  1. you talk about mayflies - https://www.foxnews.com/us/mayflies-swarm-ohio-lake-erie
  2. Just some tips on cutting down a tree for firewood -
  3. Get a good lawyer and sue the Parks - if you feel that you have been wronged and have or will lose money from your business then that is the best alternative - just a letter from your lawyer could do wonders - good luck
  4. Some guy told me one time that the suckers gather at the casinos -
  5. Now you know how to get even with someone you don't like and have to work with him - https://www.foxnews.com/world/flatulence-in-the-workplace-is-not-a-form-of-bullying-australian-appeals-court-rules
  6. Spring means for me to start getting firewood for next year - try to get it early so it has time to dry out over the summer - burned 5 full sized cords this past winter - all out of it now - once that is done then I can concentrate on fishing
  7. For safety I always bought either pickups a full size SUV or full sized vans because they were higher off the ground and they had frames underneath - when I sit in a car it feels like my butt is dragging on the ground - most cars just fold up like paper when in a crash - a semi would flatten them out like a tin can -
  8. Actually a dog is probably the best fishing buddy - he doesn't complain or want his own way - you can call all the shots -be careful with the hooks so he doesn't get one stuck in his mouth
  9. Yes - that's true - somewhere in the bible they said there is a quote - God does not deduct from ones live - time spent fishing
  10. Ya Lew - those were the good old days - when men were men and women were women - things have gone down hill ever since -
  11. Yes I believe that fishing is good for the soul and body - but it use to be more so when you just went out in a row boat and parked somewhere on the lake and fished with live bait and a bobber - now a days with all the fancy equipment and the tournaments fishing has gotten stressful for many guys - I remember going fishing with my Uncle Herman back in the late 40s - get up early in the morning and sitting on my front porch until he came up the hill in his 39 chevy - I could tell it was him from the sound the car made coming up the hill - a couple nights before I picked a couple dozen nightcrawlers - on the way to the lake we would stop at a gas station on get some minnows - at the lake I had to get the rain water out of the wooden row boat with a tin car - we then rowed out to the lake an anchored along an island - we sat and talked - watched the wild life - and ate the lunches we brought with us - Uncle always had a couple bottles of beer with him to wash down the sandwiches We would catch our limit of bass and chain pickerel then go back into the stumps and catch a mess of perch, sunnies and catfish - it was a real relaxing day and was something I still remember - I think something went away when we drifted away from the old way of fishing
  12. There needs to be a market for these fish - somehow start getting people to eat them - they are probably healthy to eat but like so many other things people got to start recognizing the food value of these fish - if that would happen then they could turn out to be an asset and not a bad thing - good protein - people won't starve with these fish in the water
  13. Man how low get a guy get - https://www.foxnews.com/great-outdoors/bass-fisherman-charged-with-fraud-for-allegedly-cheating-during-tournament
  14. To get sick you need to get the germs from someone - being that you live up there in no-mans land how do you end up getting any sickness
  15. I remember fishing on Horwood Lake one time - one day we decided to go out on the lake when it got dark - we're out there and started hearing a noise which we thought was a train off in the distance - we finally realized it was bugs - trillions of them - all over the place - had to keep your mouth shut or you would be eating them - it must have been some kind of a hatch going on - you would think it was snowing - then one time on Detour lake - we were staying in a cabin - in the evening you couldn't get another mosquito on the screen in the window - it was fully covered with them - some got into the cabin so we had to sleep under the sheets - yes - you got bugs up north
