What a perfect day! The smiles and laughter of children.... it does a heart good. applause
Great job by Paul to put this event together and thanks to everyone that helped to make today so special for the kids.

Joe, you're awesome!!! Everybody loved your the magic act! bowdown

It was a blast having LargeFry and his son along with me today. AJ has taught his son well, he's already a really good fisherman. He threw a jig and pig, a senko or a D/S all morning. For the most part, we found our fish holding tight under docks. We fished the places where he decided we shouuld go and stayed until he felt it was time to move-it was his day on the water I was just along for the ride.
We ended up with a sunnie, a yellow perch 3-4 smallies and 3-4 largies including his beautiful 2.25lber on the jig under a dock. rawk

Good Times!! Here's a bunch of pictures from the day

What an awesome day. Truly another first class event put together by CTF and some of it’s finest members. My family had a great time and even though Nick missed the magic show and only fished for about a ½ hour it was still well worth the effort to go. My wife logged a ton of miles behind the wheel this weekend but Olivia and I got to spend some quality time together and that is worth it’s weight in gold.

To everyone that helped put this together and make it what it was Thank You! I am on the road 6 days a week and don’t see my family much so a day like this is priceless. We all had a great time, good fishing, good food, great entertainment, and spending some time with family and friends.

- Mark

My mom, daughters and niece fueling up before hitting the water, with Team Chris Med in the background. Nice touch leaving the donuts and drinks for us latecomers. Thank you.

With the slight breeze, I decided to throw the anchor. Didn't take us long to start landing some sunnies and perch on worms with bobbers.


My oldest daughter, Pamela, scored first with a perch then a sunnie.




My niece Allison got in the action with a sunny.


Next, my youngest daughter, Samantha, got in the game with a perch.

Live fish. Better than any video game. biggrin


Brandon J. proudly displays his bass. The line of the day had to be when Brandon weighed in his fish and Joe asked him what he caught it on. He looked at Joe and gave him a one-word serious reply: "Dropshot."

LOL!

After the magic, it was pizza time! Paul, again, great call on the idea for pizza. The kids love it (so did the adults) and it's convenient.

Wow!! What can I say tha already hasn't been said. Like most of our other events this one just seems to get better every year. Smallfry and I had fun the whole way through, we were even the last ones to leave as we poked around to find a geocache or two afterwards. Our Captain was awesome, THANKS JON!! The fish treated us ok, JOE WAS AWESOME!! The food was good and the prizes were great. SmallFry's friends were greener than a largemouth when they saw the haul he brought home this year. Thanks again to Mitch, Paul and everyone else at CTF!!

Thanks for the great pic too Jon!!

What a crew we have at CTF ! ! applause
My oldest daughter Emily just joined a different travel Softball team, the STING, so I took my youngest daughter Rachel and her friend Lexi.. They were fishing with their Barbie rods( Ya, really ! ) and I was throwing spinner baits out there and letting them reel it in. Rachel hooked into the 1 lb smallie, her eyes lit up, and could barely reel it in !! party2



Lexi got a sunny, and perch,BUT both engulfed the bait. banghead I had to let them go without the picture.

The rest of the time, they listened to their E-Pod, dunked their heads looking for fish, and being typical 9 year old girls



Mitch comes up to us, I snapped this before his daughter wanted to go FAST because it was hot out biggrin


There they go ! !


This was another GREAT event, and am glad everyone had a great time..

Thank you to Joe the Magician, great show as always .
Plum Tomato for the pizzas, and delivery..
Andrew at Fishing Factory for hooking us all up with the tackle boxes. Everyone else that helped out ,brought donations, tables, and kids !! applause
