Woops!!

I got my paperwork today for the Banquet.

And there it is in big bold letters.

All adults must be members to attend.

You also need to send in your dinner reservations asap.

So it looks like you have to be a member before you get to the banquet pauly.

The membership is $10 for a year and the banquet ticket is $15.

I believe that Merkman's mother won an underwater camera. I thought that's what we cut a larger hole for!

yep merks mom won a camera and my wife won a ladies watch.

This banquet was a really great time and my wife and I met a lot of really great people and laughter was pretty much non stop. The meal was exellent also and man did they give away alot of prizes. I would highly recomend that if your not a member you should become one.

My son had a great time-they give away prices to all of the kids under 16. We need to get the kids involved to keep this sport going. Dinner was good and there were a lot of great prices. I finally got to meet the infamous (I mean famous) Merkman. It was good to see Elwood also, I really thought I had the winning ticket for the fish house-maybe next year Good to see you guys won some prices-my son took home a Crossman BB gun and was just tickled, was asking when the next one was

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
