Featured Story: Fishing in the rain
By: Michael

It was a Wednesday, I am at work with a storm moving in and the boss tells us to pack it up for the day ( it\'s 10 am). I have got a itch telling me the bass are on the move, so I ask all my fellow coworkers to join with no takers, some even said I was crazy. I run to the bait shop then home, load the canoe grab 2 rods and the rain starts to fall, I look up and say it\'s only rain. I am out on the pond rain is steady but so are the bass, I caught 33 largemouth bass in a 3 hour time period on a average of 2.5 pounds. Now I ask you CRAZY I think not just the ones who did\'nt want to join becuse some rain. P.S. So the next time it looks like a storm is on the move call Bait-N-Wait for all your fishing needs and you may have the day of your life like I did.........
