    Mike – Just want to thank you for writing this great elf bait post for my blog. Looking forward to the next one. Any chance of a post about that musselcracker bait you like so much?
    Next time you are in my neck of the woods, give me a call. Looking forward to wetting a line with someone who knows fishing so well, and can show you some good fishing spots near MB (and return the hospitality you extended to Jen and me)

      You’re welcome Ray.

      Watch out for the Musselcracker Bait… and some more shad rigs too.

      I’m having a bit of a problem with net connectivity at the moment, so have a backlog of outstanding work, so these may take a while.

      And yes – thanks for the invite. Would be great to hook up so to speak.
