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
* convoy lead
* southern dimple-fish recovery boy
* seine boy
* baby snapping turtle bite/pressure test boy (he didn't really VOLUNTEER for that, tho, AFAIK)
* 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 split?)

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.
