Temporarily Retiring  (Read 4654 times)

Well after my comeback attempt at tournament fishing at Cedar Creek this past weekend, I have made a decision to temporarily retire from tournament fishing.

The defining factor was when I couldn't lift a 3 pound hand sledge high enuf to drive in a portable tree. Got to thinkin what if something happened and Brad really would need some help. I would be purty much worthless with my shoulder the way it is currently.

So, I be out and since Adolfo is gonna be fishin with his son at Lewisville, Big Country fishin team needed another partner. I am happy to say that Jeremy Gatlin will be Brad's new partner. Now he be a fairly decent sized young feller that ya'll gonna like. He most definitely fits the team name! hehehe

David ... I understand your concerns but hate to hear this. Who knows, maybe next year you can get back physically better than before. You ever need anything just holler, tourny or otherwise.

What the He!!??? I know we talked about it after the tourney. Sure will miss you on the water. Maybe during the pre-fish you could just tag-a-long with a team to just stay in the fish of things. Just make sure you are at the Gatherings and the weigh-ins. Still need your presence.  See you at Lewisville...........

Nice to finally meet you , hate to hear your retiring for a while, but we all understand how it is.I was sore as heck myself after this one from catching fish all day, but they were mostly eaters.

Sorry to hear that David. I know how much you enjoy fishing. See you at the next gathering.

Yeah Joe, I know you would pull out in a heartbeat is someone was in need and many others would too! But, I have seen several things happen in the past that took place real quick and there wasn't time to wait on somebody to come help. Accidents happen and sometime responses can't wait 5 or 10 minutes.

I love fishing but for now this is the correct thing to do. I will still fish some but not all day in a tournament. I'll still be hanging around, just not tournament fishing till this shoulder gets stronger.

DavidP,

You are an awesome individual and a true joy to be around.  Glad you are going to be still be around.  If NTTC is looking for a role model/spokesman, you are the prefect man for the job.  Thanks again for all of the encouragement and support that you have given me.  Get well for next season !!!

David,

I can't imagine a gathering of tourny without you being there.  Sorry to hear about your shoulder but I respect your judgement.  I can't wait to see you at Lewisville.  I'm praying for your shoulder.

Andrew
