'Twas the night before Christmas,
And I was still on the lake.

Not a care in the world,
I don't have to remember no date!

Oh the goin was slow,
cause the sign said "No Wake".

So I was a headed twards the ramp when what should appear?,
a great big ol stump!.. my graph show it quite clear.

Hadda think fast, all though I know it ain't right,
toss out that marker buoy whilst there's still some dang light!

My ol' MinnKota deployed with the greatest of ease,
And it darnwell should have cuz I just got it greased.

I flung out those jigs, and then let them fall,
the fish hit hard, not nary a stall.

Those were the biggest crappie I'd ever seen,
Some so large I feared my knife could not clean!

Then out of the night there came such a clatter,
I felt the boat shake, turned to look...
the Boss Lady was a climbin' the ladder!

Up on the rear deck she did appears,
All soakin wet from the swim... or was it the tears?

I don't remember much after that I recall,
Can't even remember drivin home, if at all.

Now, the lesson here is to fish way off shore,
further out ... way out.. EVEN MORE.

A good GPS will guide you all right,
Far, far away...Way outta sight.

Good fishin to all,
And to all a good GPS and
good night.
