The story behind your, "Handle"

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what stories are behind everyones user name. Some people have their regular names, some have a catchy ring, some don't make any sense, and some are down right funny so what's your story?

My real name is Eric. Back in the day my friends called me E. My favorite fish is a Bass. I think the rest is history. Now your turn.

I was once known as Bornofice within the walls of FM.com. I can't remember who said it to me many years ago, but they said I ice fished so much that I must have been "born of ice." It stuck in my head from there on out. I still try to live up to that handle.

Not a rookie as far as age (49) or fishing (fished all my life "in the summer"). Finaly went ice fishing about 3 or 4 years ago and of course, got hooked (so to speak). Gotta give my bro-in-law credit for getting me out there...he's been prodding me for 20 years to try it...glad I finaly gave in! Name is Paul and I "love" this site...great info, great topics...learned alot just from what I've read in the last few years.

I was still a Youth Pastor and Club Chaplain when at the 1999 Fishers of Men Fall Outing. One of our guests that year was a jolly blind fellow named John Bowler; When he found out I prefer to fish for Bass immediatlely dubbed me The Basspastor and the moniker stuck even though I am no longer doing ministry as such.

Back in my younger days, much younger, I played a lot of softball and was actually pretty quick. My friends stared calling me mercury. Till this day when they see me they still call me "merc". Now I can't even run to the fridge for a beer!! PS, just a coincidence but I actually have a merc motor on the boat.

Did you here that story about how the internet domain name "men.com" sold for a couple million dollars or something the other day. That's what I did, picked a name hoping I could sell it... Just kidding, I don't know why I picked Piker. I like the Pikers, but don't fish for them much any more.

Oh and, Vikes in '04!!

    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
    • thanks guys, i've only owned 2 blowers. both 2 stage and the first one i think came over on the mayflower!!!!!!!!!!! guess i never paid much attention to other blowers!!!!!
    • Looks great! Big improvement in a small area
