    I met a friend on here, calls himself Big Muddy. As most of you know He has gone and joined up with that there Navy. All kidding aside Shane is a very cool person, and if you ever have the chance to meet him or have the good fortune to fish with him you should. Shane ships out today I think, and I missed the chance to fish with him one last time before he leaves, schedules couldnt line up. Anyway, just started this to wish you luck ol friend, have fun, say yes sir, and never fear those of us who fish Rend on a regular basis will take care of your lake for you while your gone. You will be missed while you are away.

    I had the good fortune to fish with Shane on the big river back in May. We talked a little about his future plans with the Navy, and I found him to be a really good guy. His posts on here are insightful and good natured. Good luck and thank you for your willingness to serve Shane.

    Had a good time fishing with Big Muddy last Tuesday evening. We didn't do very good but spending a couple hours with Shane on Rend is always good. I guess he just had his first day in basic training, and wondering what he got himself into, but he is the type who can deal with it. The biggest problem he will have is "Catfishing withdrawl" Good Luck Shane!

    Shane is a great guy which I was Honored to meet and visit with a few times. He is a very knowledgeable fisherman and contribute lots of lake information. He is willing to help anyone at a drop of the hat. He will be missed in this area but hope he will have a computer to check in from time to time. We wish him the best in his new endeavour.

    Good luck to Shane. I know what he's going through right now. Boot camp is in Great Lakes which is north of Chicago. It still gets pretty hot up there. I know because I was up there at about the same time of year, but that was almost 10 years ago.
