Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default I caught 2 northern pikes today!

A old guitar player/singer band buddy called me out of the blue. "I'm on my way to your county with my boat. Want to tag along?"

We met at a local lake. He caught 2 bass and 1 pike. I caught 2 pike. The most fun we had was actually BS'ing, harassing one another and telling old "war stories".

I haven't caught a pike in years. I was geeked! One of them was over 24" and was certainly a keeper, but we threw him back after photos. Good times.

Fishing for pikes can be fun, fishing for pike with the light tackle it can be really fun.

Catch and release. Good men..
I can't kill the damn fish I catch em release em then go to the store and buy them. Not opposed by any means of catching and cooking I just can't do it when their staring at me.
Maybe I should blindfold them??

I go both ways on fishing. Sometimes it's catch and release. Other times it's catch and cook. Like you, I've never enjoyed killing and cleaning fish. It's a big chore and I always seem to be fighting off mosquitoes with a filet knife.

I've always loved light tackle. It makes the smallest bluegill feel huge!

When I was a kid, I got a cheap Zebco ultra-lite rig for Christmas. I tried it and was hooked.
