    Well we just got back from the first trip of the year and it was an awesome one at that!!! We went to East Harbor State park near Marblehead Ohio for four days where my wife and daughter took in the sites while my buddy and I took his boat out and went Walleye fishing. The fishing was awesome (we limited out everyday) and the weather was even better. The only bad thing was this trip will be hard to top for the rest of the summer lol... Here are a few pics of the trip.

    Looks like you had a great trip Certified. Did you use some planer boards when fishing the walleye.

    Sounds like an awesome time! My family used to go up to Lakeside near Marblehead regularly when I was a kid. We even had a house there for a few years.

    I've been so busy with work, I haven't had time to even buy a fishing license yet. Sad, considering I live less than a mile from a state park with decent fishing! I did finally get the motorcycle out and go for a ride yesterday. It felt really good to get back out and ride for a bit. I really have to make sure I make some time to go play this summer before it is gone!
