Happy Independence Day!

Like many of you, I am finishing up a few things and heading out of the office for a long Independence Day weekend!  The “4th of July” has always been one of my family’s favorite holidays, and this year will be no exception.  Yes, we LOVE setting off fireworks, but there will also be parades, feasting, maybe some time in the water cooling off, and in between all the family activities we usually put in a little time on the water drying off a fish or two.  Best of all, it is all done with family.  We have, and we will enjoy every second.  I know you will too.

My son with a big sandhills bass caught on a 4th of July weekend a few years back.

Be safe, spend as much time as you can with family and friends, spend some time on the water while you are at it, and most of all, remember what we are celebrating!

“Is this a great country or what?”

Yes, it is!


And don’t worry, we will be setting off “the good stuff”!


Happy Independence Day!
