Breaks generally mean where the "drop-off" is... or where there is an abrupt change in depth, often times accompanied by a change in bottom content.

Lake choices can consistent of a variety of ranges. Mostly, I would look for lakes that have decent crappie populations... and sometimes you can take it one step further and look for lakes with large fish populations. It's important to fish bodies of water that grow larger fish, and sometimes its a guessing game and paying attention to seasonal patterns and records. Also time on certain bodies of water can help you figure out which lakes hold larger fish. Stunted lakes can sometimes be a tough nut to crack...

Matt pretty much nailed it. Breaks/Drop off pretty much mean the same thing. Not all drop off are created equal.

I would use the DNR lake finder and look at what lakes have good populations of crappie. You can also stop at your local bait shop and ask them which are best for your area. OR, you can just go and start drilling holes and give er a shot. Crappie lakes can come in a lot of different sizes and shapes and water clarities.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
