:::mine was juno road, June 1987 (dark blairs male) . . . actually, my brother picked it up off the pavement . . . the first one i actually picked up was a gravid female (dark blairs) the next night on Pandale dirt
:::my wife's first one was a light alterna male at Loma Alta, July 1991
::First alterna was on River Road (mud flats) May 19th 1988, between 2 and 2:30 AM. Adult female w/ 18 nice orange bands and alternates. DB
: Don't want to call it a screamer but it was definitely an 8.0 or 8.5. Is it still alive? I still have the celanops from the guard rail area I caught that same weekend. Looks like the ex redskin qb is going to lead the Bucs to the Super Bowl! How about taking Spurrier with em!
She died a couple of years ago. She remains framed on my wall as I had Marty Capron do a rendition. He got every marking and coloration correct from photos I sent for him to work with. He does great work. It may not have made you scream but it worked for me. Hope to catch another there someday. I am over 80 nights on that road since doubling in 94. Such is hunting in the Bend.
I think the super bowl talk is a bit premature. Let's see what happens in Nawlins this week and w/ Atlanta next b4 we do too much super bowl boasting. B.Johnson is doing a great job to this point. Until we develop some sort of running game I will remain a sceptic when it comes to the TB offense.
I still am confident that Spurrier will succeed in Washington w/ the Gatorskins. Anyone, other than Coach K., who can when a conference title at Duke should probably do ok at the next level. It seems to me most of the talent is on defense which hasn't exactly been stellar under Lewis, the highest paid d-coordinator. I think you will see mostly offense drafted and some offensive free agency next year. DB
