You bet! I had even more fun yesterday when I showed off the
pics to all my colleagues who fish. (of course, they have to
take out pictures of their pike and show them off. One of
them had caught an 16-pound 35" some time ago.)

I was throwing the lure out and reeling it in, never expected
to actually _catch_ anything, now did I? I wouldn't have known
what to do if Ty and Ray hadn't talked me through the reeling
in and landing that pike. Considering that my biggest fish
before that day had been an 8" bullhead, this little baby
was quite a surprise. Of course, Ray Wolff knew just the right
spots to fish ... we'd have been skunked otherwise.

Josh: We had a lot of fun. We were mostly out and about to
enjoy the company and the day (it was bright and sunny in the 70s).
The fishing was the icing on the cake.

Other than the fish that Ty mentioned, we saw Golden Shiners,
Blacknose shiners, Pumpkinseeds, Green Sunfish, Bluegills,
mudminnows, lots of frogs, etc.
