You gotta look at it both ways scooter, the fish pulled off a tremendous win! They do that often and long enough, one or 2 will be powerful hungry sometime soon! And when they are - oh lordy! :)

Was fishin down in Lake Erie over the weekend, got 4 persons limit on Walleye in bout 2 hours. Had to rub it in. Surprised you opted for fishing. I smoke terribly during fishing. When the action is slow (90% of the time.) nothing else to do but smoke and drink and wait. Course out to sea is nice that you can have your nicotine fits in peace. The Michigan Legislature just passed a law yesterday agreeing to add $.50 more cents to a pack. In some places this should be right about the $5.00 mark a pack for the Premium Brands, which I smoke. (Marlboro) Guess time to quite for me. Started this morning. Not going very well yet on temper, but coffee is fresh around here. My biggest problem is I truely enjoy smoking. Guess my wife will be unhappy about me quitting. She will have to find something else to nag me about. But I have faith in her, I know she will find something. LOL

Jim, glad to hear that you are quitting. You might try taking a bit of Pepto-Bismol (about a tea-spoonful) whenever the urge to smoke strikes, then light up. I think you will quit smoking in short order after the pepto! The pepto does not taste bad but the cigarette and the pepto just don't mix. Think you will quit in short order. Good Luck!

In the dark ages my Dad and I would go fishing in Canada, took the tunnel from Detroit, with black market cigarettes in the trunk to be replaced by Whiskey, needless to say I learned to keep my mouth shut. Anyway I digress, we would catch doublheader silver bass, perch and trout. That was when the River was clean!!! Also fished upperstraits Michigan and would catch the best perch and blue gil. I haven't heard about Walleye in ages. Sure brought back memories, I remember once my dad and I fishing with bamboo poles and he hooked a pike and I can still see him now just running with the pole away from the water. Those were really the good old days, just wish he could be here and share some of the Arkansas fishing with me. Thanks for sharing gave me some happy moments.

Also welcome to Scooter's NS Train, Good Luck!

Scooterhead you scared the heck out of me, I thought you fell of the "Scooterhead NS Train". Dennis and I had hotdogs Tuesday night for dinner. Good luck today to everyone on the train. I think I am going to try to take today off and not work my body doesn't want to move without out yelling out "I HURT". My fingers look like stuffed sausages. Think the old arthritis is acting up. Guess I complained enough, great positive though - NO SMOKING!!! YEAH FOR US!!!!!
