To Do or Not To Do?

As the dollar buys less and less today, I am not sure about the decisions our government is trying to make. As I mentioned somewhere earlier, they keep trying to reward for bad behavior. Right now the three US automakers are on the hot seat, trying very hard to justify their case! They are going to sell their private jets and receive only $1 for salaries in order to appease the decision makers. I actually think these steps have been part of their appeasement plan all along. I think they purposely flew in their jets to make an issue out of them and then show their willingness to get rid of them! This actually for two weeks distracted the decision makers and media from the actual problem. I remember quite well when GM CEO, a year or so ago, when taking his position, promised the end to the production of Hummer right away. Now we know that he lied and all her was trying to do was to help increase the GM stock price. I think since they are in bed with some of the politicians as well as the Big Oil, they really are not willing to implement any plan in this country. I really think all we see is a show down for uninformed and careless US tax payer to justify the case. I am really puzzled on why did they not play the same game plan,  and put the financial CEO’s on the hot seat? Why did they get the money so easy? Why isn’t there any explanation of what they have done with the money? The answer is easy! Why would one want to ask themselves about their doings? Get it? Why are we afraid to put the President on the hot seat? Why is he not sacrificing his salary for a lousy job? If we really had a Democratic system, then this would be possible. In a dictatorship and fascism system, the leaders get away with things and the people are afraid to say anything. In Far East, few days ago people got on the street and demanded their Prime Minister, the actual leader, to step down for mismanagement and he did. But here they constantly tell us we are good in effort to satisfy us like little kids and surely we are falling for it.
In the auto makers case, if we take the number of shares that GM has and multiply by the share price we come up to about 3 billion dollars, not mentioning the 44 billion dollars outstanding debt they have, they are asking for 16 billion dollars!!! Can WE get a home loan for $160,000 if our collateral is only $3000? Surely not… Here is some of ideas about this issue:

Give them the money, but all the CEOs and top management should get fired. They should have definitive plan for building better vehicles in this country like they are doing abroad.

Give the Money to the Toyota’s, Honda’s, and such and demand the same. They WILL deliver FASTER.
DO NOTHING and let them fail. Sure there will job losses, but everybody will learn from it.

Now what do you think should be done?

Fishing Report


The lake is approximately two feet above winter pool and milky. Water temperatures are in the 40’s and fishing has been difficult because of ice. Bass are in about 10-20 feet of water. Crappie have been hitting minnows around fish attractors. Catfish have been caught on live bait. For more information call Corps of Engineers at 304-853-2398.

The lake is at summer pool and cloudy. Water temperatures are in the 40’s and fishing is good. Bass are in about 10 feet of water. Crappie and bluegill are hitting minnows around fish attractors. Anglers are reporting some nice channel catfish being caught over the last few weeks. A few trout have also been caught.

The lake is at winter pool and cloudy. Surface temperature is in the 40’s and fishing is fair. Bass are in about 10-20 feet of water. Reports of a few musky being caught this week trolling. Crappie and bluegill have been hitting live bait and jigs. For more information contact Corps of Engineers at 304-269-7463.

The lake is one foot above winter pool and milky. Water temperatures are in the 40’s and fishing is fair. Bass have been in 10-20 feet of water. Crappie have been hitting minnows around beaver huts and blown down trees. Boat launching at Bee run and behind the dam only. Trout were stocked in the tailwaters on October 22. For daily information call Corps of Engineers at 304-765-2705.

Now is the time to be thinking about combining fishing with your up coming deer hunting trip. The West-Central part of West Virginia offers a variety of opportunities for this combination. Musky streams are expected to be fishable this weekend and excellent musky populations can be found in the following waters: The Little Kanawha River, The Hughes River and its major Forks, Middle Island Creek, and Mill and Sandy Creeks in Jackson County. Fall musky anglers use large crank baits or jerk baits, and riffle areas are hot spots.

Anglers seeking bass after the hunt also have many choices of water to consider. Conaway Run Lake in Tyler County, North Bend, Tracy, and Pennsboro lakes in Ritchie County, Mountwood Lake in Wood County, Charles Fork Lake in Roane County, and Elk Fork, Woodrum, and O’Brien lakes in Jackson County all have excellent largemouth bass populations. Slowly fished bass lures are the baits of choice this time of the year.

Deer hunters along the Ohio River also have great opportunities for the combination. The fall is an excellent time to fish Ohio River Tail-waters. Anglers fishing below the Belleville and Willow Island dams are catching sauger, walleye, hybrid striped bass, and a few other species. Lead headed jigs with twister tails (white or chartreuses), which are fished along the bottom, are the lure of choice. Clever anglers are tipping their jig hooks with minnows or shad. Small suspending Rapala’s (silver with a blue back) also work quite well. Best spots to fish these areas include eddies and back-current sections, and anywhere that river flows are unusual.
