    Listen I will try to be nice just stay away otherwise I will have to continually point that you have been measured and found to have come up short, short stack, dullest knife in the drawer, Mayor of Simpleton.

    That's fine, saying it as I see it.

    You've said many times how your a lucky SOB,
    I see it different.
    You're a miserable SOB,,
    And just a guess but I'm figuring those you work with would agree.

    You have more rants and pet peeves than anyone I've ever seen post on the net.

    You gonna bow hunt this year? Being a bow hunting forum and you're such a "huge" part of it, I was just wondering?

    I really think you are one paranoid dude!:ninja:

    Listen you can not begin to comprehend the complexities of what I am contemplating at any given time, any critical analysis that you would offer even at a elementary level would be so far off base it would be worthless. You admitted last year that while you were taking a bath you thought you would urinate in a beer can rather than get out of the tub, and you ended up with your own piss in your mouth, and you think you are in a place to offer meaningful analysis of me?

    Yes I am hunting I made the transition to farm country with more acres at my disposal.

    I just want to say I can't wait to get out on the water soon! Took the boat out of storage last weekend and put a new Power Pole on it. I need to mount another sonar unit on the bow and I think I'm ready to rock for this season. I have a fresh shipment from Tackle Warehouse arriving tomorrow.

    Just need to get through turkey season and it's go time.

    On the way to work this morning I passed 3 lakes that were open, not so much at home though.

    Still pretty cold here - the ice just came off some of the bigger lakes in the last 10 days or so. I have another youth turkey weekend this weekend or I would probably be on the water. Hopefully the weather is good the weekend after for the 2021 maiden voyage.

    My boat is plugged in and should be on the lake this weekend. We have been catching bass and crappie for a couple of weeks now out of ponds. The shallow lakes should be rocking soon.

    My son is coaching football for the next 6 weeks so not available to help put the dock in, kind of a bummer. The weather sucks today and this week I want to put the new boat in for a ride but not willing to freeze to do it. I was going to wait but I am going to eliminate weight on the boat do not need the old bow mounted electric trolling motor, the biminy top the 4hp trolling motor all will be taken off. I am already thinking about how I am going to redo the boat. Thinking about removing all carpet and going with synthetic flooring.

    Had a pretty good weekend on the new fishing boat. Got onto a good crappie bite Saturday, yesterday was slower but the monster gills and warmouth kept us busy at least. Having fun exploring some of the lakes around and making upgrades to the boat.

    Fishing has become a far more expensive hobby for me than hunting. There's always something to upgrade and new toys to buy!

    I was thinking "The Below Average Fisherman" for my series title. Follow along on my journey to catch a pair of 14" largemouths on every other outing.

    Follow us this week as we go through 2 dozen baitfish and land 3 bass.
    Definitely could relate to that one!
