Dad was the one that started me fishing since I was old enough to walk. Not to brag, but I have caught thousands or fish, if not more, in my 59 years. I've been told I am a very good fisherman. I owe all of that to Dad. One of my Dad's friends, Richard Ondracek, talked Dad into taking me along with them to Minnesota--from then on I was hooked (pardon the pun). When I found out Dad had dies all I wanted to do was to catch one more for Dad. The weather has been hot one day, cold the next--not very good for fishing. I went fishing on the 12th. Guys were leaving. They had been fishing all day and said "good luck, we haven't caught any fish". I tied on a lure I haven't used in years and I caught one within 15 minutes. Nowhere near my largest, nowhere near the toughest fighting, but it was the fish that made me the proudest. Dad helped me catch the fish. This fish was for Dad. Thanks, Dad!
