Joshimoto in Alabama
« on: November 09, 2007, 12:27:25 PM »

Just wanted to let everyone know that Josh is tied for 17th place after day one of the Stren Series Championship.  He had 4 fish for 5 lbs yesterday.

I talked to him a few days earlier and he said the fishing was extremely tough.  Due to drought, the water has dropped so low that the saltwater from the ocean is backing way up into the river.  Plus, he said there are literally no weeds available. 

Keep your fingers crossed for today.  He is a great fisherman, i have a feeling he will be moving up a few spots today!

Thanks Jaguar for keeping us posted!  Josh has got to be thrilled.  I wish Duane could have been up there too that would have been really cool. 

Anyway we are watching to see how he does,  actually I had forgot that it was this weekend,  that must be why he didn't call me back when I left him a message that we were going to be in town last weekend.

Keeping our fingers crossed ;D

Word is that Duane's boat broak down on day 1 and he didnt make it back in time so he was DQ'd for the day.

If Josh catches zero fish today he still walks home with 6,000.00.  What a great showing!  But wait!  He's going to catch some fish today!  He's paired up with a pretty decent pro!  Hold on to your hats.  This could vault Josh up and get his career really moving!!!!!  I see sponsorship $$$$ in his future.

Josh thought he had about 7 lbs yesterday but he estimated high.  He had 5-8.  Watching the weigh ins was scary because he got bumped from 3rd to 6th with only about 70 co's weighed in.  I was biting my nails but it ended up alot of co's that were in striking range of Josh zero'd!!    It doesnt matter though.  Weights are wiped for the final day right?  Here's to hoping Josh has his best day ever!!

P.S.  He better win some money.  We are out of pouring supplies.  Slacker!

Nice going Josh!

Here's a photo from the FLW website (for those of you who don't know Josh, he's the second from the left):

I wish i could have posted more but i did not have access to a computer all weekend.

It was funny talking to Josh througout this thing tho.  I would call him and he would already be weighed in but there were still a lot of co anglers left to weigh.  You could hear the anxiety in his voice.  But then, 30 minutes later, he would call me back all cool and collected letting me know he was fishing the next day. 

Huge congrats to you bro.  You just moved into #3 on my hero list behind Chuck Norris and Babe Winkleman.

I'm not sure what that means but I think that picture is of Clint Howard, Ron's brother.

Congrats Joshimoto, that is a great showing.

Check out the home page - www.glbass.com - do you think Josh will like it?? (Probably not as much as the $11,000 or $16,000 bucks and the FLW Tour Championship... but we do what we can ;D)

Holy busy! It's just not fair to have to come back to work after a trip like that.

Thanks for everybodies support.
So the actual check was for $15,565. FLW  pro-rated...co-rated the check since only 187 showed up.

I'm trying to find a laptop to take home so I can get a story out.

I will just tell you all this. It was the most outstanding thing I've ever witnessed and got to be a part of.

I wished I was able to wear my own clothing though. I had the GLB. com logo embroidered on my shirt since the beginning of the season
I so wish I could have been able to push that on TV.

I'm hoping that I'll get to put the entire season down in text, getting the whole story leading up to the Cup.
