Ratchet straps, cargo hooks and fence posts: Not your typical ice fishing gear

077

I have this buddy who claims to LOVE fishing…But apparently he doesn’t consider ice fishing to be in the same category, so after a poor night’s sleep a few years back he decided to stand me up for a planned day out on the ice…Instead, he suggested we do something more amusing…like some mid-winter yard […]

So recently I was informed that I’ve got what the old timers used to refer to as “The Sugar Diabetes”. As a result, in an effort to cut down on my carbs, or as we call them in our house carbonhydrates…because it is fun…I have totally eliminated white bread and other white flour products from […]

It was 2:am and I was sleeping soundly. A noise from the kitchen startled me. I sat up and listened, and heard items falling on the floor. What the heck is going on? My wife says it is probably just one of the cats. I run through the list of things in the kitchen that […]

I believe that¬†everybody should get up close and personal with their food at least once. It is something I have always tried to teach my son. We have grown food in a garden and collected eggs from our hens, and we have caught fish.               Most recently, my son […]

Stetson man missing…Last seen being carried away in a cloud of blackflies.

A 46-year-old Stetson man is missing this morning, after going outside to do some yard work. His wife says he had been outside for just a few minutes, when she heard him muttering, and cursing, followed by a cry of surprise. She stepped out onto the porch, and saw him swatting at a large cloud […]

Got a freezer full of fish from last week’s ice fishing trip? You may be breaking the law!

When did hunting and fishing stop being a good way to feed your family? On a facebook forum, a member discussed how he liked to trade his daily catch for Chinese food from one of his favorite restaurants. Many of us knew this was not a good thing to be posting publicly, because by saying […]

How’s this for Karma…Monday I caught my first trout through the ice, and it was the biggest trout I ever caught. I am 46 years old. I gave it to an old lady. I figured there are more opportunities in my life to have trout. Tuesday, I caught 2 more large brook trout. A guy […]
