The drive back to Wetumpka from last weeks Crappiemasters Championship offered plenty of time to think about our great teams and Road Runner’s success. A question popped into my mind. How many fish do Road Runners catch?
Now bear with me here. Math was not my strongest subject in school so I have to break it down in pieces. First, is it reasonable to say you catch just five fish on a Road Runner before a stump or rock claims it? (I’m sure that’s a low average but let’s play it safe.) Now if we ship over a million Road Runners a year; wouldn’t that add up to FIVE MILLION FISH? I’ll just let that sink in and change subjects now.
This coming week brings the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association’s annual conference. This event is chocked full of seminars, fellowship and good times. Wes and Steve will meet me there in Punta Gorda to help us celebrate Tru-Turn’s 50th-Anniversary too.
The first cool fronts have passed now and many Crappie anglers have begun to dust off their gear. My flashbacks are the same every year after the first cold-snap of the season makes its way through the south. “I need some minners TJ!”
Growing up in my family’s tackle shop has been a blessing in so many ways. Yet there are numerous memories that are just ingrained into my very core. For example; the clank of an Old Pal bait bucket makes me stand at attention, ready to dip bait.
I’m sure there is a 12-step program for this condition but I think I’ll pass. 🙂
