    I used to use a bamboo pole myself; people claimed that I did not know how to fish because I did not bait the hook. I never could understand where they got the idea that I wanted to catch a fish.

    Don’t cry until you have asked, Pee-Wee, or a spanking will be in order.
    Cover the end of the hook with bate, Pee Wee. At this point, that is all you need to know.

    Exactly. If you bate the hook you take a chance of having to deal with first a live then a dead fish. Much better to just set and enjoy your thoughts “fishing”. There are always plenty of sea food places if you want to eat fish.

    Is Three Rocks in Tennessee? I just saw the “Titans” cap.

    in the Gilchrist-drawn Nancy, “Three Rocks” is Gallatin, TN, a small town right outside of Nashville. (Also the cartoonist’s home :-)

    Try using bait, it works better than bate. Bate is a real word, it just doesn’t mean what you think it does.

    No problem if you ‘bate’ the hook, but if you bait the hook you might catch a fish.
    Personally, I’d like to see something that would cause illiteracy to abate.
