Would you consider selecting a High Intensity contributor as a fishing partner. Personally, I would have to think about that a long time due to the problems that could arise from fishing with one of those folks (this is bad, grouping them together with the word folks). Before you could even get on the water, I'm sure you would have to have a lengthly discussion about where the boat came from (N.S.E. or W), then whether or not the boat company ever received any funding from the Gov., had one of their people in management been charged for donating too much money to a political party. Did they have a proper mix of all races, were any of the parts on the boat from Mexico or some other place outside the USA and so on. I'm pretty sure this process would take weeks or not months. Same goes for the boat trailer, sonar, GPS, life jackets, bow and stern lights, etc. Finally, we arrive at the boat dock. Now what, we most likely will have to have a discussion about Mercury in the water and food chain. Who's fault is it and if I have informed the proper officials about it and if not, why not. Was the lake built with gov. money and if so, who was the President at the time it was funded and so on. We (my HI partner and myself) leave the dock and arrive at our fishing hole and then the fun begins. First we have to have a long conversation about where the gear (rods, reels, line, hook, dip net, landing net, etc), was made and all the other question similar to those about the boat. Time passes and now we are ready to bait up and get to some fishing. Bull, here we go again, where did the bait come from, what do you know about thier operations, do they hire minorities and do they conform to OSHA, etc. If you used a gill net or other type of devices to catch the bait did it conform to all reg's. More time passes and we are ready now, hopefully, to bait up and fish. When I get out a live bait and get ready to put a hook in it, the sh_t hits the fan. Don't you know that the bait can feel pain from that hook in its mouth/tail or if I cut it up for cut bait, HI says. Nope, I say, and he says, can you prove that? Nope I say again, that is what I have always been told. HI says, that is what is wrong with your group (whatever group that is), you believe everything they tell you. We finally get our baits in the water and guess what, the sun is setting and it is time to go home! PS, now the final blow is a PM or open post asking me why I did not use spell check or something about my sentence structure or grammar.
