Adam Murray...just turned 30, recently divorced and relocated to Dallas, TX. Best friend is my year and a half old black lab, Miss Dixie. Just got 901 CDX w/ 200 Opti that I rarely have time to use. Will pay commission to anyone that can figure out how I can make $20k a month and still fish every day!

My name is Bill, I'm 35 yrs old, and I have a 91 185 TF Nitro, with a 99 Merc 150XR6 on it, and my smaller boat, is a 14 ft Sylvan, with a 9.9 hp force. My wife Lisa fishes with me once in a while, but mostly enjoys being on the boat. I belong to a local bass club, with about 20 members. I fish pretty often, while I'm in school for various computer certifications. I have a Black Lab named Buster, a parrakeet named Perky, and I have a 55 gallon aquarium in my living room, with asstd tropical fish. I've been fishing since I've been 5 yrs old, and still love it.

I am Brian Feist age 37 married for 14 years with an eleven year old son and eight year old daughter. We have a fourteen year old springer spaniel that still sleeps in the chair next to my recliner (that's where she stays most of the time)



I work full time as a shift supervisor at a county 9-1-1 Center and part time as a dispatcher at a university police department. (That's why my e-mail address is "pitt.edu", I get free internet service)



I have a 1998 Pro Team 175 Anniversary Edition (I just had to have the green and gold stripes when I bought it new) with a 9.9 Merc 2 stroke. I am patiently waiting and hoping for Pennsylvania to let me use a bigger motor on the lakes that I normally fish so I can actually get my speedometer to move...

Tom Lutz, married to a very MAD Debbie (tired of me fishing all the time, don't believe me just check the fishing reports,ha), one 17 year old son Paul (backseatkid)...and very little time for pets. Will fish out of any boat with anyone (well, at least one time, got John F. twice though,ha!) but mostly just use my 2001 BassCat Sabre and try to get as many different people to go with me as possible (need all the fishing tips I can get, dontcha know).

Trying the tournament game now, fished my first real one Sunday and finished 28th (I think? waiting for the official results) out of 78 boats.

Oh, and when I absolutely have to, I "work" as a warehouse foreman/clerk/customer service supervisor for a major wallboard manufacturer in the Bay Area.

I'm Frank Daniel and I'm 48 years old today. Happy birthday to me.

For the last 11 years I've been the bookstore manager for a private school in Knoxville.

My wife's name is Pam and we've been married for 14 years.

We have 6 year old twins named Katie and Beecher, 2 dogs, 2 cats and a turtle.

My boat is a 1991 Nitro 180 which I purchased new. I used to fish a lot of tournaments but, that changed 6 years ago. Now I try to squeeze in a few hours of fishing here and there whenever I can find them. The kids are starting to get into fishing now so, maybe we'll all spend more time on the water next year. I hope.

God Bless you all.

Frank

I'm Mike Watson, 39 years old. I am an Art Director/Illustrator/Photographer for a monthly magazine. I live in a suburb of Chicago with my wife Gail, son Nick and grandson RJ. Trying to teach that grandson to fish early because my stepson is now in the dating more than fishing mode. I am the proud owner of a 2001 Pro-Deep V16 with a 60hp Merc. Unfortunately I am about to winterize it and put it away for the season. Sure didn't get out in it as much as I would have liked. Maybe next year will be better!!!!!Please, please, please, please!!!!

Both the boys are hard core fisherkids and get realy mad when I leave the house with the boat without them.

I'm 5'11' and 125 lbs soppying wet. Hey SCOTT, if you grab one of JOHN's legs, and I grab the other, we might wrestle him to the ground LOL



I try to fish as often as I can, which this year has probably averaged 1/week about 1/2 of those with the kids.



My fishing dream is to fish a local tournament with one of my kids as my partner!

Ken Neeley General Manager for Tracker at BPS in Auburn Hills, MI.

34 yrs old, 13 year old son, my pride and joy who loves to fish on the tank at BPS with Mac and Mini.

I'm an avid hunter, fishermen, and skydiver-although that's taken a back seat to the first two....so much to do, so little time!!!

Used a TV18 w/115hp this summer, I loved it and will buy it in the spring.

Have been known to enjoy a lime or two with Mac, and some serious shooting at Camp Neeley this year.

I don't have a whole lot of time to fish, I'm too busy keeping everyone else on the water, but I manage to get out once or twice a week in the summer.



Hey Mac, make sure you get with me when Pierre comes to town...would love to get out with you for a day.

I'm Dave Tully, 47. Live in Lathrop, MO with my bride (Anna) of 9 years. USAF retired (1995) after 23 yrs. My wife also retired USAF (1995) after serving in the Gulf War (F16 squadron). I have 2 grown sons (26) and (22) both who have long moved out on there own. Can you say yee-haw!

I am employed as a Information Systems Analyst for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

Having moved to Missouri two years ago, I am now a bass fisherman after many, many years of trout only. Okay, I'm a convert! Last year I bought a 2000 Nitro 901CDX 200EFI (my pride n' joy) after having a Tracker ProJet 18 for 5 years in Utah.

I read this site on a daily basis and found the group to be extremely helpful and friendly. Keep up the good work Rich!

On another note, I recently was in a 3 day Muskie Tournie on Pomme De Terre. I couldn't help but notice there wasn't a single Nitro to be found, even when we started out with another bass club from down south. Needless to say my buddy who owns a Charger, never let me forget it.

Happy Fishing!

Dave

Hi All! Mike Ladjack from New Jersey. 49 years young next Monday and have been actively fishing since I was around 12. Married with a 14 year old boy who loves to fish also. I've never gotten into tournament fishing, sounds like work and pressure and I'm out there fishing to escape all that. Maybe one day. Will fish anywhere for anything, just love being on the water with nature and good friends. Work for the phone company and take as many fishing vacations as I can.

Rich...with over 500 members this could be a long thread!!!! Nice way to see haw many are really very active readers. What a great crew of people on this board!!!!!!

Ken, I wouldn't know it if I heard it. Back when we went there (from Toledo) it was just "The Lake". All I remember was that it was near Rose City because that's where we went for supplies and to the movie sometimes. Rose City was not much more than an intersection. I remember the lake being kinda small with an island.

It's still basically an intersection but they have a new McDonald's and FIVE bars there now!!!!

Hey Ken, tell Ron that it is about time that he switched to Nitro from that Triton. I know Ron's name but I believe that we have never met. He was in the retirement mode when I started with the state. If you see him tell him to give me a jingle so I can find out when he is going to take me out on St. Clair and show me how to fish. LOLOL.

Work for a hotel management company here in Memphis as Corporate Director of Purchasing. Lived in Memphis for 3-1/2 years. Bought my first bass boat, 2001 PT175 in January and love it! I think I've only missed a handful of weekends since I got it, and not one problem other than a bad battery. This is my first full year of bass fishing so still have a lot to learn. I enjoy this site and really appreciate all the work that Rich puts into it and the great people that post. I normally check out the site at least twice a day and have picked up some valuable information along the way. Keep it up Rich!

Larry Jones,52 yrs old, married, and no kids left at home, thank goodness. Just moved to Plano Tx a couple of years ago from Iowa. Don't like the 100 degree plus heat, but 20 below with snow drifts was worse. Belong to a local bass club and love bass fishing. Especially in Tx. I own a Nitro 901 with a 200 Optimax, so when it gets too hot for the fish, I know just how to cool off; give it the gas. Wish I fished for a living/Real estate appraisor in spare time, but unfortunately it's the other way around.

Todd Calhoon, Husband to Sandi for the last 11 years(but we've been together for 15), Father to 12 yr old son Dusty. Let's see pets huh? Geez do I "have" to count em all? Well let's start with 1 dog, 1 ferret, 2 saltwater fish, 9 koi, 2 shubunkins, 2 pond comets(goldfish), 8 snails, 2 catfish,1 crawdad, and depending on the day of the week, anywhere from 5 to 100 guppys.

Been fishing since I was just a fry, all trout until I caught the "greenfish bug" about 3 yrs and $25k worth of boat, tackle and equip. ago. Still don't have enuff tackle, Someone wanna lend me thier credit card for a couple hours? I'm putting together a big BPS order as I type hoping my wife doesn't find the bill when it comes!!

Owner of a 2000 Triton Tr17dc w/Evinrude 115 Ficht.

I fish probably 30 days a year, but I'll be expanding that number considerably next year. As for you poor souls winterizing right now, Na Na Na Na!! I live where it freezes and occasionally snows, but just a 2-3 hr drive and I'm in the heart of California's prime bass country. As long as the pass is clear I can go fishin'!! If your ever out around Reno look me up, I'll hook ya up with some bass!!

Hey Brendan,...glad to see you posting and getting involved with fishing at the ripe ol' age of 15!! That's GREAT! Hope you can get a few of your buddies involved with fishing too, and enjoy it together for the rest of your lives! When I was your age, I use to go carp fishing on the Raisin River across the street from my parent's house. Man that was a riot!!,....those big ol buggle lipped sewer trout would inhale a glob of crawlers and peel off line like they were tarpon!!...I LOVED that!!.....At times there would be 3-4 of us all lined up on the bank and we'd sit for hours just catching one after another. They're so plentiful in that river that we'd rarely have to wait more than 15mins!!. Sure wish the bass fishing was that easy!! LOL......anyway,...just wanted to say HI and welcome to the board!! Glad to see a young man getting involved....very cool. Have a great weekend!!

Cass,...when you get to the WPBFA, look up Emily Shaffer,....she and her husband Larry are great friends of mine,....we have a blast together when we're at shows and stuff. She just finished 2nd overall in the Angler of the year points. They're great folks,...they live in TN, and we met at BPS a couple years ago in Springfield, MO. working an All Star promotion. She really knows the ins and outs of sponsorships and the fishing industry. She's helped me out with advice numerous times. She's a friend you want on your side! Good luck with your plans!!

Hey Gang,

I'm Marke Cicero, soon to be 30. Married to Jill for 8 years. We have 2 boys, Brandyn (7) and Devyn (4). We live in Amherst, NH. The whole family loves fishing from our 2001 TV-18 with a90HP Merc.



I never thought much about college until Brandyn was born. I've been going part time since he was 6 months old. I finished my Associate in Mech. Engineering last year and now going for my Bachelors in Technical Management. My goal is to have my Masters by the time he is out of high school...LOL



When I'm not fishing or doing homework, I can be found either on the golf course or in the woods hiking/hunting.
