As of this afternoon (8-29-11) the creek the turney is out of is 5-8 foot above normal and looks like coffee, it is usally so clear you can see down 5-8 foot, it should clear up by the weekend.

But it will open up a whole new can of worms with alot of water means the fish will be farther up on the grass matts. It's going to be really hard to not shot all the carp that will be up on that grass mat also.

Home field advantage i guess Marc. This thing could go anyones way....the water levels should even the playing fields.
