that's at least three muskie lure artists and inovators gone in less than a year. Rolf, ''Bobbie'', and now George. i dedicated one muskie release each to Rolf and ''Bobbie'' this year and i'll make sure to dedicate my first one to George next year. hopefully i can get it on an eagle tail. but if not i bet i remember George everytime i do.

Really sad. I got to meet George at the first Musky Expo I went to a few years ago. Stand up guy that always had the sport in mind in everything he did.

My prayers are with the Wahl family.

We all owe a huge and forever unrepayable debt of gratitude and thanks to Mr. Wahl for everything he did in his lifetime to build the fisheries, lures, education, and the overall muskie environment that we all take advantage of and enjoy every day.

Most of us (myself included) never met the man, but if you walked thru the Muskie Expo for example, you enjoyed the windfalls of his efforts. Pretty crazy that an entire arena is devoted to a fish for an entire weekend, eh? That was George at work....

Regards to friends and family....

    • 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.
