    reelmanly Set The HOOK!!!!!!!!

    Twas the night before Christmas when all thru the site
    members were posting with joy and delight
    messages were screened by the staff with great care
    allowing some good ones for all to share

    I know all were not nestled snug in their beds
    some checking their list some painting jig heads
    Mom in her nightie I was watching Bill Dance
    whoever thought I'd pass up the chance

    Cause out on the lawn I heard such a clatter
    sounded like a bait with some kinda chatter
    away to the window I flew like a flash
    faster than getting a good ol backlash

    the moon on the breast of the new fallen snow
    even glittered off my bass boat as I looked down below
    When what to my wondering eyes should appear
    a 20 foot Triton loaded with gear

    With a fat old driver so lively and quick
    I knew that moment it must be Saint Nick
    powered by a Merc and a rooster tail of snow
    it was headed for my house HO HO HO

    he shouted out loud and called my name
    Chuck get your gear fishin's the game
    I was out of my house and in the passenger's seat
    left a wake of snow at least 10 feet

    we were headed south to a lake called Murray
    geez the fat man was in a big hurry
    the Lowrance was set to put us right down
    on the biggest fat bass with no one around

    he hotfooted back and and we drifted right in
    start makin casts he said with a grin
    was a jig and pig he handed to me
    made by the elves so painfully

    never felt the hit but my line was a movin
    that twinkle in his eye he knew I was groovin
    I set the hook with a violent big jerk
    yep he knew that bait would work

    The fight was on but I didn't flounder
    he looked at me and said "Shoot son that's an 11 pounder"
    I looked at him and he resembled old Roland
    I boated the Bass and that's no foolin

    He laid his finger beside his nose
    thought he was pickin a booger but than we rose
    the next thing I knew we were back at the house
    and I wasn't even missed by my lovely spouse

    I just stood there holding this big ol fat bass
    and thought to myself Christmas at last
    my list was fullfilled a Bass dream come true
    soon my family will be up for christmas too

    and as I looked up and saw him blasting away
    I know that I heard the jolly fat man say
    Merry christmas to all and to all a good night
    on one of the BEST the OGF website
