    Detroit River and L Erie and St. Clair are more for the bass, perch, pickerel, and smaller fish like crappie, but also, as I said previously, great for Muskie. Tons of catfish too, and it's rare you go without catching a sheephead (freshwater drum) when using worms as bait.

    Here is an example (from local paper March 2016) on what I mean about this area thriving for perch/pickerel: http://windsorstar.com/news/local-ne...up-for-walleye
    The committee recommended the catch limit for yellow perch drop from 10.528 million pounds in Lake Erie last year to 9.208 million pounds for 2016. The quotas are for sport fishing on both sides of the border and the Ontario-based commercial fishing industry. Under a formula, Ontario’s allowable perch catch will be 4.385 million pounds which is more than the four individual quotas for the U.S. areas of the lake.

    The walleye catch limits are done in number of fish not pounds.

    The recommended total allowable catch is 4.937 million walleye for 2016 compared to last year’s limit of 4.114 million fish. Tiessen said once it is figured out by pound it is about an eight per cent increase.

    That's a lot of fish!!!!!! Plus it's a sustainable number.
    Nothing wrong with reeling in some cats and drum though, they put up a good little fight. I guess not much for eating, but I don't eat much of what comes out of the rivers around here anyway.

    Martin, we got about 1/4" of freezing rain over night. Slid all the way down my driveway to the sidewalk and couldn't get back to the garage without going through the snow on the lawn. I've never experience freezing rain before this year so it's been interesting.

    Just noticed your earlier question. We got maybe a 1/8th inch ice this time. The good news was that for us it was quickly followed by warming temperatures and everything is clearing up. I have dealt with freezing rain enough to know to be very careful in it. Walking outside in this one was aided by the snow pack. It allowed me to step in the snow and break through the ice. I would not want to be in Hood River!

    Ahh...the good ol' can't walk up my driveway routine! Been there a few times. We get them maybe once a year where I am, but usually avoid the major ice - seems like the ice storms stay south of me.

    I better appreciate those news stories that show the cars slide, seemingly in slow motion, down the road bumping into each other. That's how I felt on the driveway, just slowly sliding and nothing to stop it until the concrete leveled off.

    Today is Bell Let's Talk day here in Canada. http://letstalk.bell.ca/en/

    I know I brought this up last year, and want to thank everybody for their support. It's an initiative to help end the stigma of mental health issues here in Canada. Any social media interactions (Twitter, Instagram, etc.) using #BellLetsTalk

    So...I'm an idiot and left a copy of my limited edition of Chiliad: A Meditation by Clive Barker on the floor in my study. It's just me and my wife and it was resting nicely in front of my bookshelf on the carpet. It's not something I normally do, but didn't think there was much harm in it.

    Well, one of my dogs decided that it was upset or territorial or something and...peed all over it.

    It's my stupid fault for leaving it on the floor, but, man, that made me an unhappy camper.

    Did they say "today"? I saw a tweet, but it did not say when specifically.

    They do not say a day. I also took it as more a Big Richard Chizmar announcement rather than a Cemetery Dance announcement.

    Samhain Publishing is closing at the end of February. It's too bad--I've a bunch of great books from them and without their sales I may never have read any Hunter Shea, Maynard (&) Sims or Stephen Laws.

    If anyone purchased ebooks it'd be a good time to make sure you still have your copies before their servers go dark.

    I just posted this on the RVA Horror Book Club Facebook page;
    " Good Day all and Sundry, I would like to invite members of the RVA Horror Club to visit the Cemetery Dance Forum http://www.cemeterydance.com/ Cemetery Dance Publications is a specialty publisher that puts out some Terrorific Horror/Fantastical Fiction. October Dreams (2000) is one of my all-time favorite Halloween anthologies. The forum is super laid back and the denizens that frequent it are very friendly. Writers, readers, reviewers, bloggers and collectors mix and mangle, a good time is had by all. The forum is a great place to keep up with new releases from lots of publishers and it’s also a great place to pick up deals, members buy, sell and trade all the time. I just picked up a slightly dinged copy of Vampyricon Trilogy: The Definitive Special Edition by Douglas Clegg for a really nice price. Many of us also found out that Subterranean press is releasing a new edition of Robert McCammon’s classic Swan Song. And finally it’s a good way to keep up with what’s going on across the pond with PS Publishing and other UK publishers because we have more than a few Brits show up. So, stop by and poke around, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. "
    Maybe we'll see some new fonts LOL!
