    Fighting the elements could pay off

    No disrespect to any of you dear readers, but if you would care to participate in a micro-quiz, I would appreciate the effort.Now if you fall into the following category, please raise your hand to acknowledge my questions.• Are you one of those fair-weather fishermen who choose not to battle the elements long before the lakes go into their “hard water” stage? I seem to notice quite few hands raised.• Are you an angler who understands some of the best catches of the year can be had when the wind blows like a super-fast express train?• Are you the type who dresses in heavy clothing and are not afraid of tipping the boat and falling into the frigid water? • And are you the type of skeptic who turns his nose up at ice fishing? All right, drop your hands and please read on.I have had numerous arguments with acquaintances as to which fish species has the most flavor, be it in a frying pan or under the broiler.The more serious in our ranks would choose bluegills on the table hands down. Even the die-hard walleye devotee will reluctantly admit the mighty bluegill not only provides a tremendous battle on ultralight gear but also provides our tastebuds with memorable meals.And to those kind souls living on and around Bangs Lake in Wauconda, please excuse my brashness when I tell about the fabulous bluegill fishing available now on your lake.Aside from the massive schools of big ‘gills showing up on Lake Geneva, Bangs Lake seems to be holding its own for big bluegills and largemouth bass.Picture where the boat docks normally sit in front of Wauconda Boat. There is a massive weed line just north of the dock area in about 8 feet of water. You can readily find schools of bluegills and scattered bass feeding on minnows.If you are still running your boat, try motoring across the lake (if you launch at Wauconda Boat) to the “square channel” and fish the weed edges. This is another spot where bait fish congregate and where that happens you’ll also find bluegills and game fish as well.Because we’ve entertained decent fall weather local fishing conditions have yet to ready itself to the point of super cold water.I’m using Berkley Power minnows as well as live spikes and wax worms for bait. The Power Minnows tip a 1/32 oz. jig head or a drop shot rig. Either way, I haven’t gone wrong in locating and catching these tasty morsels.• Contact Mike Jackson at angler88@comcast.net, and catch his radio show 6-7 a.m. Sundays on WSBC 1240-AM and live-streamed at www.mikejacksonoutdoors.com.

    Statement by Sen. Al Franken on sexual harassment allegation

    Text of a statement Thursday from Sen. Al Franken (Democrat, Minnesota) after he was accused of sexual harassment by fellow performer Leeann Tweeden on a 2006 USO Tour:“The first thing I want to do is apologize: to Leeann, to everyone else who was part of that tour, to everyone who has worked for me, to everyone I represent, and to everyone who counts on me to be an ally and supporter and champion of women. There’s more I want to say, but the first and most important thingand if it’s the only thing you care to hear, that’s fineis: I’m sorry.“I respect women. I don’t respect men who don’t. And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed.“But I want to say something else, too. Over the last few months, all of usincluding and especially men who respect womenhave been forced to take a good, hard look at our own actions and think (perhaps, shamefully, for the first time) about how those actions have affected women.“For instance, that picture. I don’t know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn’t matter. There’s no excuse. I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn’t funny. It’s completely inappropriate. It’s obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture. And, what’s more, I can see how millions of other women would feel violated by itwomen who have had similar experiences in their own lives, women who fear having those experiences, women who look up to me, women who have counted on me.“Coming from the world of comedy, I’ve told and written a lot of jokes that I once thought were funny but later came to realize were just plain offensive. But the intentions behind my actions aren’t the point at all. It’s the impact these jokes had on others that matters. And I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to come to terms with that.“While I don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit as Leeann does, I understand why we need to listen to and believe women’s experiences.“I am asking that an ethics investigation be undertaken, and I will gladly cooperate.“And the truth is, what people think of me in light of this is far less important than what people think of women who continue to come forward to tell their stories. They deserve to be heard, and believed. And they deserve to know that I am their ally and supporter. I have let them down and am committed to making it up to them.”
