Now we know why today's limit is 5!!!
Some good 'eatin' hanging there.
I'm guessing that Dupont spinners are the same as what we call up here CIL hooks.
Fishing Rods?.....We don't need no stinking fishing rods!!!
Here's the box "Dupont Spinners" come in.
Anyone notice how comfortable the man in bibs looks? Bud.
That boat and trailer would have sure been nice taggin' along behind my T.
Ken, or anyone...
I have known of the Dupont Spinners, what does CIL hooks mean? Never heard that one!
Over here we called them "Ministry of Works Minnows", I've seen them used once.
No i sure don't know but i remember seeing/hearing the Dupont Warbler's being used!! I haven't had any dynamite around since 1992! Bud.
No dynamite...? That's probably a good thing...!
How was the fishing trip, Dear?
Oh, we had a bang up good time!
As a young lad I went to an auction with my dad. It was a large farm auction with lots of buildings and sheds. Wondering through one I saw a couple dingy, aged boxes with what I first thought were railroad flares. Looking closer I saw some of the sticks were damp and sticky. Some where I had read about dynamite and the danger of it leaking. No one else was paying any attention so I told my dad, he told the auctioneer and we shortly left. This would have been in the early 50s. Never heard anything further so I guess it was taken care of.
I sold a small pole barn at my farm sale and the fellow tearing it down came to me all scared and said there were 2 cases of jucy dynamite in the loft!! He would not handle it so i threw it stick by stick in the field and ran over it with the big dozer! After i got equipment there was no need of dynamite! I used to enjoy using dynamite because it was a job you did right or leave it alone! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
A friend or mine,as a younger lad,needed a faster easier way to fish.He heard that shocking fish up was the way to go.After a couple of failed tries,he found another friend that was using a small crank generator,yeah that's the ticket.So he found his grandma's crank phone in the basement and proceeded to smash it to bits taking the gen set out of it.His grandma was p.o.ed for a really long time.
