Lets hear them I know you see the old timers out on the lake fishing out of a little boat. No one pays attention to them but there stroking the fish. My grandpa always you use to say if the lilacs are blooming the fish are biting. or if the lady slippers have popped the crappies are hot. anyone else have any sayings?

You can't catch fish with your bait out of the water.

Get out of the minnows!

Hand me a beer.

Don't eat all the chips.

The time to go lake trout fishing is when the popple leaves are as big as beavers ears.

If the wind is from the west, the fish bite best.

If the wind is from the east, the fish bite least.

If the fish is from the north, fisherman go forth.

Nobody ever said with happens with the wind is from the south. laugh

my grandpa always used to say "if you can see the bass, he can see you"

he'd also say "straight worms" when you headed out on the water, instead of "tight lines"

I think an old timer named REO mentioned this one, "You can tune a piano but you can't tune a fish". Some of you middle agers will get it:)

You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't buffalo Bill.

You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be lead.

Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like bananas.

You being on vacation is like 2 good workers showing up for work.

My Gramps had a few good ones:

"I don't need luck, I just need to get there."

"where ya fishin at?"......."You can't get there from here!"

You gotta bail hay when the sun shines.

Your nickle shoot.

Grass don't grow on a busy street.

If the salesman's lips are moving, he is lying.

You'll only get caught if you are doing what your not suppose to be doing.

It is only worth that if you can find someone to pay that.

My grandfathers's favorite, Son of a biscuit eater and good lord willing and the creek don't rise.
