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.

Do I get to pick which eye?

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

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
