  2. Looking forward to the website Linda. I used to get a charge out of teasing your Dad about what the best erie lure was for walleye. Of course you know which one he always picked. Really miss the gentle digs we used to give one another. I think I first met your dad when I was about seven. I can remember him netting his own minnows up at erie and bringing them down here to sell in the shop you are running now. So you know I am no spring chicken myself. Best of luck to ya.

    Be sure to post the link on the site and I'll put it in my favorites. I'm about 1 and 1/2 hours from 'squito and have ice fished it a couple of times. If I have up to date reports, I would be more inclined to fish it more. (I'll also need bait!! :D )

    By the way, I think it is awesome that your dad invented the Erie Dearie. Caught tons of walleye on them bad boys as I'm sure everyone else has also!!

    Take Care!
    Sam :cool:
  4. CYA soon... Always stop by when your open just to see what is hitting what and where...
  5. papaperch, sounds like you knew my dad well. it will be 8 years ago in june that he past away. we all sure miss him. i wish he was here now to help me deal with this new park pride pass issue. i know he would have known how to fight it. it is really going to hurt our businesss, because we lease from the division of parks and recreation. everythng 20 feet west of our store belongs to the state. now if someone rents a boat--they have to pay an extra $5.00 to get to it. and those that launch from here
    have to pay the launching fee plus the $5.00 to get to the ramp. it's not going to be fun trying to explain this to our customers,and i'm sure we will lose some customers.
    and i'm very upset over this.
    i did go to columbus to testify a the hearing. and it looks like our hands are tied.
    i was told if i didn't agree with their plan i could drop my lease and they could always chain it off. at that point--. i shut up.
  6. Linda , if I remember right I believe my dad worked with your dad at mill before he started bait shop. I remember we always stopped there to get the lake shiners as bait. My dad always preferred them to fat heads. It was always THE place to stop to get the latest info on the CROSSWAY fishing situation. My dad was an avid angler and we went at least 2 - 4 times a week. This was shortly after you dad opened the shop. I remained a regular customer until the shop was run by someone that was not a member of your family.

    I returned when your dad resumed control of the operation. I dont think your dad ever knew my name but he sure loved to cross horns with me on fishing. I started out as a " If it aint a bass it aint really a fish " fisherman. I gradually became a panfish pursuer. Your dad was a " If it aint a walleye it aint really a fish" and he never did change far as I know.

    On the park pride pass issue , you will find some staunch allies here. Clyde aka "trkyhtr" has been on top of this from the getgo. It has its share of supporters here too but only because they happen to believe the politicians rhetoric. I offered to go to work for any of the supporters of this and deliver the same job performance these politicians have given us. It may sound awful corny but the politicians are our employees. We hire them when we VOTE for them. I am so sorry that this issue has the potential to affect your effort to continue your familys heritage. I offer you the 101's screaming eagles motto " Pity the poor B******S , they got us surrounded, "adopted after the seige of Bastonge during WWII. Take care.

    Nothin like live bait and ladies :D

    KSUFLASH respect our rivers please

    There is nothing like waking up early in the morning, making the trip up to Mosquito, stopping at the baitshop, and having a warm welcome from the young ladies at the store. I always leave the bait store in a good mood with hopes of having a good day.

    Anything I could ever need to fish Mosquito is in your store and then some. I especially like the the boat plug supply you have, as we all know I sure do have problems with remembering everything for my boat.

    Too all the ladies, your smile makes a differance too some of us as we are barley awake.

    Lets get the fish on!!!!!!

  15. Ksuflash...thanks For Reminding Me i Forgot To Order My Boat Plugs This Year. I'll Have A Good Supply Of Them When I Get Them. And Thanks For Everything Else You Said. Linda
