Iknow Jim, but I don't have his phone number,...if he's at the Lk.Orion GNT tonite, I'll tell him you'd like to talk to him,.....hopefully he has a PC and can get ahold of you via this website......no promises, but I'll let him know if he's there tonite!!

Hey Madman...just got our service back a while a go and thought I'd check the board. If you need a partner to break in that Ranger, let me know! I'm still unemployed at the moment, so any time you are available to hit the water works for me (your boat or mine). I have a SEMBA tourney on St. Clair next weekend, so if we can get out on the big water before then for some early scouting, that would be sweet. Give me a call and let me know what works for you.

One more thing....took a neighbor out on Kent for some early morning action on Monday...wouldn't you know, he pulled in a 21" largie that went 4.94 on the Salter (damn newbies!)...I, however, did manage a couple Dinks :)...LOL

jeff,

what day are you thinkin. it would have to be a little later in the week. like a thursday. if you can swing it on thursday, you can meet me out in warren or at the lake. unfortunatly, after the power outage, i will be too busy at work to take a day off. but we can fish from 5 pm til whenever.

So I take it you bought the Ranger? I need to check with the wife, but Thursday might just work for me. I'll check tonight and get back with you later today or tomorrow...

im free. im thinking we should take mine. because its already out here. plus you wont have to worry about hauling anything back home once we got off the water.
but if you would rather use your boat, that works for me as well.

give me a call thursday. i will be off work at 4:30 pm. its only about 15 minutes to the water from where i work.

Hey Brian, I left you message on your cell but thought I'd post here as well...gotta bail on you tonight, sorry. I promise we'll get out on the water sometime this year (soon I hope, I need it!).

jeff,

i am here whenever you have time. my cel is shot, so just email me your # when you are ready to get out. there are no commitments i have that are more important than getting you out on some water. looking foward to catching some fish ( or at least netting yours ).
just try to keep the 14 lb carp out of the new ranger
