    sure was nice meeting new people and seeing the old ones again. And as mentioned the food was fantastic. Someone has a bunch of leftovers to deal with. Maybe the night fishermen can handle that.

    It sure was good to see everyone yesterday, I had a great time, and the food was great! I guess the best part of the day was watching "the fisherman formally known as Cuz," get into a "TIGHT SPOT" LMFAO X 10000!:smile2::smile2::smile2::tounge_out::cool2:

    I had a wonderful time at the meeting. It was interesting watching all the happy faces of the people the joined the club. The fishing part of the gathering was not all that great cuz we got caught in the rain. :wink: the bites were slow but fish was still caught i know that it's gonna get better here in a few weeks or so. But on the other hand it was something to remember. Oh yeah thanks to all the chefs that prepared all the great food we had. And a special thanks to Mrs. Okie for that awesome banana pudding you made.:big_smile_2:

    Well, Yesterday, John wanted to go check out some water behind some moored barges. So we go back there, and there is probably about 35 feet between the bank and the barges, and the barges are moored off by cables, attached to big white steel floats, which are attached to the bank by very large chains. Well, the wind was blowing against us, and we couldn't get the boat under the cables. The boat ended up against the steel float, with the motor going into the rocks and the chain. John pushed his foot against the float to keep the boat off of it, and when he did, the float moved, he lost his balance, and fell in.:smile2: It was very graceful, as I didn't even ask if he was OK, I just asked, "where's your phone at" as he said in my upper pocket, and it was OK. He only went in up to his belly, he was dang near treading water to stay in the boat as he grabbed on the the rail as he went over. I grabbed him, pulled him back in the boat, and we both laughed. I for one, think he's due for a name change, and here's why...

    1. The night I caught my 65, his bilge had so much water in it, the boat wouldn't even plane off. He said. "Dang, I knew something wasn't right, my truck was struggling to pull it up the hill"

    2. Auto Inflato. He autoinflated his life vest while throwing the bait net at Alton. He was trying to ditch the inflated vest as fast as I was looking for a camera.

    3. Drag Chute Incident. While returning home from the Shootout last October, our drift sock flew out of the back of the boat running 70mph down I-70. It looked like the parachute out of the back of John Force's funny car. Then again, he escaped a name change.

    Now we have this incident, and I believe it's due.:smile2::smile2: Yesterday, he was the "fisherman formally know as Cuz" Now, I think since he was in a "TIGHT SPOT", the name fits! LMAO:big_smile::crazy::wink:

    I am not sure if "tight spot "is degrading enough after all the nutrolls you just described.:big_smile:
