It is a great, fun family event!

I’m not much of a fisherman. About the only thing I have ever had any luck catching is what my brother-in-law called a “blind eel.” Commonly referred to by the general population as a stick. I have occasionally landed a catfish but who hasn’t, really? Put something really gross on a hook and stick it in the water and a catfish will usually go for it. Then there’s the whole getting them off the hook thing which I won’t get into.

Well, the guys that will be here in just a little over a week have forgotten more about fishing than I’ll ever know. Even with my lack of knowledge of the finer points of fishing, I had a blast at the weigh-ins here in Wetumpka last year. These guys are truly like rock stars but incredibly friendly and approachable. I have heard story after story about how great they were with the kids and all their other fans by posing for pictures and signing autographs until everybody had a chance to get one. Great guys by all accounts.

So, whether you’re an avid angler or, like me, a specialist in hooking vision impaired water dwelling creatures, you’ll find something to enjoy. I promise.
