Hi Folks,

I am sad to report to you that Karl Ridder has passed away. Anyone who has ever fished a tournament knew Karl. I spoke with his wife Linda today. Karl was an avid crappie fisherman and loved setting up the kids events at St. Marys.

Please keep Linda and the family in your prayers.

There will never be another one like Karl. Any one that knows him can tell you that he can talk fishing for ever. And that what he's doing now.
Linda and the family are in our thoughts and prayers.

I too want to pass on my condolenses to his family. Though I did not know him I know what a loss of a mentor by the recent death of my father-in-law. His family will be in our thoughts.
