Cast Your Lines! It’s Fishing Time!

Luke_fish

Spring means that everyone, young and old, can take advantage of lake fishing. You will find many pieces of good fishing advise on our website including our own Fishing Calendar for best days and times. There is something special about catching “the big one.”

Last week, a friend and his son, Luke, went out for a quick fish one evening and pulled in a 20” wide mouth bass. With waters still ice cold here, I am told that bass are particularly active. This was a catch and release, so Luke can get him again when he is 22” or larger.

Luke also plays hockey. So, I asked the obvious question: “If you could be the greatest hockey player of all time or the greatest fisherman, which would you choose?” Without hesitation, he said, “A fisherman, of course.” Smart boy.

If your children or grandchildren catch a nice fish, send the photo to us via our Facebook or Twitter pages. Tell us a whopper – share what state and lake, and any other specifics you feel comfortable divulging. Bragging goes with the sport!

In the meantime, enjoy this article about how the Hook Kids on Fishing!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
