Especially if you are trying to catch crappie for consumption? Can't be any worse than going to the grocery store.

Our private lake management shut down all boating. That lasted about 30 minutes. There were completely blasted by residents and even had the county Judge on their ass.

It's not actually. I had a friend take his kayak out yesterday and was basically chewed out by a woman at the gas station because he wasn't "staying home".

So with abbots order is it fine for me to head to the lake and fish?

I troll for them in the summer with deep diving crankbaits (bandit 200's mostly). I have a pedal kayak so I'll run two rods out the back and pedal around till I find them.

Recreation is essential for your emotional and psychological health. So yes, essential.

To me, this one is less about essential and non-essential.The government has done a really ****ty job with the designations and half of them make no sense or are blatant pandering.

To me, this falls under the why the **** do you care if I'm out fishing on my boat with my kids instead of locked in my house with my kids.

Not sure if serious but I'll play along.

Yes, it's fine.

Your friend should have told that lady at the gas station to '**** off and mind her own damn business."

I've taken my boys fishing and another poster on here whom I fish & hunt with during normal times has taken his boy multiple times.

I asked about this last week here. I think restrictions might have increased but I'm still planning on taking the kids out fishing Sunday on my day off. Kids caught a lot of fish and I think being at home is driving them nuts. They seemed to enjoy themselves a lot more than usual.

If I was any good at posting pictures I would post a copy of the executive order or whatever it's called. It specifically states fishing & hunting are essential activities. I hear some cities are ignoring that & "closing" lakes & other bodies of water under their control.

My folks do and I grew up out there, but I build houses and sell real estate out there now. Plan to move out there as soon as I finish remodeling my current house and sell it.

I have been out on the water with my daughter probably half a dozen times in the last 3 weeks.

Anyone who tells me I can't government or otherwise can go F themselves.

Don't know if fishing is, but golf definitely is! Just drive by the campus course if you aren't sure. One player to a cart all over the course. I actually played last Sunday at Pecan Lakes. Was the busiest I've ever seen that course. Parking lot was completely full. We drove there in our own vehicles, walked the course, and avoided any hand slapping, high fiving or fist bumping. They put Styrofoam in the cups around the flag to within a couple of inches of the green level so you did not have to reach in too far to retrieve your ball and everyone was leaving the flag in place. Was nice to get the exercise and to get out in the open air for a few hours.

My CC is members only, one person to a cart (unless family), and no inside dining/drinking.

Port Aransas closed all the boat ramps to keep people away. I have a house there and they are basically trying to keep all non-residents out... even if you own a property there. This, despite the fact that they would not make it three months without tourism / second home money. I didn't hear them telling people to stay out after Harvey when they needed volunteers to help rebuild.

Just curious how a B-1 Bomber handles the no drinking part of that...

I noticed that while almost all state parks are open, mustang island is closed.

Hit Buchanan again on Wednesday and put three more limits of white bass in the boat in three hours. Also picked up one crappie and two stripers. Going to head back next week to try and target the crappie.
