That banana pudding fight was over forty years ago and I never had a clue why she started it (but she knows). We laugh about it whenever we think about it (caution; don't think about it too deep). We were angry, but it is a good memory. You'll both make mistakes with each other. The trick is to hang together long enough to laugh about them.

Profile Information

What type of animal is a bluegill?
Nope, no pond! It would have to be at least 9 acres and a minimum of 20 feet deep for anything to survive the winters up here. I'm 111 miles for Canada!
What state are you from? This can help us get together for fishing trips!

Ice, Ice Baby!

It's that time of year again in Northern Minnesota, when the lakes lock up, the hands, go numb, and we drill to get our fish! Local reports are flooding in with 4-5 inches on most of the smaller lakes. Some of the larger lakes have ice up it is dangerous yet. I don't know when I will be able to get the auger out this year. I have been dealing with Sciactica since September 22nd. I have done phyisical theropy for a month and a half, and most recently had a spinal epidural cortisone shot in…

The Bullworm had a free day......

I finally got some ice time in!!! I have been so bogged down with school and work that I have not been able to get in as much time as I wanted. I was finally able to get away today and drill some holes. Things started out real slow. Not much time had passed and I soon realized I needed to go deeper than my usual 7-9ft. Yup, that's right 7-9ft. I'm a sight fisherman! Staring through the hole, playing the puppet master, that's what I do most of the time. Except for today. Today called for a depth… Continue

So what to do when the lakes are forzen and you have no way to punch a hole? Not much! I have bought some jigs and such but, I happend to stumble upon a tv show on the web, last night. The show is on the Versus…
