Here is an old joke that I hope will help ease some of the tension on the board lately about fishing methods.

There is this old guy who always fishes alone and always catches his limit. The local game warden decides that he should find out if the old man is catching the fish legally or not. So one day the game warden asks the old man if he can come along on his next trip, the old man says "Sure, meet at the dock at 6AM tomorrow". The warden is surprised that the old man is so willing and is now hoping that he will learn the secret to always catching fish. When the warden gets to the doc the next morning he appraises the old man's boat and tackle and the all look to be in order, but also there is nothing special about them. They pull away from the dock and start heading out across the lake to a spot that is known to usually hold a few fish. The old man puts out the anchor quietly, but once again nothing special. Then the old man reaches into his tackle box takes out a stick of dynamite, lights and tosses it out into the water. There is a huge explosion and fish start floating to the surface. The warden (after picking himself up off the bottom of the boat) stammers, "You, you, you can't do that" and begins to recite all the rules that the old man has broken. The old man takes out another stick of dynamite, lights it and hands it to the warden and says "Did you come out here to talk or did you come out here to fish" :)

I am not trying to re-open a can of worms. I just thought some levity was in order.

Peace.

:naughty::naughty:Wow, Nobody was even talking about that old subject. Do you seriously want to start an arguement on another thread? Keep it to yourself:naughty:
BTW..I don't even see you talk about fishing on here...Seems like your hobby is chiming in with useless info on unimportant topics.

What ignorant thought of yours brings you to ASSUME that I'm a fool? There's evidence that YOU'RE the simple minded one by referring to me as such. I don't think I said anything foolish. I simply stated some facts.
Your Welcome!

The nice thing about OFF is the fact that users can at any time go back and edit or delete their posts if they think that the post was ill-advised. Angry, inflammatory or accusatory comments belong on other forums.

I think I understand now. This entire forum is actually a place to exchange poaching tips and then make jokes about it. HAHAHAHA.... I guess the joke is REALLY on me. That is why 'I Grade' is leaving this forum to you poaching fans out there. I guess honor and law abiding is for we 'old schoolers' out there and you hip young kids are all too COOL to worry about proper management of a dwindling resource. So remember to keep the leaders long....10' seems to be the magic number, and dont forget your nail clippers to get that pesky fin clipped off those natives while you are at it.

Why can't we all just play nice? The 10' thing is getting old and pick a new subject to get all hot and bothered about like ODFW regs or something? You guys could even tell me how silly and redicoulous my spinners are:lol: I just don't want to start the 10' thing again...please!

Thats what you get when your school reaks of Asbestos, and hasn't had a remodel in 50 years...On top of the fact it was a hospital for 23 years before kids came a destroyed it... But my locker was an old storage unit labled "Liquid Chemicals." And these lockers were located in very strange locations. One of the 35 I used was in a basement...Like creepy, gross basement!
