I met Jack and Jill Hunt at a tackle show in Oklahoma City and they decided to book a sand bass fishing trip. Their timing couldn't have been any better. We met up at Maize Landing and off we went. Got to the first stop, baited up and the first fish was coming into the boat. We put about 15 in the boat and it started to die off so we made a move up river. I nosed the boat into the bank and we started fishing out the back of the boat. 10 minutes had passed and all of a sudden lines started pulling and fish started coming over the boat. If you look at the pictures you will see Jill smiling and that smile never left . This woman had so much fun she made my job a total blast. At the end of the day, I cleaned 55 sand bass. Oh, I forgot to mention that Jill also sacked up 2 really nice spoonbill. It was a absolute fun day to be out with some great people.

We splashed the boat at 8 am Friday morning and we were off looking for sandies. It took a few stops to zero in on them but when we did it was some fast action. It took Bill a few misses to get the hang of it but he came on strong after that. Jim had been with me several times in past years and was a pro at it. The only thing when he caught a fish it seem to fine the anchor rope ALOT. Now back to Valerie. This young lady had never been in a boat before let alone fish out of one. Valerie got the hang of this fishing thing very quick. She probably out fished Bill and Jim and caught 2 spoonbill on top of that. Here are some pictures of Valerie with some real big smiles. Valerie, it was my pleasure to have you in the boat fishing along side of us. The 2 day total for this group was 130 sandbass and 3 spoonbill. In my heart there is nothing better then spending time with family and friends doing the things that you love to do best.
