After days of cold/rain/drizzle and clouds, the sun popped out and we
motored up to the lake. Cold front roared through overnight and so we
had headwinds of 25+ on the way up. Stopped for a propane fill
($1.99/gal) and gas ($2.77/gal). Dumped the sewer and filled with
water, bought a fishing license and still got here shortly after 11:00.
58 degrees and breezy here on the bluff overlooking the lake but the
view is great. Plugged in the Directv and had an instant picture. No
more looking for that hole in the leaf canopy. Verizon has 3 of 4 bars
and I can certainly live with that.
Had a fat pork chop for lunch, marinated in pineapple juice and
habanero jelly. Delicious.
Now for a short snooze and I will be ready to tackle various chores.
The fishing opener (one of the most important dates in Minnesota) is
tomorrow. The goddam fishing rules now run 80 pages and take a lawyer
to clarify. Long lists of lakes where you can only keep runt fish and
anything else has to be tossed back.
A new feature: A "conservation" license at the bargain price of $11
instead of $17. You can only catch half of the usual limit. However
where the limit is 3 fish (like Northern Pike) you can only keep 1
fish. I'm sure the Crappie Cops will be busy trying to enforce that one.
I bought a fishing license in MT a few years back. There you had to buy
a "conservation" license. All it permitted you to do was to purchase a
hunting or fishing license! I think the rule book there was well over 80
pages. You had to know what river you were on and where you were on that
river so you could look up the rules where you were fishing. Fortunately
the rules only changed where a highway bridge crossed the river, so you
could tell where the rules changed. Oh, if you wanted to fish in lakes,
that required an additional permit. For us out of state folks the
conservation license, fishing license and the lake permit added up to
Been there, done that. Some years I bought non-resident fishing licenses in 7 states.
If you fish the Colorado rive between AZ & CA, both sides want money and the license isn't good in the rest of AZ.
