Around here folks would go out in the spring and gig suckers, when they were going up the creeks to spawn. Never did hear of anyone trying to snare them. We're not all on the same page, as far as gigging fish. Above where I said that gigging is mo

When I was a kid Dad told me they used to fish the creek across from their house. He said they would snare the fish. I thought he was kidding me. This is the first I have heard of snaring fish since then. That's been around 60 years ago. just

Geez! Minus 34*C is close to our minus 30*F. That's when everything shuts down. Schools, shopping centers, cars. How far north are you in QC? The middle of Wisconsin is at the 45* 00" latitude. I see where the top of Maine is around 49* 00"

Yesterday it was almost 60 F here. The fields were green again, people were happy and life was good. Today, it is 13 F with about 14" of snow, everything is white, people are miserable and life is still good- as long as you find something to p
