Well theres also my partner Parma Bass and Zach's partner Jeff Johnson in the mix. Zach and his partner have fished the Ladue series for two years now and all I've heard is what a great lake it is. I fished the fall open with Zach last September and I have to agree. There aren't many lakes in our area that you can pull almost 17 lbs in 5 bass out of it. I was thrilled when Parma Bass told me he needed a partner for the series this year and agreed to fish it with him. Of course the Reels are butting heads now. Both of us has sworn that they would rather fall in the lake and sink to the bottom then let the other one beat them. So the battle begins! I've already told Zach I'm going to spank him like I did when he was a toddler. He told me it would never happen. Let the fun and competition begin! I had to post this to fuel the fire a little more... as if the fire needs fueled.
