    Must be some bad cabin fever around here. After Tony mentioned the guy jumping in the Grand near Lyons the other day, another guy took a dip in the Maple in Ovid. I heard on the news he was stopped by police and he jumped in. Last I knew they were still looking for him.

    Might need to find different waters to fish for awhile. Sounds like these areas are getting saturated with guys chummin'.:roll_eyes:

    I watched a travelogue about Alaska over the weekend. They talked to a guy who takes folks to look at glaciers in small boats. He said that on a training exercise, he went overboard in street clothes, and was unable to climb in the boat after just 15 seconds.
    Makes you want to bring a pee bucket for spring fishing, eh?

    Are you insinuating that I am unable to relieve myself off the bow of an unstable boat anchored sideways in the current, in the dark, in the rain, without spilling my jambalaya? I beg to differ! Though I cannot recall your exact words, I do remember you being inspired.....

    I remember that well, and if you thought I was inspired because you risked ruining your whole fishing trip by performing a dangerous, foolhardy, and most of all unneccessary balancing act- then you totally misinterpreted my comment!
    At least the water was in the 70's that night, so if you had taken a swim, we could have continued fishing and picked you up downstream somewhere...
    or perhaps I could have snagged the back of your rain jacket with a circle hook and reeled you in! lol...

    I don't know about Tony but I, for one, was impressed. Especially after the "gentle" rocking of the boat by his fellow boat mate. I think he's insinuating that a Romex jockey shouldn't be performing tricks commonly seen in the flying Wallendas circus act. Then again, when you tightwalked the anchor rope...

    If only I had been exposed to the virtues of the "pee bucket" earlier in my fishing education, I would not find myself under such scorn and derision. I am taking all of this in the best possible way I assure you. :embarassed:

    Sticks and Stones fellas...

    Someone just told me that the remains of one of the fugitives has been recovered from the Grand River near Ionia.
    Has anyone else heard this?

    One down, one to go- or was the other "jumper" in a different river system?
