There's a small lake just north of Ames, Ia named Aya Harden Lake. Does anyone know anything about it? I'm trying to find info about it online. Thanks.

It's Ada Hayden and it is managed by the city of Ames. It is an old gravel pit that the city took over to help insure that they had a water source in low water times. I have never fished it but have heard that they have put restrictions on the # of fish you can take. You might be able to find some information on the city of Ames web site under parks and rec. I do know that it is an electric only lake and that you cannot even have a gas motor on your boat.

i left ames just before it opened, but have been there once. seems to have alot of steep dropoffs and is very clear. bass fishing may be better at night or really early. if ya wanna have some fun, just hit the river accross the road from ada hayden. it helps if ya get wet. just throw a popR in the slower water and a spinner or rapala in the current. tons of smallies in the skunk. bring an ultralite as the fish are kinda small, but the possibility for 3 pounders is there.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
