Winter giveaway contest - thanks!

Last winter, I saw the various fishing trips and thought it would be fun to learn to float tube fish. So I entered the contest to float tube with AWB over and over and over and won. Last weekend, Jim and went to Teal was great. I can tell you AWB knows so much about fishing and was a good teacher for the float tube. He was patient and I think had a laugh at me when I realized I forgot my tent poles (luckily he brought a second tent). If you ever get the chance to fish with AWB, you should go. I wish I had a picture to share, but didn't think about that until this morning. So thanks for Fish Explorer for hosting the winter giveaway and to AWB for putting himself out there like that.

Congrats on wining the trip with Jim. He is a wealth of knowledge and great guy to fish with!

Hey Ron, had a great time. Next time I'll check the stocking report closer. There seems to be a significant difference in size from the sub-catchable and the catchables that are stocked. LOL What Ron didn't mention is, we literally got bite after bite but rarely hooked up. Most fish caught were around 4 to 5". Because the sub-catchables is what was stocked. We'll go again and I'll make it up to you. I'll even bring you a can of Ravioli (yuck).

You took to the tube like a duck to water and it pleased me to no end how happy you looked kicking around out there.

I don't know how many times I entered to win that but I'm glad you won! Sounds like I dodged a bullet there.
