There are a few property owners and it seems to get more pressure every year. There is a wide variety of panfish, along with largemouth bass and northern pike.

Yeah..my computer at school does the same thing..honestly..it took me 15 minutes to post on my lunch break..

However,,I bought my wife this IPad..To my understanding.Macuntosh products have never had a virus,,this IPad I'm using is lightning fast..I love it..I can't post pics for some reason so I use my school Gateway to do that..

I love hearing from you MT...and please don't worry about the rod...having your support on here and being your friend mean
Ns more to me than 100 rods..I sincerely appreciate the introduction to the jig..that has increased my big bass ratio by 200 per cent..awesome lure.
