  8. Last time fishing with my father before he unexpectedly passed. Glad we got to spend time fishing before he left. We caught this bass and I posted it before but ...more now I wanted to share it to hopefully inspire more family’s to fish together.

      Thank you all for the kind words. My goal is that people see this and hopefully force their father, son, or spouse to spend time fishing. This was Father’s Day 2 ...more weeks before he passed.
