What an amazing event! Sat morning started off with a great send off from the local color guard and the Ashtabula Coast Guard station in the river. 5 boats led by Bill Miller in his tank headed north for a slow ride out. Everyone had their own program working and with some help from each other our 5 boats boxed up roughly 80 walleye and were back to the docks by 3. The heroes were greeted by a very large motorcycle escort to dinner. Unfortunately, no fishing on Sun due to rough seas. Still enjoyed the company and telling fish tales throughout the day. I know the guys appreciated all of the effort. Thanks for organizing, Larry Fielder "Dixie Chicken"! And thanks to the volunteers/captains, Steve, Frank, Joey, Carl "Big Daddy", Virgil, "Big Johnson", Bill, Kenny, Dave and Todd "Catch". If I missed someone, it wasn't intentional, it has been a long rewarding weekend. Thanks to all who made this happen.
