Deep fried walleye "tailgate party" before the meeting thanks to the great guys from Southwest Walleye! That alone was worth the trip. Then Bill Warman, big bass expert on Canyon Lake, gave it all up in a terrific presentation on how to catch bass and walleye on Canyon. Yep, when I say he gave it all to us I mean it. He gave us the baits, the rigs, the times, the conditions, the depths and then he handed out a map of Canyon with his big bass spots! And he gave out audio CDs from a teleconference he did for a bass magazine. I'm not even 1/4 of the way through listening to that but it has even more of his tips and techniques in detail. (Josh, you've got to listen to that CD a dozen times!) And then he handed out free samples of a new system to attach hooks or lures to our fishing line. Called Tie-Not connectors, they allow you to attach a lure or hook using only an overhand knot. They look good to me for night fishing (which I don't do much of) and good for old dudes like me who can't see their line to tie the knot. Pretty cool gizmos. Bill invited one of his sponsors to attend. Ken Kross, inventor and President of Kick n' Bass was there. (Warman uses only KNB Garlic on every one of his baits) Ken Kross is good people and I've met him a couple times before. He jumped right into the meeting and was an active contributor. Thanks for attending Ken, I hope you’ll be at future meetings too. At the end of the meeting Ken gave out free bottles of KNB to anyone who wanted one. I chose Garlic of course!

Oh yeah, there were three(?) reps at the meeting from Fishing Has No Boundaries to thank Bill Warman for his efforts supporting FHNB. Bill got a t-shirt and rounds of applause. FHNB got Bill’s speaking engagement fee. That was nice. Great job last night Bill!

We had a really good, I thought so, discussion on Saguaro Lake and how to create a High Quality Bass fishery. Too many details to write up here. After a brief presentation by Jim Warnecke, suffice it to say Ken Levy had his say, I had mine, Bill Warman gave his views as well as Ken Kross. It was as good and as lively a discussion as you can have with AZGF.

After that, the Southwest Walleye Anglers had good discussion as well, from my seat at least, on 2004 plans for walleye stockings.

I suggested the next meeting be held before the next Bill Luke Big Bass Days and have BLBBD reps there to present any changes they are making to their tourney based upon our prior discussions.

I got fed great food, I got top notch fishing info, I got free stuff, I got to meet some new people, I got to have my say, and I had a great time doing it. Doesn’t get any better than that.

I'm glad everyone had a great time! I finally finished the last part of my 9hr final last night. Now I can finally go to one of these things and do a MMBC. I sure wish that I could have been there. If there's freebies, I'm in! :lol:

See y'all on the water.

I must say I had a good time. I forgot to take a pen, so when Bill started talking I was kicking myself in the ass. I had to barrow pens from everyone around me. I still got a lot of info from this meeting

go figure my girl had a performance

How can I get one of those maps of Canyon??????? Will Pay Real American Dollars. My girlfriend had a performance and I was not able to attend my first meeting. I made a choice that would get her off my back about wanting to fish all the time.

It sure was great. Nice meeting Fishin3 and Greg, as well as chatting with D A, Ken, Husker, and others. I too spaced out and forgot a pen, I've got a good memory though, most of the stuff Bill said sunk in right off the bat.
What did you guys think about his rock Clanging theory? I've never heard of anything like that. He's got to have some good ears. He does catch some moster fish so I beleive it, just can't picture it in my head.

Josh, the only rocks I hear clicking while I'm fishing are from those in my head! :lol:

Each time I hear rock clanking at canyon I look up to make sure the big horn sheep are not trying to kick them on my head. Those sheep are head hunters with those rocks!

December Round Table Meeting

I appreciate the kind words from everyone. The facts that was brought out at the class are true, At least the ones I brought to the table. I was hoping to see many more anglers at the meeting. These meetings are for all Arizonans not just a few. Please think of your children and grand children we might be able to make a difference for them.

I appreciate Kick’n Bass (Ken Kross) for attending.

Even though Ken was at the meeting and Ken is a sponsor of mine, I use his products. I swear by the KNB garlic scent. Repeatedly it has proven its worth.

For further information regarding the new Tie-Not system, see the lure of the future at
