Presidential Mallard

2 posts in this topic

From the Sunday Telegraph

"SECURITY is tight in front of the White House for a new resident - a duck sitting on nine eggs she laid at the foot of a sapling last week.

The mallard hen chose for her nest a heap of fresh mulch on the footpath outside the heavily guarded entrance of the Treasury Department, next door to the presidential residence.

Secret service officers have put up metal stanchions around the tree to shield the incubating bird from passers-by.

The fowl's reputation has grown, and it was featured on a national morning television show on Friday.

Treasury staff have dubbed the bird "T-bill", "Duck Cheney" and "Quacks Reform", Treasury spokesman Rob Nichols said.

The duck has been provided with a water bowl and seems oblivious to all the attention.

The eggs are expected to hatch the last week of April, at which time the duck will be moved nearer water."

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
