I had the pleasure of taking a great friend of mine out Tim and his 2 brothers Robert and Willie was not the best day ever but we did manage to catch 26 and they took 16 nice keepers home with them .

The reason i called it a awesome trip was because Tim's brother has terminal cancer and is not doing well and one of his wishes was to go crappie fishing like i said we did ok but he just wanted to be on the water with his 2 brothers .

I lost my dad to cancer April 2010 so this was a real special day to me so my job was to make sure we caught fish and for him to have a great day . I think i did that we had fun laughed allot , They told stories of each other growing up then we laughed again ,, so in all it was a great day for them and me brought back allot of memories of my dad and the times me and him fished , J634696347063471ust thought you guys would want to hear the story.

When we loaded the boat up Tim tried to give me money for the trip i told him his money was no good to me . Trips like that are what its all about

That's a great thing you did. Just goes to show there are better reasons other than the money sometimes.;) Congrats on a special day for everyone.:p

As fortunate as we are we sometimes take for granted the things that we do all the time. we all need to remember that part of our job in life is to give back to others. Getting these guys back together on the water, doing what they love to do and spending time with one another is a priceless thing. I commend you for what you did. They will surely remember that day with a smile for the rest of their days. Simply put...Well Done.

That's a nice trip for the 3 brothers to share together. I know Tim, Robert and Willie will share that trip many of times together and in their thoughts. You gave them time together that will never be replaced.

My hats off to you crappieman1961, well done.;)

That's a great display of giving right there, better to give than recieve. You set the pattern now we all need to follow it.
