I got home a little while ago from the Central Iowa gathering. I didn't catch any fish but I won one hell of a rod and reel combo. I met some outstanding people, fished the bridiges of Des Moines and learned some new fishing techniques. It was a good time and I did get to hear the clicker on my Penn go off. I failed to hook up on him and that's a good thing for Mike. I know from looking from what was left of my bait that the fish was a double digit monster! LOL Steve and Chris...THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HARD WORK, PLANNING, BAIT CATCHING, SCOUTTING, AND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU ALL DID THAT WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT!!!! IT WAS A GREAT WEEKEND!!!! Mike...you are a RIOT! Can't wait to fish with you again. Actually, I can't wait yo fish with all of you again! Catmandingo & Grahmdragon...Thanks for letting me crash in your tent! That worked out pretty good for all of us. You guys got to sleep in your own bed and I didn't have to set up my tent at 3 AM. Dingo, your right. That thing under the air mattress was huge! LOL Man we'll have them 309's mastered and screaming soon! Alright...This is the most excitment of Saturaday night. The picture! Is this what happens when someone is found fishing in the favorite spot of a bridge brother? They may wear flip-flops but they are bad ass! You make the call... Thanks for a great time this past weekend Bridge Brothers and Sisters!!!
