Your personal and fishing accomplishments:
Best Fishing Story: I guess one could say, every time I go fishing there is a story that could follow, for example: I had taken a former member Denis Grondins son fishing on Wilson Pd. moving down the bank running a spinner bait, realized Eric was not saying much and as I turned around to ask a question saw he had the butt end of rod in his mouth while reeling the spinner bait leisurely through the water and before I could say a word he had a huge hit which turned out to be a 5# plus largemouth he did land it in the boat. I would not recommend this method especially if you have false teeth.
Another would be fishing with my fiancée, her first time, first cast with a spinner bait, her first backlash, and after 5 minutes of working out the backlash handed her the rod only to hear her say I have something which turned out to be a 3# 8 oz smallmouth bass which had had taken the bait lying on the bottom for 5 minutes.
Fishing the 2010 state fish off on China Lake on 2nd day with Dwayne Turnage, I had just mentioned to him how I hate catching a bass on my 1st cast it always seems to be a bad omen for the rest of the day, he echoed the same as he zipped his bait back to the boat, On my 3rd cast I landed the 6#15 oz largemouth, that along with 4 other fish was enough to finish 13th and make the State team. Every time I go fishing there is a story that follows...Thanks Dad for that very first fishing rod you bought me......
