    Hey all,
    I didn't figure anyone would mind me showing a couple pics that bring it home to me...my son Bobby and I were on Long Lake again last Saturday, 3/30/08...we got ourselves back up the Tusc, to our "Hideyhole" and out of the wind pretty well...'56 Johnson 10 hp. motor on the smaller 14' 1982 Basstracker was running great...so was the 24 volt Bow mount Brute...we tried a few different things and experimented with live baits on the bottom and some Crappie rigs, not much happening there...Bobby has a new "Cherrywood" 5'6" rod with a Johnson Spincast Reel he got as a door prize at the Falls Outdoor Sports Show it was texas rigged for the bottom ...I picked up my own new outfit it's first time out, an 11 bearing Daiwa Advantage HSTA on a new Quest IM-7 rod...third or fourth cast and Bingo! Who's a happy guy? This fifteen incher came on a Texas rigged 4" Berkeley Twistertail in Blue. Doesn't look like he was too hungry. I guess the pictures tell the rest, you can see my net man there, catch, photo, and release, of course. We had a pretty great day, and we make a good team together. A little later, he stepped around me and took the pedal controls to keep the boat off a downed tree as we were drifting on the river while I took care of a little "professional override" on one of the other reels. He sure did a good job and he "saved the bacon" a couple of times that day. Pretty proud Papa here.
