|Mustangs Defeated 3-1 By Louisville Southern In Friday Night LIT Clash
Remaining Games Washed Out - LStangs Tourney In Owensboro Pushed To Sunday
They say that all good things must come to an end, and my run at
Pickwick each spring is certainly a most enjoyable "good thing."
I fished 19 straight days for an average of about 9 hours per day, as
evidenced by my sun and wind burn, and even though the "catching" was
tough this spring, the "fishing" was excellent. We had great weather,
stable water levels, and manageable winds. Only one time did we get
pelted by rain.
Week one was spent with Bill and Chris Hagedorn who arrived exactly the
same time as I did. After throwing our gear in our room, we wasted no
time getting out there. It was probably that April 10th afternoon that we
discovered that we'd have to work a lot harder for them than in the three
previous springs, when catching 25 to 50 fish each time the boat left the
dock was the norm. This year on our best day we probably topped out at
about 15. However, what we lost out on in numbers we made up for in
size. We caught Canadian class smallmouth bass up to 20 inches with
regularity, and the largemouth that we caught all qualified as "keepers."
My 5.1oz largemouth was the trip's big fish, outside of the rough fish who
dwarfed our bass catches. This was by far our best "big fish" year.
Former Brossart clasmate ('65) Tom Holtz joined me for week two on April 17th and his first day out was
pretty incredible in that we boated five hefty largemouth and girthy smallies. Being his first week ever at
Pickwick, I would have liked for Tom to have a better week, but fishing is fishing, and even though we
worked hard at it, we weren't rewarded with large numbers of fish caught. There was one memorable
morning with Tom when I had four consecutive bass jump and throw my plug in succession, followed by Tom
catching and landing four in a row - all within about a 30 minute span.
Week three, which just concluded Thursday, I fished solo. Not many guys would favor big water fishing by
themselves, but I really enjoy it and can relax without the pressure of putting my partners on fish. I caught a
bunch trolling on Wednesday, but since Thursday was my last day, I spent it casting - my favorite method.
I've booked three weeks for next spring, and if things go well, plan on being back in Pickwick, Tennessee
The final new picture of the trip is of this 16 inch crappie which hit a 4 inch Yammamoto grub.
I will be right back at it on May 11th when Bill and I head north to Spanish, Ontario, Canada for four weeks
of trophy bass, pike, walleye and muskie fishing. We will be joined on week four by my brother Mark,
nephew Andy and his daughter Katelyn. Tom Holtz will be in Minnesota in June with his group.

|Bravo! To The St. Mary 8th Graders On Their Production of Lion King, Jr.
Coming back a couple of days early from my Pickwick fishing trip for the Myron Born funeral allowed me to
take in the St. Mary 8th Graders production of Lion King, Jr., in the Munninghoff Family Theater Friday night.
To say this was a well-done production would be an understatement. The kids did an enthusiastically good
job, and some of the choreography was professional in nature. The cast contained six dancers who have
trained for years at the Manyet School of Dance and it showed. I'm glad that they had their opportunity to
share their skills on the grand stage.
I may have been the only person in the house to have never seen the movie - Lion King, so the plot was new to
me. Brian Paulin was a convincing king, Trey Spoonamore a conniving villian, and Jacob Wolfe was perfectly
cast as the young king. The young lady who played the warthog stole the show and had fun doing it.
My buddy Blayke Kremer played a loony bird. I know how long and hard the cast worked on this, as back in
basketball season Blayke would sit in on the end of our practices following his play practice.
Brossart alums Ana Dischar and Stephanie Ritter direct the show and do an excellent job.
I hope to see many of these same performers continue their theatrical careers on the Munninghoff stage for
the next four years.
The show's two night run concluded Saturday night.
