    bassmaster.com has day 1 info from the Open Championship. 15+ is leading, but weights fall off fast. Be sure to click on the blog. Good pics and info.
  3. I refuse to vote for 99.9% of all proposed tax increases. I worked for the federal government for 32.5 years, and the waste of $ is unbelievable. Every ballot seems to have a 1/4% increase here, a 1/2% increase there. It won't be too long before we are taxed 75%+ overall when all taxes are combined. But then I guess that what socialism is, and sadly we are headed toward it. Tax it all for the NEEDS of the people.

    Man down!

    how did you manage to to get "hooked up" in the first place? The only thing I can imagine is that you were hung up and and pulled on the line and got the old slingshot effect when the crankbait came unsnagged? Please enlighten.

    Fishing Taney in the year 2035....just saying

    interesting topic. Thoughts on the future of fishing. I am 61, and was raised in a boat since I can remember. The first rule was never get on a bank that another boat was fishing, no matter which way they were going. Never fish a point another boat is on. Never go past another boat on plane. Idle only. Be nice and courteous to all other fishermen. The future? Some thoughts at random. All lakes will be put and take for all species by 2050. You already see people requesting more stocking for a lot of lakes, for all species, including carp😂. There will be designated days of the week for fishing, designated days for wake boats, designated days for skiers, jet skis, etc. It may even be designated days for people with last names beginning with A-M, N-Z, and such. Crowding will be a major issue. Boats will be all electric powered, probably some form of nuclear, hydrogen, solar or combination combustion. Regulation of all lakes and rivers will be done at one control point, operated by a Federal Agency, with strict guidelines using artificial intelligence. There will be no local control at all, with no public input. Electronics and equipment? The skies the limit here. I have several other thoughts and ideas from time to time, but it is time for dinner. I am sure others like to "look" into the future. Other thoughts should be interesting.

    Vernon, were ever considered non-essential. I worked for the Corps for 32 years and was never told if was essential or non essential. But it seems to me. if you had a bunch of people on the payroll that were non-essential, it would be prudent to cut payroll? Makes sense doesn't it? But they are from the government and are here to help. I could care less this morning. 55 degrees at 0730, Tee time is at 1000 hours.

    Reel Size for New St Croix Rod

    I wish I had a dollar for every time I have done this in my life. It works with bait casters as well. A good tip for stream fishermen is to do the same at the top of a good riffle. Cut you lure off, let out about 200 feet of line, and let it unwind in the current. A 2 minute routine that will make line twist almost a non issue.
  21. first Wal-Mart open at Beaver in 1998. This is part one, there is a link to part two. I was really surprised who the winner was.
