 Bill DeArmond's Fishing Report

Despite a chilly start we had a great day of fishing.  Attendees were Jim Weible,  Walt Glover, Mike Lumma, Ken House, and Bill DeArmond with his son David.  All caught fish.  One went swimming, tipping his kayak, and the same one lost his stringer with 11 - 12 foot long crappie. But I can't remember who this is for the moment.   David DeArmond caught the most fish which included about 30 big crappie and 7 - 8 small bass.  Tom fried potatoes and onions along with the fish.  Thanks to Walt for bringing coleslaw and some of the best dill pickles I ever ate.  And Rosemary DeArmond sent two sugar free apple pies for dessert.  Despite the low turnout we had a fantastic day.  THANK YOU Tom for inviting us.

Pictured is Bill DeArmond's son David with his stringer.  He was able to keep his kayak upright and didn't lose his stringer thank goodness.
