Before we do this: The beach at Kelleys Island State Park. It's not the ocean, but it's still going to be an awfully nice way to spend next week. We’ll do this: Thanks, Michelle, for making me look like I might know what I'm doing. And even this: We won't be doing the fishing, but my mother in law and her husband are in town to follow the FLW Outdoors Forrest Wood Cup bass tournament this weekend. I don't know who Forrest Wood is. I am looking forward to all three. Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestTumblrRedditEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Is spectating allowed? ciao, rpm LikeLike Fred: Remember Dave Kingman? RPM: You’ve seen the directions already, right? Come out and watch; fun for grownups and kids alike (we usually have BurghBaby’s daughter and a baby or two out with us as well). And I’d love to see my Monkey again. LikeLike Those are really nice fish! LikeLike kingman’s cool, but he doesn’t feel quite right. although “king kong kingman” was a good nickname. your team should start calling you “THUNDER” in honor of former indian andre thorton. another option would be “BOOMER” for george scott. i don’t think he ever played for the indians, but he played for the brewers and you like beer. LikeLike Large: My understanding is that part of the fun of holding big bass tournaments like that in Pittsburgh is that there are no fish like that in our Three Rivers. Plenty of small one, yes, but not the monsters these guys are used to landing. I guess it’s a challenge for them, and pretty serious entertainment for those who watch. Fred: I’m told my official nickname is “Lefty McThump.” I’m OK with that. LikeLike I didn’t know you were going to Kelly’s Island. How often do you get out there? Did you know about the outdoor art gallery (there is even better stuff inside too). Basically a sculptor/painter living on the island really good stuff. It is back behind the air strip. http://www.charlesherndon.com/ Worth a visit. Also if you get to the KI Brew Pub let me know how it is because I’ve never been able to sneak away from my fam and sample a few when I’m there. LikeLike PS I’m sure you’ll spend most of your time at the Ohio St themed Buckeyes Bar in the main part of town. LikeLike Norm: I didn’t know about the gallery. We’ll be sure to check it out. We do know about the brewpub, though; the last time we were there — maybe three years ago — it was just OK. We’re going to give them another shot, though. We love Kelleys. It’s a lot quieter than South Bass, and the fact that it has an actual beach helps a lot too.
