Joe Thomas

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by archman, Mar 10, 2008.

  1. Not that I'm a Browns fan, but I know he's a big fisherman. Has anyone ever seen him on the water up here in NE Ohio?

    I had heard that Joe Thomas was out on one of the great lakes with his family fishing on draft day. I guess you could say he loves to fish! I think he is supposed to be at the IX Center but I'm not sure what day.

    If you want to meet Joe in person he will be at the Cleveland Sportsman show. He will be at the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association Booth. Not sure of the days ? Check your local Newspapers I would think.

    I seen him out perch fishing just N.W. of the crib last fall with Big Daddy and a film crew. He was on the Gain Team boat about 100 yards away from me.I believe it was in September.

    Man That dude made that boat look very small.

    Rick Lacourse and Juls fished with him on Juls Gain wrapped 621, Freebryd, Juls and Rick also fished with him on a Rampage I believe that they took out from South Shore Marine.

    Here's Joe!

    Real nice guy and we all had a ball catching perch. Well, I was actually working... research for a future story on perch fishing... :D

    I'm sure there will be a big line to get his autograph.
     
  15. Joe and LECBA have teamed up to raise money for the LECBA Youth Fishing week where Lake Erie charter capt's take kids fishing free or at a big discount... Gets kids introduced to Lake Erie fishing. I think they have a poster they're selling. If anyone has more info, please post it.

    Joe's from WISCO, of course he can fish! What a silly question. ;) heheh

    We're just waiting for the ramps to open so we can get him out on the water again. He and Rick were hoping that there would be good ice this year, so Joe could try our legendary Lake Erie Ice Fishing...that wasn't meant to be though...Momma Nature is a little skitzoid this year. :(

    Hopefully, he will play in Cleveland for many years to come, so he should get a chance to in the future.

    Joe's a class act and a fun guy to have in the boat....just a really nice young man.

    He's a REAL role model for any child growing up. He's got his head on straight, and his hat still fits, if you catch my drift.

    Come on Spring! I want to go fishing!

  19. I hate the Browns but you have to respect a guy who's trolling for lakers on draft day!
     
  20. I know that after I shot him fishing with Juls and Rick, I interviewed him. It was not as Joe Thomas, LT for the Browns, but as Joe Thomas, a guy who loves to fish, hunt, and enjoy the outdoors.

    It was great. :)
