Welcome to My Fishing Pals. Glad to have you aboard!
Getting skunked is no fun, eh? The forum is pretty dead right now on account of the holiday. Come on back tomoorow and see what gets posted to all the lakes you are enquiring about. We'll see if we can't get you on to some fish.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
