Due to a light stroke in mid December of 2017, I am getting reay to tip my toe back into the sport this spring. Since they are holing opens in a couple of lake I know a little bit about, I will be fishing as coangler in 2 of the Texas BASS opens on Lake Lewisville and Sam Rayburn. I think it will be good to get back in the sport and fish competitively again will be fun. I hope I hope I get to see some old friends and make new ones. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I also fished a couple little tourneys at Alan Henry with my little brother while he was at Tech and your name sounds real familiar but I dunno. Anyway, good luck to you sir.

Good Lord willing I'm going to try and hit that last one on Rayburn, if so, let's link. We can prefish as well, if it happens I'm going to take the whole week off.

I think the last time we fished together was a long time ago, on Fork, and if memory serves me right, we had an 80 mph run to the dam, you had a heat stroke and I ended up towing you around hanging off the back of my Gambler as you tried to cool off. Don't let me be a dumba** again and not take you to the Dr..... breakdance

Glad you're feeling better Thad.


Keep the Lord in your heart and keep your powder dry.
