WALLY I had a great time guys! Nice meeting a few more dudes from the boards. Thanks for everything; bait, gas for the auger, beers, raffle prizes....cough cough $105 cough for that dinky white bass that won big fish. Honestly I thought that fish was gonna get blown out of the water. Really suprised when it was big fish time and mine turned out to be the winner in that category.

To bad we can only do one of these chain outtings a year.

Went back and fished into the night and I did good on crappies; 7 between 9 and 11", one pig over 12 on a glow genz worm and crappie minnow deadsticking.
No comment on the luck others had....sorry dude.

The Little King Looks like I will make the Henerys derby.

I talked with John from Lees the other day, and the store will be closed while he is on vacation from Febuary 9 - 23

JC Thanks for a great outing guys!

Brought my buddy Joe Montana (Yeah, that's his real name).

Had a nice bite in the first 10 minutes, but lost it near the hole. That was the ONLY bite we had all day! We moved 4 times & had 4 tip-ups set on the bottom with crawlers for cats. No luck there either.

We each got a raffle prize & finally met Ed & Tubes.

Thanks again. Anyone going to Henry's tourney at Belmont Saturday?

Bassinator And he also puts oxygen tablets in with the minnows and roaches. I never had anyone do that.

afisherman He even does that with crawlers and leeches! Great guy, he knows how to make his customers happy.

Tubes77 No problem on the "secret spot" (Deep Lake in Lake Villa ). I appreciate the effort, but I'm not one for keeping spots a secret as long as it can take a little pressure. The truth is after you guys left, the fishing picked up! Anyway, Gus your post reminded me. Thank you to John at Lee's Dollar plus for providing all the spikes and waxies for the derby. If anyone needs quality bait at affordable prices, give John a try!

I stopped in there last week and was amazed to see him open up each container of waxies and spikes I bought, culled out a couple of dead ones and then replace them with additional live ones! Most places hand you the little cup and you get what you get. It's service like that that makes me drive a little out of my way to get bait from John. THANK YOU!

(which reminds me, thanks for the Beer Gus!)
No sweat. That cool pic you took of me, and that place you put us on, it was a cheap beer. Thanks again.

I'd also like to add my thanks to Ed and The Little King. From the stuff given for the raffle, to the free bait, the great location, the very generous payouts, I am as impressed by this site as ever. Thank you for your hard work.
