Just wanted to take the time and thank you again for an amazing trip Friday (1/23/09). I've seen plenty of pictures of big bass but never dreamed that I would have the chance to see one up close, much less at the end of my rod. An 11.13, still can't believe it! I dreamed about catching her all night last night and woke up this morning feeling like a million bucks!
I posted a couple of times on the TFF but wanted to share one in particular. In a post I stated that you had earned my business for a lifetime, not just because you put me on the fish of a lifetime, but because you have taught me so much. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to explain the area we are fishing as well as why we are fishing it. You're a rare breed, someone that loves his job and loves to teach those that want to learn.
I talked to Patrick for about an hour last night. He was definitely excited for me and became more excited when he realized he'd get his shot at a big'un in two months. I know he's counting down the days to spring break. We've had a blast on our trips with you.
So, once again, thank you for a great trip. If there is ever anything I can do to help you in any way, just let me know!
