Re: "Bucket Boy" (was: NFC: Weekend fishin trip......)
In all fairness and being from the Great Voting State of
Florida, I must place a protest (who isn't these days). Yes he was all
that was stated, but he did lacked on one thing. Remember when I was bucket boy
going into the deep swamp, I came a running (if you could even call it that with
the mud, holes and weeds) when someone needed the bucket. We had to
come to his side of the river, wading, tripping, or swimming, yes he
was a fair bucket boy and everything said about him.
I lost about six fish on the trip home and over night, not bad
odds. I got a few that I am treating for one thing or another. The
So. Amer. catfish (maybe, the vote on the pictures haven't be recounted yet) are
showing good color and swimming around. My old Flag fish is in shock, with
all the babies swimming around his tank. I should have warned him what it
is like to be a grandfather figure.
Well i have stop here so I can leave for school tonight.
Now you all got three hours to bet on me while I gone. WITH GREAT SMILES,
old baldy ~(:>)) JiM C.

Lest Chris "The ERP bucket boy" Guppenberger create a wrong
impression, I would like to point out he served equally well on our Titusville
(FL) ERP mission as:
* Locations coordinator
* cast-net boy
* southern dimple-fish recovery boy
* seine boy
snapping turtle bite/pressure test boy (he didn't really VOLUNTEER for that,
* muck boy
* "get out of the way of that airboat, it's
coming this way" boy
* rain boy
* inseine boy
* more rain boy
and I'm sure other critical roles I've overlooked.
(In fairness we
have to downgrade his performance slightly for having re-grouped us back in
the channel to watch (and listen) to the airboat from the rear after it passed
us, thus perfectly setting us when its traveling partner, a second airboat,
hove around the bend ... can you spell Celebrity Airboat Bowling and seven-ten
But back to the Bucket-Boy thing, I think I speak for
everyone on this little expedition when I say that Chris clearly demonstrated
Bucket-Boy technique and skills that would rank in the top three or four
practitioners in the field on this occasion.

- if you bring home a "silverside", and
it doesn't die, does that mean it wasn't
a silverside in
the first place?
