What I really get tired of is people saying ” When the Second Amendment was written, they were using muskets , not AR’s.” . At the time, muskets were top-of-the-line, high tech, current military weapons. All guns, including AR’s and most handguns, were developed for military purposes. Release for public use usually came after came after military contracts were filled or expired. Comparing muskets and AR’s is like comparing an abacus and a computer, both were cutting-edge technology at some time, but not now.

Thanks for posting. The question was “When do they bite?”. My answer was “During Tulip festival, and by the thousands.” The only way I had to qualify my answer was to relate exactly what I saw. No more, no less. Seemed that what I saw was an extremely efficient fish harvesting system in action taking advantage of a high point in a naturally occuring cycle. No different than elbow-to-elbow at trout stockings, buckets-full at crappie spawn, etc. Probably fed lots of families for quite some time. Like I said, It was what it was and when it was.

Always remember camping during Pella Tulip Festival, and going below the spillway at Red Rock to watch the Asian people standing shoulder to shoulder catching white bass by the thousands. They would have heavy, 8 or 10 foot cord stringers so full that they couldn’t lift them out of the water. At the end of the day, they would take them back to the campground to “proccess” them. Some were filleted, some ground, none were wasted. The next day, they’d be back for more. Quite different..
…And before it starts, I’m not being racist, judgemental, or bigotted. Just reporting what I saw and when I saw it.

I’ve never subscribed, but I sure do like the little plastic folder- thingie that they send every year. The one from the hunt club is bright orange and it keeps my license nice and clean in my wallet. I’ll sure miss it if they ever drop me from their mailing list 😆

Holy Crap! You mean thieves, thugs, muggers, and rapists are running rampant on our area’s frozen lakes and ponds??? Now I’m paranoid! What caliber should I buy to carry on the Ice? Must be able to penetrate multiple layers of Carharts and long johns. And the clams are now made of “Ice Armor” cloth. I bet it’s nearly the same as ballistic Kevlar, maybe tougher. Maybe armor-piercing rounds are needed. And then what kind of holster??? No ankle holster, boots would cover it Small of the back??? Back to the multiple layers of clothing and Carharts! Probably pocket pistol. But, no, to small a caliber!
Oh, Hell, Guess I’ll have to give up ice fishing and and go back to drinking until I pass out!!!!!!!!!

😀 I went ice fishing yesterday. Met a whole bunch of people. Caught a mess of nice gills. Helped a fella get unstuck. Gave away a couple dollars worth of waxworms when I was done cause one group had only minnows. Had a really great day.
Didn’t once feel the need to be armed!
Maybe we should ALL go ice-fishing.

Years ago I came across a tool that was actually used to clean the orifices in oxy/acetyline torches. Was a tube about the size of a fat ink pen and had dozens of assorted sized tiny drill bits inside. One end was capped, and the other was a vise holder for the bits. A few twists and the eye was clean. Worked super, but now resides in a lake bottom in Canada. 😳
