Took the daughter's boyfriend out fishing to get to know him a bit. He caught an 18 inch Bass so I said I would catch 2 Bass. This is the pic of the bigger of the two. I showed him I do what I say I will.

Took two of the grandsons on a 4 day camping trip to Geneva State Park. On the third day I took them on their first Erie trip. The one apparently hadn't slept well the night before. He caught a perch and said "Now I am not skunked so I am going to sleep" and laid down on the bench and fell asleep. Here he is with his perch. That is his cousin beside him.

Ok Ryan I've got an entry for you... This picture was taken 100+ miles out in the Gulf of Mexico from Tampa. The fish in the picture is known as a porgy. It weighed in at around 18 lbs. Very large for the species. Caught on a 9 Oz spro hair jig tipped with a big piece of squid in about 700 ft of water on the bottom. Was one of dozens of great catches made by the 20 or so guys on the 63 hour trip, including several grouper over 30 lbs. Was the most amazing fishing trip I've ever been on. Oh, and did I mention that this 2 1/2 day trip was taken during my honeymoon? I love my wife so much....Lol

I caught this 17" smallmouth on a small jigging spoon tipped with a minnow during the doctor tournament on the 18th. It was a real thrill catching a fish like it on a icerod with a inline reel. It even made a small leap out of the water. After pictures it was released to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy catching it.

 I'm sure by now we have all lost someone special. When it comes down to only pictures remaining I'm glad I have some good ones. Tom was a good friend friend who loved IFO and fishing in general! I have endless stories to tell of times spent on the water. Rest in piece my friend,  you are not forgotten!

You mean pictures before things went south, Carl? Oh the memories we had that day. At least we weren't the boat that was full of chummers. How many people remember hearing that conversation on the radio?

Got this big girl this past spring pre fishing for the Cabela's MWC tournament out of Trenton Michigan. She inhaled a custom bandit purchased from Domka Outdoors. Of course the weather didn't cooperate during the tournament but a great time was had throughout the week.
