30 posts in this topic

While fishing out on French lake, years ago, I set the hook big time and right down the hole went a Colman double mantle latern. Watched it turn the vexilar green until it hit bottom. Tried snagging it, but no luck. We did bring a nice mess of fish home tho...............

A nice LED lantern, and about $10 worth of jigs over the season. One night when I was packing up I forgot my box of jigs on the roof of my car and drove off never found them.

First time out 5 years ago I lost a full, unopened can of Bud Light. My buddy and I spent the next few hours coming up with great Super Bowl commercials about it.

Example:

Call police, tell them your bud (instead of buddy) fell in the lake, they send a full search crew with divers, the crew comes up with full unopened can, and I smile and slam the beer...

Two years ago, somewhere in the abyss of Red lake my son found out the hard way that his WWE action figures of "Tripple H" and "Batista" did not float! Maybe Kelly P has found them or the Red Lake seals ate them!

The holes in a fishhouse seem to have magnetic powers over dice. If you miss them they leave the table, everyone just looks at each other and listens as they hit the heater or bucket then the floor and roll then silence. Everyone hopes it hits the edge but the sound is always the same. Kerploop.

dropped a can of campbells chucky chicken noodle soup (opened of course) Saved the can, but the noodles & all the fixins went down the hole. Had a whole pile of noodles under my hole. The white color of the noodles (or the smell) DO NOT attract any fish. The pile went straight down and stayed there in a blob.

Last year my g/f and I were out fishing in the porty. I went out to put a tip-up out and all of sudden i heard something slam on the floor of the house and hit the water. All at once she yells a bad word and starts yelling here phone went down! She said she watched it slowly float to the bottom. Man she was mad,she called her dad when we got home and he laughed at her!

    • Sweden Creates 55 "No-Go Zones" As It Loses Control Of Refugee Crisis

      Sep 28, 2016 2:45 AM

      As migrants continue to flow into Europe, certain cities across the continent have seemingly lost their ability to maintain law and order amid a surge in violent crime.  The level of violence within the so-called "no-go zones" has risen to a level such that even the police have abandoned efforts to control the streets.  According to RT [4], one particular example is Sweden's third-largest city of Malmo where more than 70 cars were set on fire by arsonists over the past several days.  Meanwhile, authorities noted that offenses range from vandalism to drug crimes, sexual assaults and gun violence. 

      Per recent media reports, there are now as many as 55 “no-go zones” spread throughout several Swedish cities where the police have little to no ability to control rising violence.  The surging violence is putting a huge burden on over-worked police officers who are reportedly choosing to quit the force in record numbers. 

      “We have a major crisis. Many colleagues are choosing to quit,” police officer Peter Larsson told the Norwegian broadcaster NRK. “A drastically worsened working environment means many colleagues are now looking for other work.”

      Recently the city of Malmo faced a string of arsons in which 16 vehicles were torched across the several neighborhoods in just one night.  As fire commander, Magnus Johansson, noted the rising violence is exhausting public resources and making it impossible to service the needs of Swedish citizens.

      “All our stations are overloaded and the whole of the Malmo force is out extinguishing the car fires,” fire commander Magnus Johansson told SVT. “It is a burden for our organization, but also for other people who really need our help,” he added.

      The burning of cars continued into the early hours of Friday morning, with a further 11 vehicles torched. A total of nine neighborhoods were affected by the arson attacks.

      Meanwhile the Hungarian government recently introduced a page [5] that alleged that as many as 900 "no-go zones" exist in major cities across Europe.  The page also warned against mandatory European quotas that only serve to "increase the terrorist risk in Europe."

      "The mandatory European quotas increase the terrorist risk in Europe and imperil our culture.

      Illegal migrants cross the borders unchecked, so we do not know who they are and what their intentions are. We do not know how many of them are disguised and may be terrorists.

      Those who come to the EU illegally do not respect our laws and do not want to share common cultural values.

      If we do not act, we will not recognize Europe in a few decades.”

      The Hungarian government has long rejected a mandatory quota for the resettlement of migrants and refugees with the Prime Minister calling for border walls to be built along the Bulgarian and Macedonian borders with Greece.

      As rising immigration has become a political hot-topic across Europe, many elected officials have dismissed the existence of "no-go zones."  Meanwhile, Ingrid Carlqvist, editor-in-chief of Swedish newspaper Dispatch International, told RT [6] that terminology used to describe rising violence is "just semantics" but the fact remains that there are certain areas where "when the police come there, they will get stoned and people will try to set fire to police cars and so on."

      No, it’s not. This is just semantics. The Swedish authorities don’t want to call them ‘no-go zones.’ They think that ‘no -go zones’ is place where no one can enter. But that is not what normal people mean. They mean that the ambulances can’t go there without police escort. When the police come there, they will get stoned and people will try to set fire to police cars and so on. They are lawless areas – and that is what people call ‘no-go zones’. No normal person would ever go inside there.

      But what we see here is that people in these areas, the people who live there, who are mostly Muslims are actually saying this. When Swedish journalists go in there, they just tell them to “f*** off,” because this is not Sweden. They are trying to impose Sharia law in these areas and they are doing a good job about it. The police could do things: they could go in there and just stop all of it when they set fire to the cars and when they throw stones, they could do something. But the longer they wait, the more impossible this job will be of course, because now we have at least 55 of these zones in Sweden.

      But we thought Angela Merkel made it very clear that "we can do this."

      Keep voting democrat, Minnesota !...:crazy:

    • HeelllllllllllNo!   What a waste.  

    • Ross Perot had the right solution for the trade issue way back in 1992, and here we are in 2016, on the same track as we were then.

       

    • Although I do think Trump made a valid point in regards to the one-sided trade agreements our politicians have entered us into.

      But I don't agree that it is entirely the fault of the Democrats though.

    • This is true until the day we change it, if you keep giving your votes to these fools then yes you deserve it. Instead of making a 100 excuses to vote the same way over and over why not try something different. Don't give me some fear based talk about the lesser of two evils and keeping so or so out, that doesn't work any more.
    • Smoking deal! 7x13 is a little big man if I had the extra cash and I could get rid of the trailer I currently have and I would take it in a heart beat! Thanks for the offer though!
    • I was thinking sensors maybe too
    • The majority of the aluminum has arrived, the build should start next week.  I am going to go with 2 runners initially, once framed up I will check for strength and rigidity.  If I need to add the 3rd runner, I will.
    • Me and Mollie will be there.
