George I saw/heard that conversation and that made my day too, he was adamant about that plug. When you told him it wouldn't hold in the current he did not budge on his decision. Very cool, he listened to every detail of from using cut hooks to how to fish it.

Nice putting SB handles to names & faces. I learned a lot and met some good people.

Highlight came at the end when some quiet 16yo kid was standing there drooling over a purple skinny donny. Said he fished 360 hrs at night in the canal last year (using his mother for transport, God bless her) and wanted to buy one to try there. I told him it was too unstable, he said he'd use it at slack. So I gave it to him. He pulled out a wallet to try and pay me and I told him no, just to take it and fish it. He stood there wide eyed when I had my best idea of the day………………………………I turned to Paul and told him to give the kid a plug…….and of course he did.

Three happy people. A good day all around.
You guys just made my day.

Not a dig at the Berkeley show, or friends and peers I see down there at all, but this all looks refreshing. Nice work on those tables....

Great time as always. Plugfest is the one day you feel right at home obsessing over pieces of wood.

I would like to know as well. I stayed just to vote on the Bass Aqua that should have won a few years back.

Had a blast, great seeing some familiar faces and meeting lots of new people. Already getting ready for next year.

Paul won best classic for that one

I think the lobster won best of show
googooman maybe most likely to catch a cow on first cast
but that was a beauty also.

The lobster was pretty awesome too, but I keep thinking about that squid. Such talent. Something to aspire to.

I voted for the squid darter as best in show, first because it was awesome, secondly because it was an actual lure. I don't think that lobster although incredibly detailed down to the barnacles on it, qualifies as a lure... doubt you could cast, troll, or swim it.

I think North Shore won novice by a landslide.

The lobster would have won the "More likely to be eaten by a human before a fish" category
