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.

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.

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
