Mac, it was nice to see you again. Thanks for making my sons smile. They love your artwork. I will be digging out my past BASS Times for them to check out. As busy as you were, you really helped us out. Did you know that those reels spin forever?? Can't wait to use them.
Mini, Doug and Bob B., it was great to meet you. Thanks for saying hi to the boys and, Mini, they think they're going to outfish me now 'cause the stuff you gave them is "the best". They thought it was great that you spoke of the hump, to them. Thanks.
Jon Bondy from All-Star, thanks for taking the time to talk. It's been awhile and it was nice to see you.
Chip, thanks for giving the hat to my son. He hasn't stopped wearing it yet.
It was a great day of fun (and buying) that also included a couple of nice rainbows (from the pond) for dinner.

I too would like to thank all the people from Bass Pro Shops for providing Dan and myself with the opportunity to come down, talk and meet everyone. I've never been to any kind of show where I've been made more welcome, where so many people have gone out of their way to say 'thanks for coming' and 'we're really glad you guys are here'. What a great experience the weekend was. When you guys see Jeff and Tom, thank them for us again.
Mac, thanks for name tag, got it scanned already in case anything happens to it. Doug, thanks for putting up with us all weekend. Mini, got a buddy up here who has the same problems when he tries to juggle two at once, if you're up this way I'll hook you up for some friendly Ballet Tournament competition. To everyone else who stopped by the booth, thanks for checking us out and hopefully I can hitch a ride and do this all again come April 5-6.

This was probably one of the best shows (actual during show hours) I have ever been part of!

Topwater with the boy's...you are the reason we continue!!!! I am very pleased that you have actually thought of our future, teach those kids all that you can. When you have an extra 5 min. I'll teach them all I know.

Muskie Bob, I figure I had better get my digs in now, I'm getting older and my GOD....you're getting younger! FOR ALL OF YOU THAT ATTENDED BOB'S SEMINAR, I HAD TO GO ON STAGE AND WRESTLE THE MIC FROM BOB! THE OTHER GUYS SAID IF I DIDN'T GET THAT MIC FROM HIM THEY WOULD TAKE IT OUT ON ME! Two young guy's or Bob, I figured I could take Bob....Once again I was wrong!

Canadian Open (Dan and Brad) it really wasn't me tolerating you, it was two seperate trails speaking with each other on what has worked and what hasn't worked. Sharing info with a common goal. TAKE CARE OF THE ANGLERS AS BEST AS WE CAN!!!!! (Shout it out loud!) If you need anything from the State's, call and I'll do my best to help!

Thanks for laughs and tales of your adventures! I have grown, in my weight and as a person!

Hey guys want to thank everyone for making our event such a huge success. It's guys like each of you that really make Bass Pro such a great place to work and shop. It's the team effort that pulls off such an overwhelmingly successful event. Now that I have had a few days to rest anyway!

By the way Took Keith K out to Lake St. Clair yesterday off Selfridge. The Ice was really good about 18" of clear ice with 3" of honey comb on top. Got about 30 big jumbos. The biggests was 13 1/2" We only kept what was over 10 inch's. Great Bite in the morning then it tailed off fast! Saw a few huge fish in the 15-16 inch category. They are really filling up with eggs now and look gigantic in the water!

Anyway thanks to all for the time and efforts! Tom!

Your Welcome.

Pleasure spending my money there. The guys are super. It's just a great place to shop. One guy who worked the reel counter must have spend 20/30 minutes helping me out. Put together a combo for me and just helped out in a way that showed his pride and love for what he did. I believe his name was Don.
