Well, I finally registered - been reading these posts for almost 3 years and figured I should finally sign up :) I retired 2 years ago July, bought a boat with another couple and am looking forward to getting out more often this year than I have been able to in the past couple years. I was a police commander for the last 24 years of my 30 year career in law enforcement - also a Vietnam Vet (Army).

Love the site and I read the new posts everyday - just never had anything worth adding so I never signed up. Glad to be here now though.

Joe

Hey Joe, Glad to see you signing up. Does this mean you're gonna be making some fishin' reports?

Hopefully soon. Got to finish up some stuff on the boat first. I tentatively will be putting it in the water at Shabonna next Friday, weather permitting.

Wellcome to the site Joe. You might reconsider the retiring part- I've been retired for a couple of years now and think I might return to work so I can take some vacation time....

Best wishes for big fishes,

Bruce

Thanks for all the great welcomes - I feel like I'm right at home here :) Thanks and welcome home to all my fellow Vietnam vets - and thanks to all the other veterans, police officers and smoke eaters too.... :flag We've earned our retirements and quality fishing time :) :)
