Today, GH and I met up with CTA member JFDBasser...Scott and his Dad Rick at the WRC club.
Scott also happens to be a WRC member but has only recently hooked up with GH.
Image
We decided to hit the back pits again today and it turned out to be the right decision.
Scott and Dad shadowed Capt. GH's command ship into the great out back.
Image
It wasn't long until fish started surrendering.
The Capt. was pleased.
Image
Here, you see myself helping one a doze Hoochie types to surrender.
Image
Scott and Dad Rick got right into the swing of things with Dad showing the young guy how it's done pulling in a Fat Gill and a nice Red Ear back to back.
This gal fell for the feller in the best lookin' hat-O-Da Day.
Image

A little later, someone unnamed whose initials are SCOTT Flubbed a nice Kitty cat right at the boat tryin' an old Bass heave. I'da GOTDANET for 'em.
Speakin' of those green fish, we all boated a few today but the largest of them was only about 14".

We got into a variety of fish today. Some nice Perch, a single Crappie and a bunch of nice 8+
Gills for the pan. Team 2 also did well but sorry to say I didn't get any photos of their catch.
One of the girls also fell for the other guy with a straw hat.
Image
The catching was pretty fair most of the day.
Image
The weather co-operated with mid 80 temps, some gusty winds and a little cloud cover to boot.

All in all another hit at the pit.
Thanks once again to GH for the invite. It was great to meet Scott and Rick and, I got to test drive my new Rapala Electric knife !!!

Hey John,
Great pics. My Dad and I had a great time meeting you and Angelo. The old man definately put a whoopin on me...we had a ton of fun though. I really do need to bring a net with....that kitty I lost would have gone great for dinner. We ended up with about 18 nice gill and 5 nice perch to fillet...the guys at the engine house have been bugging me for a fish fry all summer...looks like they got their wish. We'll definately have to meet up out there again. It is a very special place to fish...to bad the ramp sucks ;-). I thought my blackhawks hat was pretty nice, but I've got nothing on you two.

Oh, BTW, my Dad is Rick with a K at the end....hehe. And he reminded me to keep the invite to his little shack in TN open at all times.....a spring Crappie trip might have to be in the works.

Scott, changed dad to Rick. Won't forget the invite.
Geo. Great catchin' not like H.
WSJ, Kept the old Blades from the first Rapala knife. I used the small ones with surgical precision.
The new knife came with a set of longer blades.
Val, yes, I bought it from a rice farmer when I was over there in 66. It has held up well don't you think? :doh
Jeff, still wondering what the inside of that CCAC looks like. :D

I know John, we've bee talking about it for some time. I'm optimistic that you won't have to wait until I too am retired. :D

There is this issue of some harvest moon michigan walleye that I need to take care of, but after that it just might be time for fall crappie in the pits. We'll talk.
