We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

That's why each tread has to be a flame thread! If you don't think this board is turning into rivals, you're mistaken! This thread is a troll thread but count how many on this board are. It's getting worse everyday.
I'd say Vermont, Boston, NYC(northeast or midatlantic?), and Connecticut are all much nicer than Florida.
There isn't a city in Florida that comes close to Boston.
Bass fishing seriously.The only state with better bass fishing than Florida is Texas.Pick up a copy of Bass Masters magazine.You won't find any northern states in it I assure you of that.Walleye magazines yes.
Lake Erie has the best walleye fishing, imo.
Weather sucks in those places.Its 70 degrees in November here.And never gets much over 95 in the summer.They don't call it the sunshine state for nothin.
Number of Top 50 Bass-Fishing lakes of each state: Michigan 4, Florida 4.
Field and Stream 12 Best states for fly-fishing: Michigan 1, Florida 7
No walleye here in Florida.I wish though,fun to catch but they don't tast as good as grouper.I wish we had muskies they look fun to fish for.But I am a tarpon junkie no fish can match a silver king for athleticism.
I've lived in Michigan 27 years and I've been to Detroit maybe 5 times... I should keep this secret but northern Michigan would blow your mind if you spent some time up there on their beautful lakes. Google "Torch Lake" and "Crystal Lake". Best part: NO SHARKS.

Weather sucks if you don't like cold weather. There are plenty of people who enjoy 4 seasons, those same people complain when it's -5 but winter isn't that bad. I don't mind snow and enjoy 50 degree fall days. It's a matter of opinions.
You don't know how to cook it.
Walleye > Grouper
Eh sharks aren't really a big deal. Best part imo is that if you swallow a ton of the water your throat/nostril don't burn.
There are more 10 pound bass caught out of Lake Fork,Falcon,Amistad,and Toledo bend than all off Michigan combined.There are 4 bassmaster tournaments in Texas every year.Mich.0. No lake in any northern state can even come close to any of these Texas lakes in numbers of bass or size.13 pound bass are caught fairly often in all 4 of them.And I could name at least 4 other lakes as well.I follow professional bass fishing closely and bass fishing is king in the south.
haha! Florida has us beat big time on fishing. We have world class Walleye and Smallmouth Bass fisheries, but the rest is mediocre. Salmon fishing has really fallen off in recent years, otherwise I'd include that one on the "world class fishery" list. Ohio does have phenomenal steelhead fishing but thats only reason I ever go there.
I think wendel was talking about Smallmouth Bass. We dont have the fishery to support Largemouth Bass. Thats a fact.
North Dakota by far. Unless you're into the whole desolate, Siberia kind of environment..not to mention mosquitoes are the state bird.
The hypocrisy in this post is hilarious.
agree 50 degree crisp days say football to me
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Oh i love winter. I ice fish more than I open water fish. Plus all the critters you hunt in winter arent riddled with fleas and parasites like they are in warm weather. But it does get kinda depressing once football is over... FACT.
Perhaps you don't understand hypocrisy. I was referring to a small-minded bigot from Michigan stereotyping the entire south as small-minded bigots as though he is the world's authority on tolerance and open-mindedness when he hasn't the first clue what that is. Obviously it was over your head though...not very surprising honestly.

Great point, I forgot about them. Definitely top 3 come to think of it. Still behind Ohio though.
The south ain't bad except for Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana. All the other states are cool
