I was great to meet a few of you Saturday afternoon at the lake. I am sorry that I had to leave early, but I had to see about a patient. It was great to put some faces with the names that I have been seeing on the forum. I am glad everyone had a good time.

By the way, what is the line poundage requirements for that crankcar lure? I heard it was very effective.

Man...it was great to meet all of you guys. It's gonna be great to actually have a face and voice to put with all of these posts from now on. I already can't wait til next year.

A special thanks goes out to JB, since he helped me put my boat in at the state ramp when I arrived at the resort to find out it was totally flooded and had no good way to launch (no mention of that kill switch! )

Also, thanks to WTL for retrieving my runaway boat...BAD, BAD BOAT!!

I think the stars of the event were the cooking crew though! I'm sure we'd all agree on that. We may all feed the bait monkey from time to time, but I rather enjoyed feeding the fish monkey.

Anyways, next time I need to bring a partner so I can keep up with you AWESOME bass fisherman. I was blown away by how good you guys were. You guys really know your stuff...I'm lookin forward to learning a lot more from ya.

I'm going to post pics in my photo album tonight, and I'll say more later when I get off work, but this was an absolute blast from start to finish. There are some great stories from this weekend, and I met a lot of great people.

Watch this space for more...

Kevin is traveling home today from Kentucky Lake. I think he said he was leaving early and it was a 15 hour trip.

lol frost bit c-rig. when that cold front blew through and hour or so before that video was shot the temp dropped a lot, and i don't have as much insulation as some cameramen who shall remain nameless. yep that is me making sure the cooks are doing it right, and let me tell you they did it just right. there was a lot of great food at ky lake.

I've loaded all our pics onto my photo album. Once Kevin ok's them, go and have a look. Save them to your own computer if you want to, or I'll send you a copy that hasn't been compressed into the photo album for better quality...just tell me which one you want.

This whole weekend was incredible. It was so good to see John, Lisa, Jeff, Anthony, and Billy again, and getting to meet Kevin, Mark, Kory, Britney, JB, Zooker, Denny, Ron, Adam, and everybody else was awesome. There's a bunch of great people on here, and it showed.

Ok, everybody requested stories, so here's my favorite, and least favorite all in one. Me and my wife Louann were fishing with John and Lisa in their boat most of the weekend. Louann was throwing one of Kory's jigs, while I had just put down a Zara Spook knock-off and picked up my crankbait rod. All of a sudden, she sets the hook and starts fighting a fish. I look over, and her rod is bent waaay over. It comes to the surface and rolls real big, and I knew it was a hawg. She brings it closer to the boat, so I go to move a couple of my rods that were in the way. Sure enough, being the idiot that I am, I manage to hook her foot with one of the trebles on that Spook, all the way to the shank. She's so excited, she didn't really realize it was stuck in her until she tries to take a step, and the rod comes up with her. She starts yelling "Get the fish!" I tell her there's a hook stuck in her, she yells "Get the FISH!" I say, "But you've got..."
"GET THE FISH!!!!"

So, I get the fish, like I was told. In the process, I break her rod because I reeled in the fish too close before I lipped it, then John and I somehow manage to drop our camera when I tried to pass it to him. So we got her fish into the livewell, and I manage to snip the split ring between the lure and the treble that's still embedded in her foot. We motor back to the marina, and she and I head to the ER at Benton, about 15 minutes away. When we get there, the ER nurse brings in a white tray with needlenose pliers, wire cutters, etc. in it. Written with a Sharpie on the side of the tray are the words "Fish Hook Tray...."

Apparently this happens quite a bit.

So, they snip off the hook, push it through, and pull it out, clean as you please. We were back fishing soon after, but not before we took a quick trip to Walmart to get her antibiotic prescription filled, and pick out a new rod for her. Plus some treble hooks, a couple packs of worms for her, a new tackle bag, some worm hooks and weights......

lol that is a great story and britney and i were fishing within feet of them at the time so we got to see the whole thing. i heard louann say something about her foot but i just thought that she stuck herself a little with a hook, i had no idea it was burried in her like that.

it's great to see the bait monkey tags along on hospital trips as well.

I thought Louann was going to win the bait monkey for a while. That's a real fisherwoman when you got a trebble stuck in your foot and keep fishing.

Oh, I forgot to tell you about the fish that b!tch slapped her...

Kory took John and me out with him Friday afternoon, so Louann, Lisa, and Britney fished some off the piers at the marina. Louann hooked a small fish, and posed for a pic. When she tried to get the hook out, she held it a little too close to her face. It flopped and smacked her right in the eye with its tail. When we got back later, her left eye was already a little swollen and darker than the other one.

We had hopes she was going to win it. Then JB pulled that hawg out of his livewell, and the rest is history.

Here's a little tale on the BassinBandit, he had a professional overrun ( I refuse to my name), he got it out and I hear mumble something about the line was in the trolling motor, and then I hear "oh he77 it's not in the trolling motor I've a fish", so the whole time he thought the trolling motor was taking line it was a fish!!


He also almost joined Woody in the lake.

The real question is - Did he boat the fish?

I'm sorry I missed it but it was better that I stayed home. The wife came home a day early because one of her friend's kids got hand foot and mouth disease. Now our 21 month old has it .

With those guys in that room, you would have needed a haz-mat suit to protect yourself from all that being told .

Jump on in Bandit, the water is fine! LOL




It all happened so fast and before I knew it I was in over my head, thinking -man this is no joke-, I just fell out of my boat!

For all of you that are interested in the details of my mishap here ya go. Fishing from the front of my boat amongst some heavy cover(stumps, stick ups) flipping a jig, I noticed a fast approaching stump that I thought that I could push off of with my right foot in order to avoid bumping it with the side of my boat, MAN WAS I EVER WRONG! LOL As soon as my weight shifted to the stump, that was now crumbling away, I was drinking water quicker than you can say "Woody You Big Dummy!". LOL

A moment that I will never forget.

I did have a dry jacket in the boat that kept me from looking like a complete idiot heading back to the boat dock. And being from up north helped out too, considering those cold wintry temps that we had to deal with, so this really wasn't so bad.

By the way my previously waterlogged camera is now starting to show signs of life which is a good thing.

Great story Sippy!

I saw your pics in the album! The hook went deep for sure! And a good fish too, on both your parts!

btw, that was a sammy in her foot right?
