Okay folks…are ya sittin’ down in your favorite easy chair?? This is where it gets good! Sam and DUB took the Shelley Rambo boat #2 today and they had a phenomenal day! 19 fish in all with a couple of position changes! Local girl (who was sort of celebrating a little bachelorette fun today–by the way, she’s marrying one of our bait boys from yester-year–Jonny Hinton!) Linnaea Kibbler caught a 24″H!! But everyone else on this boat caught three fish each…well, except for Shelley but we’ll get to her in a minute! So Mel Carlson caught three–34 3/4″W, 24 1/2″H, 31″W; Karen Crosby caught three–32″W, 28″W, 34″W; Cindy Clancy caught three–33 1/2″W, 32″H, 33″W! By the way, are you all paying attention to the SIZE of these FISH? Cuz we’re not done yet…and you best be sittin’ down for this one! Carole Clements…who by the way, back on February 20th, 2002, caught a 39″W fish that could not be counted as it was NOT a tournament day–it was her “just for fun” day as they’d chosen to go a second day. Retired River Adventures guide Romine told me that everyone was pretty bummed for her that she couldn’t win a prize for that big fish anyway–just bragging rights. So today…she caught three fish…a 23″H, a 30″W …and…are you sitting down yet? A 38 1/2″W!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So…I think we now have a new BIG FISH LEADER!! Congratulations Carole!!!! And guess what? THIS ONE COUNTS!! 🙂
And finally, on this boat, Mrs. Shelley Rambo…who has been coming for quite a few years on WWB!! She and her amazing husband donate a prize EVERY YEAR to this tournament–we REALLY APPRECIATE Steve Rambo Jewelers and we want you to shop there too!! So go and check them out in Boise at 902 Main Street, Downtown!! Well, she finally caught some fish today. SHE CAUGHT 6 FISH!! She’s now our new 2ND PLACE MOST FISH gal!! But check out the sizes of these fish! Shelley’s stats: 33″W, 34″W, 33″W, 28″H, 30 1/2″H, 33″W! Now that is some fine fishing! Congratulations Girl!!
