"WELCOME FISHERMEN"

Recommended Posts

I am excited to head up north for opener. Just wondering if all the "WELCOME FISHERMEN" signs bug you as much as they bug me? The term is ANGLERS!

Hey Walleye Queen welcome to the "women's section"! Actually the signs don't really bother me too much and I do get a kick out of going to a fishing show and being completely ignored by the salesmen unless my husband is with. But then again it is kind of nice because I can look around without being bothered.

If it is Hunt and Hunter, why not Fish and Fisher?

Hey Clayton I think she is referring to the "man" part of it. grin.gif But Fisherwoman sounds kind of weird thus the Angler. But as my husband says you can call me any thing you want - just don't call me late for dinner!

I know what she was saying, that's why I suggested "fisher." If "hunter" can be used without modification, why not "fisher"?

Of course if you need something tacked on, there's always "fisherfolk."

"Fisherperson" is no good, 'cause "son" refers to male offspring. Besides, it's four syllables.

I guess Anglers is proper but whatever works to get the crowd in. But yesterday I was walking into the Cormorant store and looked across at the Liquor store and there was a sign "Welcome Fishermen". I was walking down the street laughing - good thing nobody was around! But at least you can say I was paying attention to the fishingmn site!

You can write the breweries that provide the signs and tell them you are boycotting their products because of sexist language. It might work.

I still don't know what's wrong with fishers, as fish is both a verb and a noun.
You can fish. You can be a fisher.

But what if they all provide signs? What would we drink while fishing? This could be bad!

    • And what would there version be?
    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
    • I just started her up and let her run a bit yesterday.  Wouldn't get out fishing until all the Holiday stuff is over in a few weeks but then the ice should be good and more snow hopefully.  Thanks for the reply over yonder! 🙂
    • What type of solution?    Not it directed at you personally but I find it amusing that by and larger hunters and fishermen are the most anti government anti regulation types yet are the first to overharvest due to lack of self control and then are the first to Beyotch when the DNR doesn’t stop it.
