First things first.
It was cold, windy, the sky was threatening all day yesterday. Fishing is largely a matter of timing. Tuesday, the crappie bite was hot. Thursday, nobody on the lake caught anything. We found some small fish, my friend got one nice crappie and I got a bluegill about 10″, which is big for this species. It was a female and she was pre-spawn, so she was full of eggs. My friend took one picture of me with it and I released her. We call it CPR: catch, photo and release. This lake gets a lot of pressure and when too many mature fish are taken, the population declines. People like me want to keep the sport healthy for our grandchildren. We are conservationists, not terrorists.
Now for the boring crap.
Much has been made of the first quarter GDP being .07%. The media, of course is blaming it all on Trump. This, of course, is bogus. For 8 agonizing years, the GDP under the Magic Negro didn’t top 3%, the worst record of economic growth in our history, including The Great Depression.

Trump’s loyal voters aren’t buying ‘shameful’ media spin: Report
“Employing a blitzkrieg-style deluge of misleading headlines, both online and in print, coupled with a heavy diet of 89 percent negative broadcast network news coverage of Trump, the groupthink of the liberal media bubble has tried mightily to portray President Trump’s first 100 days in office as the worst political disaster of the last half century,” Mr. O’Connell tells The Washington Times.
“How else are we to explain the fact that President Trump has the lowest approval rating since 1945, yet his supporters express little-to-no buyer’s remorse and that if the 2016 presidential election were held today, Trump would win the popular vote over Hillary Clinton, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll?” he continued.
