I decided not to renew my guide license this year. It seems as if I spend most of my time building thumpers now days and don't get to fish as often as I would like. Especially during the winter season when thumper order numbers are way up.
I only got to fish about 3 days this past winter.
That isn't near half as often as when I had a real job before I started my backhoe business 20 years ago.
Thanks for all the opportunities to take those of you who booked trips out to catch a bunch of fish. I really enjoyed being a part of your outdoor memories.
I haven't logged on to TFF often lately but will try to be more diligent with that.
Thumpers are in stock and waiting for your orders so give me a shout.

My son bought a thumper from you almost 2 years ago and we use it all of the time. It really works to bring in fish and to keep the fish around longer.

I’m not retiring from everything yet. I still have my backhoe service that produces our main income. I will also continue to build thumpers for everyone even though it takes time from my lake time. I just want to fish for fun more often. I’ve had more calls for trips this year than I got in six months last year. Wouldn’t you know it? Lol
Banker. I really enjoy when folks let me know how much my thumpers have helped them have better days catching fish. It never gets old.
Anyone who wants a thumper can give me a call. I have several ready for new homes.

I wonder if a thumper would drive away the moles and gophers I have in my yard? Nothing else seems to work.

I tried that sir. No it will not run them out of your yard. I use malathion to kill the grubs and other food sources they like to eat. Usually works. I try to trap the gophers in my neighbors yard before they get to mine. You should send the convict weiner dog after them. Lol
