    Well, they did allow fisher in, but it was no bait, all flies and lures.
    After 9-11, when my fishing partner and I got thrown out, and almost shot by the Sultan Police, I have not been back. Last I heard is that the road was in trouble from weather, but that was posted some time ago. Beautiful lake to fish. Nice fish. What is not to like?
    Please don't pee in the lake.

    Urine also fights toenail fungus. Also- if you're planning on pee'ing in the lake you should think ahead and eat some asparagus before you hit the water. The strong concetration of asparagusic acid in the urine is not only odiferus but also a powerful attractant for fishes.

    Codioos... good tip! Olive... I also fish a city water supply reservoir with the same regulations as the one you fish so I can relate to the water quality concern... but honestly, human pee is not going to kill anyone drinking the water. It is sterile and not only works to heal fungus and athlete's foot but also to neutralize stings from some marine animals .

    Everyone should carry a bottle of pee with them... just in case you don't need to go when you need to :D

    My uncle told me when I was about 4 that if I wanted to be a better swimmer I had to eat fish tales. I thought he knew everything, and I ate every fish tale I could get for years.

    When I was 13 he told me about masturbating. He told me it was fun but not to do it too much, because you could only do it 25 times and then it wouldn't work any more. 3 hours later I finally figured out how full of shit my uncle was.

    Needless to say, I never ate another fish tale.

    I don't know if it has any benefits; but I'm pretty damn sure neither will hurt the shower.

    I think that the real question the fisherman here want to know is.. Is it more proper to pee on the forward stroke of your "cast", or the backwards one?

    Well, my eyes are not what they use to be, so I can't completely rule it out, but if it causes blindness it's a slow process and it definitely takes more than 25 times to go completely blind.

    Jerry: "What about you Kramer, do you pee in the shower?" Kramer: "I take baths."

    This thread is positive proof that the One Word Contest is not only insanely fun, but good therapy for some who are clearly near the precipice. :D

    Kramer like being in the shower so much that he prepared his meals there. He even installed a garbage disposal in the drain.:)

    I agree.
    I had a guy 20+ years ago come up to me at the boat launch and tell me he didn't like watching me piss in his lake. I asked him why he was looking at me? He said he couldn't believe i would be so rude to piss in the lake. I started laughing at him and he said he was serious. I told him i will take it one step further and be pissed( pun intended) if i notice him staring at me next time i am out here pissing in the lake. He told me he will just call the cops next time. Then i really laughed and he was so red faced he stomped away calling me a punk ass kid blah blah blah. He got back in his car and drove half way around the lake to his home on the water. . OH well, i dont eat lake fish, but if i did, they would be that much sweeter.:)

    This is nothing new. All hardcore cold water surfers know that you must pee in your suit whenever you go surfing, so that it will run down into your booties, preventing any fungal growth there. If you go surfing several times per week, the surf booties never get an opportunity to fully dry out, so they must be regularly doused, as a preventative measure.

    Weekend warriors may not be aware of this problem, nor its solution.
