Hayward, WI Fishing Hall Of Fame Museum

12 posts in this topic

On the way home from a week in Munising,MI we stopped in Hayward,WI this morning to check out the Fishing hall of Fame museum. My son fell in love with the place. Took us a good 2 hrs

to go through it all. They have the worlds largest collection of old outboard motors anywhere. Was cool to look them over along with all the fish mounted displays.

I had to laugh at the bigfoot statue. What does that have to do with freshwater fishing? Thanks for the tour.

That Bigfoot is a riot. I love the old paddle boat looking thing. I'm also glad to see they found room outside to mount that sunny I sent them!! grin

If you like that collection of old antique outboards you should see my dads collection. He is well known around the midwest for his work and just sold his restored SwitzerCraft to Bob Switzer himself for a museum in Illinois.

Hayward is a cool little town, and worth checking out if anyones in the area.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
    • He is still out there, at the hearing for DeVoss, proving why he needs to retire to his new 600k lake home on Lake Champlain where he can spend his days searching for Champ, the monster said to live in lake Champlain.     http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/314783-assange-lawyer-conditions-not-met-for-assange-manning-extradition-offer   Almost got him!
