Bass for sure. smile

I may be crazy when it comes to some things but I sure am not stupid winkgrin

Bass are fun smile. If you have a low opinion of them like I had, join the FLW fantasy fishing league and this will change your mind very quickly on bass fishing. wink

As someone who has taken a late night trip to the ER because of a stick in the eye, I'd prefer the bass please. smile

How about this: Would you rather catch a stick, or be hit in the eye with a bass?

Maybe we should poke the bass in the eye with the stick, then all go out for a nice walleye dinner:)

Reel in a smallmouth or a wet rag. Which do you prefer?

Frankly, I like any fish that bites.

Being as how sticks probably make better table fare than bass, and they're about as easy to catch, I'd take the stick, be it blunt or sharp, green or dried.

Man, I know I'm stuck down here at work and cant be out fishing right now, but I cant believe you are all spending your time comparing bass to whatever instead of out catching something, be it bass, walleye, sticks, rocks or what have you. That being said I'll take the bass. And by the way traveler, I think thats called spearing and there is no season for bass with that.

I don't understand people who don't like catching certain fish.

I love catching anything that bites.. AND everything that doesn't! Sure would like to get myself a paddlefish someday.

Bass are fun, tasty, and plentiful.

Does it really matter?

Atleast if it's your dominant eye that goes, you would get the challenge of some rehab. When it comes to Bass fishing, the challenge is......... well I guess there really isn't one. grin

You guys that say these hurtful things about America's most popular game fish must think the only bass out there are those little dinks that swim with those sunnies you catch off your pontoon! grin

It takes a man-sized commitment to grind out a day searching for the big females.

Oh, I know, now comes the "I catch 4 & 5 pound bass every time I drag a leech across my favorite walleye bar".

But the whole time you're fighting it you're thinking "God I hope this is a walleye - its gotta be a 10 if it is". gringrin

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
    • Kinda like the Eskimo thread on I.S. some years back?
