Well we tried, but no luck for us. Beautiful day with great company and awesome picnic afterwards. Congrats to Cwood, Mitch and Glenn. It was nice meeting a bunch of new people and seeing a few old friends, great chili, rabbit stew and pasta salad. Looking forward to next year. Oh here are some nice photos I caught LOL
I may only have one and a half legs, but I still stand tall, life goes on.
Congrats to the winners who where Mitch, Chris and Glenn.
I was watching my Daughter opening her bridal shower gifts, and no chit I really did this. I raised my Glass and toasted to the beautiful sky and said, "Please let them Catch Pike"
Glad you caught 2............ Post up the Pictures

What a gorgeous day! The pike bite wasn't great but we got one, and within casting range of the ramp!!!! LOL Thanks to Paul for heading this and for Mitch to keep it going. We got two bass as well but stuck to just pike baits. Food was great and the conversation afterwards priceless as always! Glad we had the morning Fireball to keep warm!
Was nice to have a 15 minute ride home for once!!!!!!!!
