This post from Bob got me so excited about
fishing that I went down to the boat house (I write from our cottage on Lake of The Woods in far western Ontario) and checked out my fishing gear and the wee boat I take fishing. I may just get some minnows tomorrow and head out. It is GFMPH, right?
And, Michael, Ben and Jerry's is a cathedral to believers such as myself, but I don't chase bass. I prefer to fish for walleyes and northerns (Jack fish) and muskies --- although I've never caught a muskie, but we have one that lives around our boat house which does make me think when I go skinny dipping off the dock. Ouch!
Finally, Michael, I endorse your excellent advice to Bob: keep us posted and enjoy life!
