RE: Thliveros won't fish Tour – I hate to see you go, Peter T. I totally understand, though. You were the main reason I won my first BFL years ago as a co-angler on Lake Dardanelle. I remember talking to you at the Bassmaster tournament on the Arkansas River several years ago. You explained to me the virtues of the C-rig and gave me some great tips on how to fish it. Up until that point, I had surprisingly never fished it. I spent the rest of the year learning how to fish it. I only caught two fish the entire day, but they were the right ones I needed to win.
I was a fan of yours for years but your generosity made me a follower. I have never spoken with you since then but I always dreamed of eating at your restaurant and thanking you. I’m an old-school worm and jig fisherman also and our ranks are slowly thinning out. First Guido and now you. I’m really sad about this. Hopefully, I can slide down to Florida and book a guide trip with you. I would gladly pay any amount to spend a day in the boat with you. You will be sorely missed. Thanks again for the info and the great memories you helped to create for me. Salute!
