    Default Bow Riding

    There have been several deaths here in Arizona this year due to people "bow riding" while traveling at speed. These people have been thrown or fallen overboard, gone under the boat, and been struck by the propeller. Horrific injuries, some decapitated! Never ride on the bow of a boat traveling faster than no wake speed!! Besides, it is illegal, and even if no one is hurt or injured, a hefty fine will be levied against the boat operator if this is seen by law enforcement.

    Nice Safety Tip. Glad you put this up.
    There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

    Even if you've been fishing for three hours and haven't gotten anything except poison ivy and sunburn, you're still better off than the worm.

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.

    I have seen some of those horrific injuries in my time, and they all could have been avoided
