Da Boyeeeezzz do Sugar Lake/Vegas and a schedule update
Pretty much an awesome last 7 to 10 days for this guy. Last Thursday we left for Vegas and the Boyeeeez rolled out there with me for 3 nights. I ended up staying a week. Like I’ve said before….Vegas is home for me and when I leave the land of easy money it’s just me taking a vacation from Vegas. Before we get into the Vegas antics, let’s talk about the Sugar Lake trip that we took prior to jumping on the plane to Vegas. Sugar can be described using any superlative that you want right now. It is really tough for me to describe. Check out some pics and Vaughn’s MEGA walrus that went 10-1 pounds.
That fish right there made my day, week, month, year, whatever time period you wanna use. You see…..Vaughn has stuck with me and spent THOUSANDS of dollars and COUNTLESS hours over the last 3 years. He has seen a couple great trips, but man oh man has he seen some God awful ones as well. My brother from another mother refused to back down and just kept booking trips, racking up insane airline miles (lives in Illinois). Sooooooooooo to have Vaughn boat that fish which is pictured above was so dag gone sweet. If there was one Highstakesbassin client that deserved a fish like that it would be Vaughn. Doc, Vaughn and this crazy SOB…..
………just smoked the fish all day. I mean quality after quality after quality. These men, as you can probably tell by Sir. James’ pic had a dynamite time. Here are a few more pics from the trip.
I know what you are thinking……WTH is James doing with that damn seagull. For about a 7 minute window we had a straight up natural disaster brewing on the Sugar Express. First Vaughn got hung up and broke off…..ok no worries, I gave him a new rod and proceeded to re-tie him and next thing you know Doc gets a professional over-run (backlash) and the line gets wound up into the trolling motor. Oh shit……ok shut the TM down and go to get my tools so that I can operate on the TM when I hear “Son of a bitch!…..I got em!” Thinking that James got em a good fish I turn to look at this seagull being reeled in and putting up a dang good fight I might add. Don’t worry tree huggers and animal nuts, Sally the seagull will live to poop on pavement another day. If there was ever a time I wanted a go pro on board it would of been during those 7 minutes. It would of put this “BRO” bomb bloopers video to shame.
The Vegas trip was a crazy amount of fun, but I got some sort of stomach ailment on the way into Vegas and really battled it the whole trip. It seemed to get better with tequila and Miller Lite and really did well with Vodka Redbulls. I’m being serious……..strange stuff. Here is our Limo driver waiting for us at baggage claim.
I had one night that I wish I could take back because I lost a small village of money and tried catching a walrus in the Bellagio fountains. (as you can imagine tequila was a major player that night) You ever see NSFW when you are about to open a blog thread or email? It means the contents of said material are “Not Safe For Work”. Well the contents of that night are NSFMM. “Not Safe For My Mother”………I’m sure I’ll get a phone call 13 minutes after posting this. It was Friday night and I was on Tuesday’s Money envelope. Turning tricks on the corner of Freemont and Main became a real possibility after the Bellagio fountain incident. As luck would have it I had an absolute MONSTER trip from a sports betting standpoint. Like lose 2 games all week type of monster trip. Check out my last sports ticket of the week.
I hit this early in the week with the Good Doctor……first ever hand pay on a poker machine.
Like I said…….great trip with great friends and brought back a few bucks to boot.
Let’s look at a schedule update pic below.
If you DO NOT see your dates marked as “booked” call, text, or email me again. I got flooded with inquiries while I was in Vegas. Not a lot of bookings mind you, but a lot of people kicking the tires and trying to decide on dates. If you thought you booked some dates, but they are not showing up on my calendar, it’s probably on me. Trying to keep track of everything while fishing for walruses at the Bellagio fountains while drinking a martini can prove difficult at times.
Looking forward to a busy month ahead. See yall in a few days!
