Still Breathing

I see where I haven't posted anything since Thursday evening. And I bet you didn't even miss me!

Over this last long weekend, there was some dolt who decided to go swimming in a lake here in North Carolina. Problem was, there were big signs all around the lake saying that swimming was prohibited. Bigger problem was that this particular lake was loaded with alligators. Some folks managed to fish him out so that he only had bites on his arm and chest, but if it would have been me there I would have been cheering for the gator. We need more fuckwits like that to help clean out the shallow end of the gene pool.

Like the idiots who were in Florida right by a memorial to the 14 year old girl who was taken by a shark. What were these dickheads doing? They were in the water - in the middle of a run of bait fish. Now, how bright do you have to be to see where this could lead? Like the boy who was about 100 yards off shore fishing in waist deep water - with a pocket full of chum. Why not just put up a sign for the predators saying dinner's ready?

I have a feeling that a lot of this type of stupidity is due to our wonderful culture. Things only go wrong for someone else, and all the animals out in the wild are supposed to be Disney-like safe and pettable. Anyway, if things don't go perfectly for today's folks, there's always someone to be sued, right?

Humans are small, slow, weak animals. Our only advantage over most wild critters is the size of our brains, but only if that brain gets used. When going swimming in the ocean, the moment your foot hits the water you just went to the bottom of the food chain. Our big brains, along with that opposable thumb thing we have, is only worthwhile if we have a suitable weapon and are prepared to use it.

Otherwise we're just mobile protein.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
