Bumper Stickers...

21 posts in this topic

Today on my way home from work, I saw what was quite possibly the most humble bumper sticker ever. The driver was an older gentleman, probably in the 60-70 range, with an old fisherman's cap on. He was driving a beat up old chevy truck from the early eighties, rust everywhere, bumpers crooked and bent up, cracked glass, and loud busted up dual exhaust. I looked closely at the bumper sticker on the tailgate and started to read it. It said, "Don't mind my truck, my treasure is already in heaven." It brought on some pretty deep thoughts and instantly I started to remember times with lost loved ones. When he pulled into a turn lane I pulled up along side of him and gave him a friendly nod, and he reciprocated.

Has anyone else been effected in a similar way after seeing a bumper sticker?

I know this isn't along the lines of what your talking about an inspirational type bumper sticker, but heres my sticker that always left me wondering and thought it was dumb cause I didn't quite get it "If momma ain't happy,ain't nobody happy" I got married, had kids, I GET IT. Not inspirational but reality.

This one a buddy of mine had on his truck. He was from Cloquet.

If you object to logging...try using plastic toilet paper.

I always thought that was a pretty good one.

I saw one on a really old beat up piece of rolling heap. It said "And to think I started with nothing!" That made me laugh anyway.

Not inspirational either but made me chuckle. Good looking older pickup with a trailered boat went by the house the other day here in town while I was outside for a smoke. On the tailgate of the pickup there was a sticker: IF THIS WAS A F-22A RAPTOR, I WOULD ALREADY BE FISHING.

Could not argue with that one.

Reading that reminded me of one I saw up near Isabella grouse hunting one year.

-When there's no more toilet paper, you can wipe your a$$ with a spotted owl-

A bit hard-core and not very inspirational, but it made me chuckle.

I saw one on a car in St.Paul with reservation plates and a car load of Native Americans that said "Custer had it coming" I had to agree. I also had my own custom made sticker that reads "My son is 19, I now know why grizzly bears eat their young"

Being a teacher in the public schools, this bumper sticker probably shouldn't be on my truck....but hey, truth sometimes hurts.....it reads, "My lab is smarter than your honor student!!!"

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat
    • Sculpin
      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
