Diamond is Ice free and I am going up this Saturday, fired up the main so everything is ready. sorry but my boat is full. Have been doing exercises to strengthen my legs. I don't know how many of you know it but if you get a 20 incher take it to the boat house where they will remove some of the scales and fill out a card and you will be entered into a drawing for a $50 good at some of the sporting good stores..

I had a crew up there last weekend they did quite well Trolling, the anchored bait bite was not good for them at all.

I don't fish like most bottom fishers do.. I developed a system several years ago that will out fish about 90 % of them. But first you must do a fish dance. Glad to know trolling was good. I will tell you this much, I had a friend of mine who was going to Diamond and I told him how I did it, at the lake he changed back to his old system for his own reason. There was a young girl who he did not change back and according to him she caught 75% of the fish,. There are more stories but I won't waste your time, however I have had people come to me who are proficient fishers, and they have increased their catch rate. nope I won't tell you on line.

I know for a lot of the younger people this may mean nothing, but what used to take me a day to mow now takes 6 to 7 days to mow and I have placed several chairs and have a few spots to rest my back and legs.. Contrary to to what many people think, getting old(er) is fun it is just the difficulties and or the pain that sometimes goes with it. I used to be one of those who never worried about lifting the heavy stuff and I was warned but I did not listen, now I am paying for it. However it was fun and if I could do it all over again....yep I most likely would, I was a diesel mech in the Navy and we never had those fancy tools like chain falls etc. I never served on a ship built after WWII, so it was all muscle that got the work done and yes I took a lot of pride in moving or lifting things others could not. One time Karl and I lifted a carried crankshaft for a flat head Superior 6 banger, once we got it into position it took 6 others to put it into the engine. We were somewhere between Viet Nam and Guam. If I remember right my best day for four of us was 42 fish,,@ Diamond Lake that is...................
