The ninth Annual â€śHooked On Fishingâ€ť Kids Tournament will be from 7 a.m. to noon Saturday at Long Lake Resort. There will be a hotdog bash after the tournament for all who attend.
Jacques and I will try our luck again this year, and I have a secret bait that will surely catch a few big ones! I'm always looking for new lures that some how have magical powers to fill the boat.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and veterans.
Have a great weekend.

It looks like I may actually get to fish for one morning this summer. Chuck Restine and I are looking at going to Lake Tenkiller on Friday morning to catch a few smallmouth before heading to Pittsburg for a couple of baseball games.
Word is that they have been hammering the smallmouth, and there is nothing I like better than catching a few of those bronze beauties. With my schedule, I may not get to fish again till July, so I hope we get to go.
