    We did a little recon in Maine, with Jerry and Pat.

    Just got back from our Maine trip yesterday. Spent 9 days in Maine and fished for 7 straight days of that time. We did go in the Maine Special Olympics Tx and did not do that well. Only caught 4 bass for a total of 8-9 lbs. Did not weigh in along with a lot of other anglers. Out of 82 boats, I think only 29 weighed in. After fishing Cobbee for 2 days and 17 Bass, all on jerk baits, went to another small pond and caught 43 the biggest being 3.12 lm., all caught on shallow running crank baits. We moved on to Castle Island at the recommendation of Ed and Butch who have spent a lot of time there after the rally. Day 1, 4 hours, 16 sm, Day 2, 7 hours, pouring rain all day, 34 sm, and Day 3, 8 hours, 64 sm, and a couple rainbows, in 20 + mph winds—all on jerk baits. One of the rainbows that I caught felt like a huge fish, and I told Jane to get the net. It was hooked by the tail. It made me feel good considering Jane got 42 out of the 64. (I think most of you guys have heard that story before.) We had a great time at Castle Island. We happened to be lucky enough to have fantastic fishing, fabulous food, and were able to spend time with the nicest people and excellent hosts. John, Rhonda, and their girls who own Castle Island do everything in their power to make you enjoy your stay there. Go to Castle Island again, you bet. We give it a 10. Thursday morning we headed north to Skowhegan, one of our favorite ponds, water 10 degrees colder than last year, and we only caught 19 lm/sm. In our 7 days of fishing we caught 193 bass. Not bad for two old folks. When we got home, we were exhausted.
    Jerry and Pat mentioned that the fishing could be tough on Cobbee during the rally, but I think it should be good. Can't wait to see all you guys and gals. Seen you soon!!!

    You guys are being too tough on yourselves heck I thought they shocked the lake and took all the fish out before we got there but hey raised a ton of money.
