Still a little light on Saturday afternoon and Sunday evening if anyone else can help out. Thank you very much to all who have committed time so far. It should be a great show, with lots of people.

Public volunteer list has been updated. Please let me know if I have you down wrong by posting a follow up on this thread.

We have some openings on Saturday and Sunday we could still use some help with. I have volunteered to do 3 seminars and other people will need breaks. I expect we will be real busy on Saturday in particular. Thanks!

Well, that is what Mike had and then I changed it because I am a literal nerd. I see Mike's intuition was better. I will change it back.

The Big Cheese, Dan Kimmel, and LGMOUTH, Don Watts hanging out at Dan's booth. The GreatLakesBass.com booth is located near the Hawg Trough where Dan has a seminar or two. Stop by and say hi and see if Dan falls into the fish tank during one of his seminars.

I did have a bunch of bites on my super secret bait rigs though!! Yes!

LGMOUTH looks pretty excited!!!

You also had a LOT of bites you never even knew you were getting.  Amazing how many fish picked up your various "secret" baits and you never knew a thing.  You KNOW this happens in the wild more than we like to admit.

I'd do that same seminar again Dan!  You got more bites than a pro I know of....

Dan please don't kill the mojo, and don't laugh, but my son has baseball practice Saturday night and I'm assistant coach ! Gotta be there. So I'm leaving out at 8 pm and crashing somewhere in grand rapids. I can help all Sunday with you and Wayne.

So put me in sunday from 10 am - close

Excited?! I know you're being facetious but I think he was in some sort of hypnotic trance from the sheer volume of information being jettisoned from the memory cells via the cake-hole of the new found best friend of certain government entities, double agent conservation director, and poobah of GreatLakesBass.com, Big Dan Kimmel.

Naw... he always looks that way when he isn't in the deer woods or on his boat... it's not just me.

I think I had about 60-70 bites in my 3 times up on the Hawg Trough! That really felt good! Especially the bass that didn't want to let go despite no hooks!!

I had a lot of fun at the Super Bass Clinic too. I cracked Wayne's composure a few times! We had a respectable group of people with some really good interaction for our panel of myself, Wayne Carpenter, Frank Keller and Mike McGrane.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and even some of you who helped additional times to cover for our loss of Mikesmiph to a new job (in Atlanta for now) and another member to illness.

I think we signed up a nice selection of new members including lots of beginners looking for information and/or just getting into bass fishing. I enjoyed talking to those of you who stopped by to say hello.

We did a great job getting information out, answering questions and providing resources. I already heard from Marcel Veenstra that he booked a guide trip from one of the visitors who talked to us about guide recommendations.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
