Bull was a great man. I always had fun fishing at Bay Springs/Pickwick/Sardis against him in tournaments. He could pull a prank on someone better than anyone. His laugh was contagious.
Rest in Peace my Friend.

Bull will be missed by all but that smile , that sense of humor, and always willing to help someone in need will always be remembered. My prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
