William's Blog...with a smile!


Minnesota Fishing Opener is Saturday.

Yes, the opener for game fish is this Saturday.

There have been many blogs on fishing and being ready.

But this one is for safety.

If you are fishing from a boat...WEAR THAT LIFE JACKET!!!

I have a friend a few years ago almost died when he fell overboard.

He was an excellent swimmer but he was floundering because of the clothing he had on.

He is lucky he was not alone and his partner through a life pillow to him and that gave the partner time to get to him.


Do your family a favor...WEAR THE LIFE JACKET!!!!!!

Important warning Bill, I grew up in the lake country of NW Wisconsin and was always saddened with how many people drowned every summer.

Great advice, William.  We've lost some young men this past year because they took the weather and the conditions too lightly and didn't have their life vests.

One way to bring sorrow to your family is to lose your life when it could have easily been saved.
