Second Annual Maynard Trip Closes GGO with a bang!
Sep. 18, 2009
The lures and baits were chucked, the wigs were worn, the nicknames fired out at will. Chirping was heard from South Shore to Slammers, no birds to be seen however. Friendly jabs exchanged in an attempt to rattle the captains and first mates of the next boat over. Competition was tight, until the final evening their trophy was handed out. Here are the teams' final standings: 1st place: "The Dirty Hooks" 2nd place: "The Spooners" & "Hoe Backs" 4th place: Well, you know who you are. 5th place: "The Dutch Rudders" (If you don't know, don't ask)
The trophy was given to the "Dirty Hooks" yet, not to be outdone, "The Spooners' " Léo Maynard, boated a massive 41" Northern Pike (seen above) on Pit's Point. Congrats on the victory and the bragging rights!
To celebrate, Pit & Julie accompanied by Pat, David, Marcel and Jesse went over to GGO on the last evening to chew the fat and spin some yarn. Many laughs and some questionable humor was shared around a beautiful starlit campfire evening.
Thanks guys for sharing the Aikens Experience, best of luck during this fall's deer season. We're very pleased to have expanded the Aikens Family by adding such fine characters as yourselves.
