vince and i have decided to step it up a notch in the tournament fishing. next month we are starting to fish the xtreme bass tour. we will fish ten tournaments starting march 11th and going till August 18th. if we fish all ten tourneys that will qualify us for the championship at the end of the year. vince is out right now trying to scrounge up a couple of sponsors. if anyone can do it, its vince and if anyone out there would like to sponsor an "xtreme fisherman" just let me know.

so we decided to pick the tornado weekend to go camping. of course if we would have known we wouldnt of gone. i guess if anyone had known there wouldnt be 19 dead floridians because of the tornado. it passed about 20 miles from where we were camping. needless to say we felt some of its effects. we are all very thankful that no one got hurt since we had 5 adults and 6 children ranging from age 9 weeks to 5 years old. friday night we really didnt know what was going on. we just thought it was the cold front moving in a day early and were pissed that the fishing was gonna stink the next day. it wasnt till the next morning when we turned on our cell phone and noticed all the messages we had received from concerned family and friends. kinda puts things in perspective when you realize that while you were getting mad because fishing was gonna be bad and your kids were getting wet in their tents that people were dying a few miles away.
all-in-all we had a pretty good time. fishing wasnt all that bad. we had plenty of trout and reds to eat at night around the campfire. vince had purchased a huge tarp (just incase of rain, hehe) that kept us dry when it was really pouring. the kids seemed to have a fun time and no one was injured or anything. cant wait for the next trip!!! if you wanna see some more pics you can go to vinces blog and check em out.
