    Heard an intersting tidbit today at work and wondered if anybody has heard or witnessed this. It was said of all boats at boat docks, the ones with mercury outboards hold the fish. He said that he fished all the boats at docks and the ones with mercury's is the ones where he catches the crappie and bass from. Now, when he fishes them, he only fishes mercury's. His dad has noticed the same thing and fishes the same way. He named two dif. lakes, loramie and rocky fork. This comes from a good fisherman and can't see him telling me a story like that without it having some truth to it. Interested to hear some feed back on this one.
