I can't begin to express how much I appreciate this and how thrilled I am to have won. I'm still puzzled about why there were no more vets that entered than there were because I know they are out there. Thank you F4F, and everyone else that made this happen.

Congrats Jmichael........I will stand by the free rod, Russ said he would pick up the tab for the freight. You will have one of the newest concept guides on the market, however it will only work for a spinning rod. When you get the package there will be a business card with our phone number on it. Please call me to discuss the colors on the wrap and length of rod you desire.....and leave the rest to us to make you one bad ass rod. Retail value of 165 bucks. Thank you to all my veteran brothers and sisters, Go Navy.


See ya

Well guys, the package arrived today, and all I can say is WoW!!! This is like Xmas all over again. While I was laying it all out for a photo I think I counted 75 individual items or packages with most of it being packages containing multiple items. And that doesn't Include the fantastic rod so generously donated by Kevin, AKA Bigwave. I can't begin to thank you all enough but I want you all to know that I really do appreciate this.

I apologize for the delay, however we will start building your rod probably tomorrow.......My rod builder has completed 28 rods since xmas and you are next.......We will be build your crappie/bass rod just as you requested.

OK, this has been pushed back so many times it's not even funny any more. Even though it may not look like it, Kevin/Bigwave and I kept in touch via PM's. The rod arrived and WoW is it nice! I had a new Shimano spinning reel just waiting on it when it got here. So I mounted the reel and sat back and waited on some decent weather. And waited, and waited...... and it seemed like the waiting was never going to end. Then the temps started to come up but so did the wind. The temps were hitting high 50's to low 60's and the wind was hitting high teens to mid 20's. The temps have continued to rise but the wind has not let up. And when I say it hasn't let up, I mean we've had daily winds of 20+ with gust up to 30ish. So last week we get a storm rolling through and it dumped 3.5 inches on us. Two days later the wind drops to less than 5 mph so I called a buddy and started packing up the boat. We get to the lake and the water is so muddy you grow corn in it.

With the microwave guides, the new rod cast really nice, unfortunately I can't tell you anything about what it's like with a fish on the other end. :cry: Other than the one fish my buddy caught, we just took a 5 hour boat ride. And now momma nature decided to dump another 3" of rain on us last night. So even with the forecast showing a slight break in the winds (9-17mph over the next 10 days) I don't anticipate much fishing will be done any time soon. This "spring", if you can call it that, has the makings to be one of the strangest on record for us. The temps have already hit 85° this year and now they're giving warnings that we may have a frost in the morning. This could only get stranger if it was in a fiction novel.

Hang in there JMichael. Mother nature will loosen her grip and hopefully by fall you will have all that gear worn out. Just be sure to post pics of all the big ones. Good luck and tight lines.
There are more fish taken out of a lake than ever were in it.
