Ron Schara Scores...

It's not every day I get to spend an afternoon in the boat with a Hall of Fame angler.  Today I was lucky enough to do just that.  It's an honor and quite the humbling experience to be in a position to do such a thing.  Sure I work for the company that Ron Schara started many moons ago, and we work along side each other day in and day out, but to get away from the hustle and bustle of the office life and spend time in "our element," was pretty special.  No cameras, no motive; just good clean fishing for the simple fun of it all.

During our drift, we shared stories and laughs about fishy topics.  I had a couple, but mostly I just listened to the man that's been there and done that.  We bounced ideas and thoughts off each other, and I think you could say that each one of us learned a thing or two while we floated across the water.  I learned that my favorite all-time fishing pole does have a life span, and it ended on March 10, 2010.  I now know a few "secret spots" that produced jumbo walleyes many years ago.  I learned a lot of things from Ron on our short trip on the water, but one thing will definitely stand out from them all.  It is important to catch the first fish and the biggest fish.  I did neither, and now I will have to live with it for a very long time...

Thank you for the memorable trip Ron.  Congrats on the first fish and the biggest fish, but please note, I won't let it happen again!
