Outdoors Amendment

5 posts in this topic

What does everyone think about the bill that is being considered to add an ammendment to the state constituton funding the outdoors and the arts? I personally am opposed to it because they just had to tack on the arts portion of it. It is frustrating that the arts people had to attach their agenda to a bill that has been worked on by a lot of sportman groups and friends of the outdoors. I would really like to see the so called arts people stand on their own two feet and do their own work. This is a classic example of the work of the many benefiting the few. Everyone benefits from preserving the outdoors while significantly fewer folks benefit from the arts.

Ditto! I think you nailed it, Slip_Sinker.

I also agree with your thinking, but unfortunately I do not think that the "arts" people plan to detatch themselves from what they see as a "sure thing" bill! frown.gif

I am sick and tired of the way our legislatures add all of these "tag ons" to bills that should be passed. This is common practice in both the house and senate. This is the only way that many of these groups would ever recieve the funding that they do. I am in no way "anti-arts" but I just don't think that these two things should be tied together.

Just my two cents!

There is a move to boycott your area for tourism since your state senator voted to kill the amendment. Clean water=tourism. This is becoming big.

      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!
