    Don't pay any attention to the date on the picture. I don't know why that date is on there,because that picture was taken sometime in July of this year.

    I think you are right about that. I was pre-fishing last week for a tournament last Saturday,and he wanted to go with me pretty bad. I talked him out of going with me though,because I knew I'd be using different bait than I used when I took him,and the bites would probably be a lot slower,and I didn't want him to loose interest. Now he's going to be starting back to school next Wednesday,so I'll have to take him on a weekend. I really want to take him in October when the fish start schooling up for the winter. That's just about as good a fishing as right after ice out.

    Great Pics of your trip Glenn, and you know you did the correct thing on the 1st outing, thats how I fish with my Little girl, we fish for a bit, then well if it's time to go to the bank and look for shells, or throw rocks then thats where we head! Don't want to "bore" or burn them out. By the way I like that cleaning table ya got there.

    I had that cleaning table built about 3 years ago. I designed it and then had a friend of mine who runs a welding shop weld it together. Most of it was material I found at the salvage yard. The most expensive thing that I had to buy were the 2 swivel locking casters that I have on one end of the table. I think actual money that I have invested in the whole thing is about $125,and a little time rooting around at the salvage yard to come up with the materials. I just got tired of the wooden tables rotting out all of the time. With the swivel locking casters on 2 legs I can move it around anywhere I want to. My friend at the welding shop told me if I would have used all new materials to build that table,I would have between $400-$500 in it.

    Hey I can believe that Glenn, but there is nothing wrong with spending a few hours "trollin" around the local salvage lot for them hidden treasures, been accused of have to much fun doing that :wink: Do ya have water hook up on yers?

    No,I don't have water hooked up to my table. I guess I never thought about hooking up water to it,because like I said I very rarely use the table in the same spot in the yard. I don't like to work in the sun if I don't have to! If it is raining then I just roll it into the garage. If I had it hooked up to water,I wouldn't be able to move it around like I want to. If I had it sit up permanently,I would definitely have it hooked up to water. I also use it when I'm making sinkers. It just makes a very versatile table that can be used for about anything you want to use it for.
