Dave I would love to but at the time I volunteered to make John some ants to try. Made some up sent them and dumb me never got a picture. The worst part is I don't remember how I made them but I think I made them from dubbing. Maybe John has a picture and would share it with us.
You are right, Tooty...tough winter. I have to go back to the early 1980's to have low temperatures and ice thickness comparble to this season. Lots of snowfall, but only one big one...last weeks 24 inch storm. I have removed snow 9 times this winter. Praise God for 4-wheel drive!
I have not talked to you for a while. I usually look at bigbluegill.com at work on the week end nights. For some reason whenever I commit on a picture the computer will kick me off the sight. If I blog about something it will let me stay on.
Things are going okay here. I got my new float tube. It is not as roomy as my old float tube. I got that old fishing hole back. It has lots of nine inch gills, and some crappie. It is about 5 miles from my house. I got two more places to fish. Both of these ponds came from patients that I took care of in the hospital. I still have to visit one, which I might do this coming week. The other pond has more crappie then gills in it. Alot of small crappie, but some nice big ones also.
Has the fishing slowed down for you??? I have been doing okay because the gills are in heavy cover. It seems they are all around lay down trees, but not the vertical stumps. So I go from lay down to lay down and catch fish. I think things are about to slow down, since the night temps are going down. I think the ponds will do their turn over and the fishing will be bad, and the water will be to cold for me to float tube. I figure I might have just one more week in the float tube. You take care.
