and my fav guide on my fav lake. First Bernie pulls the rope outta the starter of my fav machine he has...shoulda seen the look on his face. Then in true Bernie fashion and tradition, is totally professional in scooting us around. Man we worked hard for dude, and he worked twice as hard for us. Group today was me, Tthepikester, Soxfan n Bernie, Z had to work but sent his best to Bernie via Soxfan with a resounding slap to the back of Bernie's head, which Bernie in turn returned the favor to Z via me in "This one's for Z". Z I'm gonna pass it on when I see ya. We each caught a fish. Sox lost 2 more than likely bigguns, but was his 1st time out with this crew, and it can be rough...we work hard. Another biggun for me, I'm easily double digits on double digit fish. To finish the trip my fav guide's battery was dead. Left him there with 2 good machines and 1 dead one. Wonder if he ever made it home ;D j/k glad I had jumper cables. Can't wait for ice off and my next trip with Z n Bernie next month.
