And, one of the raffle prizes is a custom rod I just made for the meeting. There's pics of it on the rod building forum.

Dave Hansen gave a presentation on fishing for threshers for the club's upcoming thresher tournament. He was definitely very entertaining, very energetic and animated, and very knowledgeable! He had our attention! He raffled off a reel and rod combo for the kids and guess who won? Our very own Otto! That kid is a lucky kid! That started the raffle drawings for the evening and our table was winning several of the prizes!
Otto/Simon won 2 or 3 more raffle prizes, Tommy (I'm Off) won, Kevin won and donated back a prize since he already had that prize and then they drew him again so he won the same prize again! Stanley was at our table and won, the new guy at our table won, everyone around our table won once or twice and I was the only one left who hadn't won a prize at our table. Then I saw the big flying gaff prize donated by Mario (Thanks Mario!) and I said, I want to win that prize! And sure enough, I won it!!! Not that I needed a flying gaff for my kayak or anything, but it was fun to win!
Then Tommy asked if I wanted to trade for the Pro Gear Reel he had just won so I asked the audience and they all gave me the thumbs up for the trade, so I did! Both of us were happy! We had a lot of fun, this is a great club and their meetings are always informative and with good people!
Here's pics from the night, sorry they are crappy cell phone pics!

Tommy doesn't need that gaff for the baby Lizards he catches. He should have worked a trade with Simon....Team Lizardfish needs that badboy..."What is the MLPA anyway? They are the meanest people ever!"
