Humans are very superstitious which is why scientists have to be trained to ignore their biases and make decisions based on evidence. Science is a fairly recent development for humans and a large part of why we have developed technologically in such a short period of time. It is also why we live longer and have fewer things that kill us off giving us the freedom to believe all manner of things without natural selection taking us out:)

Hey guys, the moderators have been notified that forum members are uncomfortable with the turn of this thread. What started out as "where I should stay" thread turned into a medical thread based on what we know, what we don't know, and what we think we know, and I'm as guilty as anyone. The best way to handle this, and the way we are going to handle this, is to lay off any further medicine, treatments, or possible treatments from this point forward. We all read the news and know what's being tested, so anything else at this point is conjecture anyway. Hopefully, we'll all have one correct answer soon.

The thread will stay open as long as we all play by the rules.

Zep, what was your decision?

This is definitely un-chartered waters we are wading thru right now, everybody has their theories about the stuff, bottom line is I wish for all my friends on this forum, and everywhere else to hunker down and make the best of it, and come out the other side stronger then ever, with all their fishing spots and gear in top notch condition, along with their health, if anything it does remind us of higher powers that are in charge, and I'm not talking about the politicians, and in my case it reminds me of what life is about,, taking a kid or grandkid out with a worm and a bobber and enjoy them as much as you can when you can,, as somebody said before,, we ain't gonna get out of this alive,, enjoy it while we can.
We all have that friend that left this world way too early that is not afforded this same luxury. Enjoy the time we have and get ready to fish on Brothers and Sisters!

I'm generally just staying home. Might as well, no place open to go to.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Does anyone directly know someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?

Sunil, I don't have family or friends with it at this time. But from what I understand we could be looking at 40 to 70% of the USA will get it in the next 18 to 24 months. I expect to be isolated (self imposed) as much as possible for the next 8 weeks. I don't like that idea but it sure is looking that way. It's just that I am 67 and am not in tip top shape. I am finding it's not so easy to stay self isolated since I have to go out for groceries. I did do an online grocery order and got about 50% of what I asked for. So looks like I will have to venture out for some of the necessities. As far as ponds go, this may be the first spring (in 5 yr's) I have not added anything other than MVP to my pond.

My daughter has a bug & is in isolation at home. Fortunately, her C19 test came back negative.

We're gonna see a LOT more infections now, mostly because testing is ramping up. Tests used to take days and gave too many false positive results back when the CDC ran things. Then private enterprise entered the fray, and quickly developed a test that yields results in 8 hours. Within the last few days, new tests are on scene that take only 30 to 45 minutes.

What's the latest from your neck of the woods?

Here in western PA, from a nurse that I know, she says that much of the tension in the hospitals is regarding the medical staff NOT having proper medical PPE to use during this time of crisis.

The hospitals here are not overflowing and still have much headroom for more critical care.

Here in south east kansas we are doing pretty good. There are a small handful of cases in surrounding counties. We was one of the 1st areas to close schools so I'm sure that helped some at least. Most businesses are still open for the most part but being careful also. Restaurants are doing curbside services and that's bout it. Hope everyone is staying safe n happy.

We have or maybe had a cruise scheduled for September. Fly from DFW to Canada, catch a ship and head North to Alaska. Have fishing reservations there. Then cruise back and fly home. I’m betting it gets cancelled. If not, we will most likely eat the cost and stay home.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Hi RS, thank you for your interest.
So far it's okay for me and my family, but people keep getting infected and dying and it's so sad. The only positive thing is that (it seems) it is reaching its peak and it would be very nice because it would mean finally having a hope to get out of it, albeit far.
I see from the news that unfortunately it is also hitting you hard in the USA. How are you all doing there? I hope you are all well, you and your loved ones. A prayer for all of us. I need to think that all this may end soon.
Stay safe. Stay home.

Friends call me Rusto. So far so good around my house. There has been cases pop up here and there around this part of kansas. Nobody that leaves in Parsons yet. One worker at nursing home in town came down with it and lives a couple counties over. Very sad deal for everyone.
