I still don't know why the Chinese place calls it a "poo poo platter".

Selective trout. Swisher and Edwards, 1972. A dramatically new and scientific approach to trout fishing in Eastern and Western rivers.

So I got a trout stocked lake, but the trout are done at 75 degrees. The lake at deepest point is 6 ft deep. The trout sink and die, I believe. The bass in this lake are "catch and release" as are the the other naturals, cat fish, perch whatever.
So I am looking for common diet of trout and bass.
So far craw dads, minnows and worms and frogs and mouse and big buggy sh$&t that might land on the water, bees, beetles, crane flies.
Looking to minimize my gear. Prolly only gonna be able to bank fish off the lake, unless I get driving privileges back.
I can make most. Big surprise was craw dad. I make a beauty out of Hungarian partridge and chenille.

I'm actually thinking of writing a book. Forget blogs. They're admissible in court. If somebody who everybody thought was dead could finally write a sequel to "To Kill A Mockingbird" then why can't I? My senior year high school English teacher said I showed promise, even if I could never meet a deadline.

I need some inspiration though. My favorites are a little weird. In the meantime, I have some crazy stories (some funny, some that will make you scratch your head) I need to get off my chest that I need to get out after I change the names to protect the not-so-innocent.

...and no, I'm not looking to write a murder/mystery. I'm thinking of writing about personal growth but with irreverent humor.

I sense the title of your book to be the same as your location, Off the Deep End, after all your parenting adventures. :D Good luck on it if you decide to go for it.

LOL.

I was actually thinking of some stories from when before I was a kid. I'd actually like to write a book about bullying. I had a lot of first hand experience.

I also have a story about an old college roommate who learned the hard way about dating a "clinger." He was over 21 and she was not, so when his friends came from home to visit and he went on a Bar Tour she got vindictive. She "seduced" our next door neighbor but kept stringing my roommate along. Our neighbor was the creepy Hugh Heffner wannabe type who would pursue anything with a heartbeat. He'd come over at bedtime wearing his bathrobe (no lie) to collect her for a booty call - then come back over and share all the sordid details afterwards. The funny part was that "she" crossed a line when Heff's friend joined them one evening. He actually used the line "I lost all respect for her." At the time I would just shake my head and say "I GOTTA write a book about this!"

Years later there was an SNL skit that summed it up perfectly:
