I just wanted to thank everyone that took the time to read the stories in the contest and then vote for one of them. I am ever grateful and surprised that I actually won the fishfinder, for I needed one. Heartfelt thanks to Ed and his great site, to HB for the fishfinder, and most of all to you who voted for my story. It was a close race and the other stories were just as great. God bless and thanks again.

:D:D:cool:cool::):):);):D:D:D and that ain't no bull.

As one of your competitors and author of "Crappies & Bees" I congratulate you on you win. Thanks for your compliments and being humble enough to recognize the rest of us in the contest.
This is the first contest I've entered and it wont be the last.
Good story and when that new locator puts you on that huge school of slab crappie, call me.

Thanks again on the "high fives", I still can't believe I won. Crappie Pop that goes for me too, my first writing contest. Yours sure had me laughing. In my opinion I think "The Foundation" by another La. boy, K-man, was most heart touching story and would have gotten my vote. The Gift of Giving by Nick Shafer who was neck and neck with me was a close second. I personally witnessed how fishing could change directions in people's lives. Thanks for all support.
