    I won’t be there until Saturday morning sometime, as I have obligations Friday. I’ll call you when I get down there and we can meet up. The weigh in is always entertaining for folks. They can never believe how many rough fish we take out of the river at one of these gigs, and the size of the big ones

    Sounds good.

    I’ve never been to a weigh in like this before and since I’m staying at Everts, it couldn’t be more convenient!

    Let’s just say……….20 yard dumpster has been ordered for fish disposal. The tourney we did in June out of Alma we took 2.4 tons of fish
