Breakfast in Springville was well attended. Good choice DuBob. Got on down the road by 7ish and hit Painted Rocks about 8ish. 6 degrees but no W. There were already quite a few vehicles in the lots and a few folks out on the ice.
TubeBabe and I got rides from good samaritans. Thanks Geezer for the snowmobile ride. I'm glad we went back so that I could retie the knot on my sled that you messed up the first time.
Cruised into where Bassrods, Majja and Wasatch801 were fishing. They had little action prior to our showing up. A brief flurry after and then zip. I caught one fish before packing up to head in to help with festivities. TubeBabe caught our first perch and one more before she came in to join us. Not our best perch trip.
A cold wind came up about 9:30. Was looking grim but it calmed down and turned into a nice warm day.
I filleted about 50-60 perch that other members brought to the party. Pikeman and his bride...along with the other helpers...turned out some great perch, potatoes and other eats. If anybody didn't get enough to eat, it was on them.
Biggest perch was caught by a lady tangler...see photo. Her porky perch was just over 13". You rock ma'am. Shows those guys who's boss. MeMeMe...another lady BFTer also contributed a few nice perch in the 12 inch range.
One young man in the company of BFT member "troll" caught a pretty rainbow just after we arrived...on his new Sportsman rod and reel combo. He was a happy camper.
We finished up by awarding prizes and drawings. Almost everybody who put a ticket in the hat won something.
Thanks Mr. & Mrs. Pikeman for a great gathering.
Here are the few pictures I managed to shoot between running around and filleting fish.
