I've been too dang busy at the shop to get my pics up and reports posted, but I promise they're coming. We did catch some fun size teenagers and had a blast at the get together. Great food and even greater people!

Sorry I didn't make it boys..... I blew a bearing on my trailer on Friday, and barely got it patched up enough to get home with the boat. That sort of killed the momentum for me for the weekend. Plus, the gf ended up not going out of town like she was supposed to (insert the sound of a whip lash :oops:) and I also had some friends from out of town request to stay at my house, so we ended up just going to the game (massacre) on Sat.

I think the fall/November concept is cool, but it sure makes it a lot colder and more miserable for people to camp out on the lawn. It definitely deterred me a little bit. I had ICE on my boat on Friday morning. I'm glad everyone got on some fish. We struck out on Friday. I promise not to miss next year. Things should also be easier for me in that regard since I will no longer be in school.

Look forward to whipping some tail in the FYAOSBO this year (assuming I can get the boat fixed)

Michael you were missed for sure!

For the 2014 SSTG:

1. Learn or relearn and instrument and join the band "SHADSNOT"
2. In that you will not be in school but will be pulling down BIG BUCKS you are responsible for the Friday night BBQ meal with fixings like the Weirs did this year.
3. Have your cheap ass Dad buy you a new trailer...a tandem axle! Any responsible Daddio who lets his son drive a rig on an old faulty trailer ought t be dunked in a holding tank with emulsified, rotting gizzard shad bits.

Randy - You were missed. BTW, Patrick and Bob did not make it to this year's SSTG. Patrick was having some difficulty with his leg and his wife had him stay home. All good. I am praying that he will beat the lung cancer and have the strength tp fish in March/April. David Powell is down to take him then. Hope to see you anytime in East Tennessee.
