    You might sat it's mine. It's at Prairie Lake and built with our tax dollars. They actually used them for something can the average person can use. Has four spayers and a grinder and is lighted at night. Sure beats taking them home for a mess to clean up. Doesn't take long to clean fish when you have this kind of table and running water.

    Small pieces of beef liver and it was really working well. Stays on hook better but don't think it's as good as chicken liver. If they're there they will hit it but won't draw them as well as chicken liver. Have a good one.
