the Yellow Cliffs boat ramp at about 4:30 pm talking to a fisherman about dropshotting, he thought 20# braid and 2/0 hook should have done the trick. When all of a sudden I hear this god awfull screaming and cussing. It sounded like someone was trying to kill a guy. It sounded like it was coming from Alder creek area so I jump into my trusty county POS and drive up to a high vantage point. As I scanned the lake with my handy 16 x 80 binos,( you would be amazed at what I can see with them and the detail!) I see a ski boat with some fool flailing around in the water behind it. The idiot is wearing, Yes swim trunks with flames on them and a PFD, THATS IT. Folks the water is a tad bit nippy now, it causes major shrinkage to the point you would need a comealong and a crowbar to get the parts back out to see sunlight. Now there are 4 people on this boat so shorty gets back on the boat and the next idiot jumps in the water and does the same thing. He instantly jumps back into the boat and a third guy jumps in. when he jumped in he was telling the other guys something about how they reminded him of his cat and how he thought they had to squat to pee. As he hit the water he made a deep gutteral moan and commanded the boat to go. He made it about 300 yards before the wind chill stopped him and he got into the boat. This ended their day on the water.

If it is wet and it aint warm DONT GET IN

Speaking about using braided line while dropshotting, there was a speaker at the AZ Game & Fish open forum meeting (July, August, or September) talking about fishing Pleasant. He used braided line and then a fluorocarbon leader while dropshotting on Pleasant. Delw, d a, Ken, Bayou, Rippinlips, Nightcrawler, Rob, Greg, Samario, Ned02, and other posters were there. The speaker liked the braided line as he could better feel the soft bites while dropshotting. The fluorocarbon leader was invisible to the fish he said. Anyway, to each his own. 8)
Del, that's who it was ..... Paul Hodges and he gave a great presentation about Pleasant. I thought he had a great picture library of the high and dry lake bottom with associated GPS coordinates. He's done his homework. 8)
