Bass Fishing Buddy
I have met a bass fishing buddy here in Zapata and we have been out in his sleek Gambler rig several times now. Teri Reynolds and his wife Corinne hail from Southern Illinois around the Urbana area. Terry and I bounced around the same Bass Fishing circuits in our prime days but I don't think our paths ever crossed in a tournament. We have had fun discussing and reliving those days by telling each other story's as we are fishing. Teri is highly talented with pitching and flipping a jig and that is how we have been catching most of our fish. My elbows and "tennis elbow" have taken a toll on me so I am taking a few days off from fishing, although I must admit I went crappie fishing this morning and came in with 18 beauties.
Teri took the above picture of me and a nice 6 lb fish. It is nice to finally have someone capable of taking a picture and sharing his boat as my fishing alone in my little boat meant no pictures. I hope in future trips out on the lake with Teri that I can get some video of his rig and some pictures of him fighting a fish or two.
