this can be the thread to share your experiences at the '08 rend lake gathering. i had a great time and was glad to meet old friends as well as new ones. the food was amazing. Paul did an awesome job of spearheading this thing. alot of people on the list didnt show up, but thats ok, we had a blast. Tonto and Jeselder did an awesome job on the fish. Travis, that goose was amazing. Bigcat, i am a big fan of fried okra. congrats little cat on the nice new rig. dan, charlie, dinia, and racheal, thanks for having me out to camp this week. i had fun hangin out with you guys. the lack of fish caught didnt do this lake much justice, we got it right in the middle of the spawn so the fishing was slow at best. alot of the time, i catch a lot of fish in this lake. most times out i catch at least 6 and in the big fish contest we had 7 people in the boat and got skunked, but that wasnt what mattered to me. what mattered to me was getting together with all of you guys and havin a good time. thanks to all that attended and im praying that my vacation is around the same time next year.
