2nd Day of Fishing

Weather: Sunny so far but cool

Trail Conditions: OK to ride the grades, but stay off the trails for now

Still a bit cool out there.  High only to around 50.  Fishing reports were so so.  I talked to a few groups that did good, some that did ok and a few that said it sucked.  General consensus is the water is too cold.  To me that doesn’t make sense because last year the ice was still on the Lake May 14th.  It should have been colder last year, but what the hell do I know, I don’t fish.  I don’t even like fish.  Tuna with lots of Miracle Whip is about as far as I go, well that is not totally true, I have munched on some fresh walleye that was just cooked and that is pretty good stuff, I just wouldn’t order it if I was out for a meal.  I remember eating some of my Dad’s fish he cooked and saying, “this is good, it doesn’t taste like fish.” To which he would reply “That’s what good fish is supposed to taste like.”


The old Indian chief sat in his home on the reservation, smoking his ceremonial pipe, eyeing the two U.S. government officials sent to interview him. “Chief Two Eagles,” one official began, “you have observed the white man for many years. You have seen all his progress and all his problems.” The chief nodded. The official continued, “What do you think of all the white man has done?”

The chief stared at the officials for more than a minute, and then calmly replied. “When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes. No debt. Plenty buffalo, plenty beaver. Women did most of the work. Medicine man free. Indian men hunted and fished all the time.”

The chief paused, then added, “Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.”
