A friend of a very close friend has pancreatic cancer. It is inoperable. He feels good enough to fish and is going to be down at White Oak next week. He and Robert are both antique lure collectors. Big time collectors. Robert invited him to come for a few days.


He wants to fish a few hours each day with some of his old lures. He asked Robert, "Can that goofy kid from TN come fish with me?" I met him once, a year or so ago and we did a lot of laughing. I guess he is maybe 75.

I leave Monday morning. My goal is to have him on 30 bass over five with his antique lures. I hope to do it in three hours.

Please, one time,let the weather cooperate.

Man, I've got a few friends that have succumbed rather quickly to pancreatic cancer. I think Patrick Swayze is beating it's azz, but it's a tough road. I'll give up all the fish on my next trip for the gentleman to catch them. Good luck.

Very BW. I hope the weather cooperates and he catches more than the boat can hold.

Remember the big dead tree with a ribbon on it... there's a hump nearby. I have been TOLD it's a really good spot.

Have fun... do good.

P.S. Can I have your "old" 2008 truck?
