Toadfish and Wacky decided to visit one of their favorite spots today, Patterson Lake in Aurora. As we were casting a scumfrog from shore a fellow angler stopped by to check on the action. It turns out Tommy1982 had just found this spot through a YouTube video posted by DuPage Angler. He decided to get out of the house for a few hours. He has a new five week daughter at home, so this was a feat in and of itself.
 It turns out Tom just joined the site, which was certainly cool news. Anytime we run across new members, or even current members by chance, makes the meeting all that much more enjoyable.
 We were fishing a spot where Toadfish had seen a bass jump three feet out of the water after a dragonfly earlier. All of a sudden, a nice bass splashed up on the frog but couldn't get a grip on it. As any angler would, Tommy1982 tossed his frog in the same spot and pulled out this nice bass. Although Tommy1982 is holding it, proper protocol is to give the catch to Toadfish. (at least that's how Toadfish explained it)
 Well Tommy1982, welcome to the site. It was great to meet you and look forward to many more days on the water with you in the future.
