Being a big online computer gamer.. I was very familiar with a quote.. and I changed the original quote from "base" to "bass"... Here's the skinny on the quote (from Wikipedia):

"All your base are belong to us" (often referred to as "All Your Base" or abbreviated AYBABTU, AYBAB2U, or simply AYB) is an Engrish phrase that sparked an Internet phenomenon in 2001 and 2002. The text is taken from the opening cut scene of the English version of the 1989 Japanese video game Zero Wing by Toaplan. While the translation was generally poor, this phrase stood out as particularly humorous. From mid-to-late 2000 many images were digitally altered so that the phrase was added in, either obviously or discreetly, led by the Something Awful Forums[1]. Some of these images were compiled with those created and posted to a forum thread on TribalWar.com by their members; one of whom, known only as "Bad_CRC", created the AYBABTU Flash animation that was widely downloaded and later featured on various online and televised news outlets.

A good snowmobiling friend of mine use to say

"It snows everyday in heaven" - Doug Dinger #73

I believe its written that way on his headstone. He passed away in a snowmobiling accident 3 years back.

Something I've had to say to my kids many many times... and heard from my Dad & Grandpa when I was young. Kind of explains itself after that... cool.gif

A phrase an old coworker used to use, along the lines of "you know what I'm saying?". Still gets a pause in a conversation from someone who has never heard it before. Previous origins unknown, but I'd love to hear any opinions.

And, of course, the old Garage Logic "Good Luck!".

catching vs. fishing.

well my dad always had said that "you go out to fish, not to catch." there are to many that go out to catch, not to fish. fishing brings us closer to our being. he also said that he has been told that for every hour you spend fishing. adds an hour to the end of your life. so if you go out fishing you will never come home dissapointed. and if you just go out to catch, you may often come home dissapointed. ... paul

The first time I heard the quote on my signature was from an 80+ yr old guy that I used to fish with years ago.

I am very insecure about my weight when I put waders on and I hate it when other hunters stare and whisper things behind my back.

I just want to look my best out in the slough.

Well, it's a line in a movie that has always cracked me up. More importantly, it also the name of my ice shack on Mille Lacs.

A saying I find myself telling buddies who just casually fish, then sit, then maybe fish, then talk my ear off. So "Shut up and fish!"

My younger brother is notorious for hooking into a good fish and yelling "Got one!" only to discover a few seconds later the fish has broken his line or somehow managed to get off, which I then hear him say in a very frusterated tone...."Had one." It cracks me up cause it happens at least once everytime we're on the water together.

Everytime I USE to say things, I would say "And there you go" as I was trying to prove my correct point. I got some ribbing about this phrase so I hardly use it anymore, but it comes out time to time. When I do use it, I do hear about it grin.gif

I had to explain mine a little as a lot of people don't understand it. It's "shorthand".

See the itty bitty ducks?

Them are no ducks.

Oh yes they are, see the itty bitty wings?

While I'll be, them are ducks!

My 5th grade teacher wrote it on the board and no one got it til he explained it. I always remembered it after that. He was a Navy man and very strict. I got in a lot of trouble in his class but looking back, he was the best teacher I had. He also gave us a "test" that tested how well we read directions. The first line was "Fill in your name and do not write anything below." Or something like that. Needless to say, I filled in the entire page. It was like a survey or something from what I remember. I wish I could find it online, but I've tried to no avail.

Remember when the depth finder was called Grandpa?

saw this on a sign at the VRC near Vermillion, and it just kinda stuck in my mind. I was very close with my grandfather and was always amazed at how he was able to do just about everything so it fit him.

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
