Dang! I am dropping my boat off at Frankies for storage tomorrow. I know, I could fish. But, I have to get it in for winterization and storage when I have the chance. Other work is piling up at home!

Good luck. Can't wait to see some pictures.

Man, today was cold and windy with on and off snow and rain. The bite was slow and boat positioning was hard even on the "calm" side. The gusts were pretty storng. Managed a few despite the wind.

I also got my much needed new seats from Ranger! What do you guys think. At the very least my lower back doesn't hurt so bad when going through the bigger waves!

Forgot to check the bass forum again. Oh well, I can put up a pic. I'll back Tonka up, boat positioning was impossible anywhere more than 50 feet from the calm shore. The good news is the bass on this particular lake appeared to be looking for frogs entering the lake. Got one just under 21". I though it would go over 22, but I think the weather altered my perception (and don't make fun of my muskie measuring stick). Dwarfs the snake my dad caught to complete a double. No word though, or a pic of the full fish on the board (my brother shouldn't be allowed to operate the camera).

I took Thurs and Fri off so I missed the secret word, but the fishing was awesome! I lost count of the 3 to 4 pound bass I caught. I also had a upper 40's inch muskie follow my buzzbait to the boat. That got the heart pumping!

Here is a shot of my largest of the weekend. It was 20.5" and 5lb 9oz.

I got skunked Friday afternoon. Was on the lake at 3:45 and I fished till 6:30. I tried the rage tail shad, Zara spook, Minus one, spinner bait, buzz bait, and a wacky rigged sinko... Nothing. I had at least 8 or 9 swing and misses on the rage and the spook. Water temp was 50 degrees and the water was clear so I'm thinking either that lake turned already or was just about to. Still very weird to have that many fish simply miss the hook. I did set the hook on one and felt the weight but she came unbuttoned after a second or so... Frustrating. I'll try to get out at least a couple more times yet.

    • 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.
