  1. It's fun. Isn't that why most of us post?
  2. Nightwing: quote: Let me know where the big carp hang out on Muskegon...... I was thinking of trying out the side of the channel where the submarine is...looks like it's easier to get to the lake-end of the channel from there. If you're after carp I think the Grand river would be a better choice, but you can catch walleye, pike, bass, and sheepshead all along the channel from Muskegon lake to the Coast Guard station. My fishfinder graph is black with fish all through the channel, so something is down there. Salmon and steelhead run through there in early Sept. I don't have many

  4. Great photos, Paul. I would like to add that if you look to the right of the Wilfred Sykes in the Muskegon channel you will notice a portion of the USS Silversides, a retired US Navy sub that sank dozens of Japanese ships in WWII. It's now a museum open to the public. Small world, isn't it? I slip my boat in Muskegon Lake. It loves gasoline: Here's a 26 lb chinook salmon my cousin caught last summer off Muskegon. His boy is 7 years old. I had to turn the boat and chase that fish because it was spooling us: 13.5 lb brown trout and myself: A box o
  5. Apparently, there are those in this world who are underwhelmed by status symbols.
  6. Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers. After every flight, pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that need repair or correction. The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken, and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense o
  7. Welcome to the site. It's a real grin, isn't it?
  8. I agree with yoxer. There was an e-message going around a few weeks back encouraging folks to boycott U.S. gas on Wed., May 19. It was largely ignored.
  9. Good one, Newt. That reminds me of another duck joke: A guy goes into a bar and notices a tiny little man playing a piano. Intrigued, he asks the bartender about him and is told that a Leprechaun over in the corner is granting free wishes that day. The guy approaches him and wishes for a million bucks. "Granted" says the Leprechaun, "now go look outside." When he does, he sees a vast field of ducks - a million of them spread out to the horizon. So he goes back into the bar, bitterly complaining to the barkeep that the Leprechaun must be hard of hearing, because he botched the wish. "So
  10. Two gays were walking on the beach, when one spotted a strange bottle bobbing in the surf. He picked it up and wiped it, whereupon a Genie appeared and promised to grant him one wish for having released him from the bottle. He decided to mull it over before deciding on the wish, so he and his companion camped on the beach that night. The next morning when they awoke they were surrounded by Klu Klux Klansmen, replete with burning crosses, robes with pointy hats, and gallows. "Did you make a wish?", asked the second gay. "Yes", replied the first. "Well, what did you wish for?" "I wished
  11. Bluezulu: quote: could be worse we could all speak bloody french!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It must be brutal learning English, because of all the double-meanings. For example: time flies like an arrow, while fruit flies like a banana. How could you know there is a difference? Also: What do you call a person who knows 3 languages? Tri-lingual. What do you call a person who knows 2 languages? Bi-lingual. What do you call a person who knows 1 language? An American. Ken [ 28. May 2004, 11:39 PM: Message edited by: severus ]
  12. Superman and Lois Lane broke up one day. The following night the Man of Steel was feeling amorous, so he flew to her bedroom window for a peek. Using his x-ray vision to view her in the darkness, he saw that she was lying buck-naked and on her back, with legs spread far apart. Faster than a speeding bullet, he flew in, did the wild thing, and left with a loud "whoosh!" "What the devil was that?", exclaimed Lois, sitting up. "I don't know", replied the Invisible Man, "but my butt sure does hurt!"
  13. You're right, Snatcher, here's a few more. I'm still grinning from MadMax's limerick. There once was a girl from South Philly, Who quit Greenpeace for she thought it too silly, I said, “Don’t worry Gail, If you wish to pet a whale, Just undo my zipper and free Willy.” There was a young woman from Maine, Who declared she’d a man on her brain, But you knew from the view, Of the way her waist grew, It was not on her brain that he’d lain.
  14. Walking into the bar, Harvey said to the bartender, "Pour me a stiff one, Eddie. I just had a fight with the little woman." "Oh yeah," said Eddie. "And how did this one end?" "When it was over," Harvey replied, "she came to me on her hands and knees." "Really? Now that's a switch! What did she say?" "She said, "Come out from under that bed, you gutless weasel!!!"
  15. Budgie: quote: Not used sideplanners Sev but have used Dipsy Divers and Kussumo Trolling vanes.I'm not familiar with trolling vanes, Budgie, but I routinely run 3 dipsey rods as part of my presentation, one down the chute and two side ones. They're like a poor man's downrigger. Leadcore is very effective trolled behind inline planer boards, mainly because boat turns cause the leadcore to rise/fall, giving the lure a lot of action and triggering strikes. Plus, planers keep the leadcore away from other lines, which avoids tangles (if you've never tangled leadcore, don't - it becomes a use
