    First off I would like to thank Eric Maurer a ton for taking me fishing Friday. The nicest guy ever. He didn't know me we talked on the phone for a few mins. and we made the plans. We hit the water at first light and got to the hole, and it was awesome. I think it had been 10 mins. and I had a 14lber in the boat. I don't know how many fish came into the boat that morning but it was a lot. It was getting to be time to go but we hit one more hole. This guy wanted me to boat a nice fish. so I dropped the skippy down and bam, I had a nice fish on. When he hit the surface he was a lot bigger than I or eric thought he was. Netted him and that Ended up being the best day I have ever fished. I want to thank Eric again, the guy wouldn't even let me help with gas.
