I invited ric 1 ric and farrier frank up for some pyramid fishing and A BBQ at my place on on Sunday.
We had a slow day on Monday with frank and ric aboard,only five fish to the boat. Ill blame ric for being
The bannana on the boat! We fished up north after a couple of hours of of 1 to two footers coming over my back splash, I notice we have water above the floor boards and close to the perko switch! WTF!
I decide to go back into the dock and put the boat
on the trailer, to remove the water, my bilge pumps have been acting up. I know drrrr. We get the boat on the trailer and start draining the water when ric points out that the rubber that my motor controls,gps,ect run thru is wide open! About a three inch hole on my back splash. That could be were my water is coming in at. Dugh, ric went home around two. Frank and I
Fished the pellican area for another couple hours for nada.
The next day was completely different, we headed north and and started getting bit right away
Frank with a frog lyman and me with my favorite watermellon apex. Frank could not keep the fish on his lyman, he must have lost at least ten fish! I kept telling him it was not the lure but the guy on the end of the rod! Frank then switched over to the frog apex and never missed a fish the rest of the day. Frank ended up kicking my butt 18 to 12. I did catch the biggest both days though.
I did catch one nice one with a 6 inch bait fish hanging out his mouth and still hit

my six inch
Watermellon apex. We got a 11 pounder last year that had an even bigger cui and had a grub in his
Mouth as well. When these cutts are on the feed they feed!!! *Thanks for coming up guys it was fun!

Here are some pics of the bbq, frank brought some oysters to start it off

You guys don't understand Frank really loved that Duck [smiley=yikes.gif]
Thanks Tim for the trip not many fish that day but I never quit laughing. The Bannana in your boat huh! [smiley=bananadevil.gif] [smiley=bananasplits.gif] I have noticed that when the two of us fish together we don't catch much, except a buss. [smiley=cheers.gif](not that thats a bad thing) Even on my boat so maybe you are my bad luck charm!! I don't mean that we will knock them dead next time.
Thanks for dinner and the pink tequilla that was a new one on me. Thanks Kelli for letting me sleep inside on a bed, even after I bad mouthed your tequilla. I always have fun with you guys.
I hope you didn't have to burn that duck after Frank was done with it. [smiley=rotfl2.gif] [smiley=rotfl2.gif]

The duck. Let me tell you guys about the duck.

This was my 8th trip to Pyramid this season and 7 of those trips I fished with Mongo, and every time I came over the hill Mongo invited me to stay at his house. I never took him up on the offer. I don't like putting folks out. Besides, after a day on the water I like sitting at the bar at Crosby's in the evening, drinking whiskey and talking bull with the guys. When I'm done drinking whiskey and done telling all the lies I can think of and all the back-slapping I can handle I head over to my room, feed the dog, open a can of beans and fall asleep in my long johns.

Mongo offered me a cold trailer to sleep in or a heated room. I took the room. His three-year-old granddaughters room. A room with fairy's and princesses and pink and even a big figure of Cinderella over the bed. The closet was full of cute little dresses only a little girl would love. And the floor held boxes of stuffed animals and dolls..... and the duck... *the duck Mongo thought would be cute if he took a picture of me holding.

I went along with the joke and went to sleep. No big deal - when the lights are out the colors don't matter. At least thatís what I thought. But at two in the morning I woke with a start. I was dreaming of fishing the next day. But instead of fishing with Mongo I was fishing with Cinderella and I knew the next knock on the door was going to be the vice squad and I was gonna have a hard time explaining... especially when they found me sleeping with a duck. [smiley=smiley_crazy.gif]

I better get back to fishing before this thread gets moved to an undisclosed location. [smiley=winkfs.gif]

The fishing was great. The best so far this season. Except for Monday. Monday we came close to sinking due to an oversight of a real BIG hole in the splash-well. Monday was also the worst fish catching day this season and the only thing Mongo and I could reason the problem was was that Banana Boy (ric1ric) was fishing with us. I caught 3 for the day on a black/frog Lyman.... Mongo and Rick caught 1 each. It was so bad I told Mongo I would need to be driving home by 2 Tuesday.

Tuesday the tide turned. Banana Boy was gone and the fish started hitting right from the get-go. I stayed with the black/frog Lyman and lost 7 fish in a row. I couldn't figure it out. And while that was happening Mongo caught three and went ahead of me for the two day trip. I switched to the black/frog Apex and lost another two. I was pulling my hair out at that point and Mongo went ahead of me another two fish on his watermelon Apex. I almost switched lures but thought better of it. Instead, I switched out the hooks on the Apex from the big hooks I always do good with at Pyramid and put on a smaller hook. It paid off. I ended up with 18 fish to Mongo's 12. [smiley=bananachaga.gif]

Funny thing, about one o'clock, when the fishing was really going strong, Mongo wanted to know if I wanted to go back to the dock and head home - Like that was really going to happen. ::)

This was by far the best trip to Pyramid for me this season. Mongo and Kelli are down home folks with a home that really feels like a home... and I miss the duck. [smiley=homersimpson.gif]

you have never ever seen me with a banana on a boat. Call me a jinx or just plain bad luck, but banana boy. >:( I wasn't even going to tell about your cinderella dream, but keep this banana boy stuff up and I'll tell about the real cinderella story. ;D

... Frank, its ok ..bring your new friend.

You guys can joke all you want but don't mess with the duck. That duck is my new lucky charm. Mongo and I have been hard at it all winter... it's been like the Wimbledon of fishing. Last time he sent me home with my tail between my legs. This time I kicked his butt. And I know it was because I met the duck.

P.S. Mongo: Don't forget to bring the duck to the Fest. The last trip I have for Pyramid this season is the Fest and I need the duck.[smiley=wileecoyote.gif]

Lets see, you are on a boat with Mongo, a guy cramming banana's down his throat and another guy in love with a pink duck.
I am quite certain that wiskey would help on that trip A LOT ;D ;D

I don't know how many times I've been asked "How much is a Duckworth? *Now I can point to this thread and clearly say "It's Priceless"

Hey Freon,

I heard that they're going to start selling them at the store in Sutcliff. Better hurry and get one before they're all gone. ;D ;D ;D

Naw, I will leave them there for you and Frank, I know how you two get when others show up with the same things that you have, personally, I think there is somethihng fowl about this whole thread ;)

A pity that duck wasnt purple, it would have matched Franks clogs ;D
