Visual Description:  Fishing in very shallow waters.

UNEVE  =  VENUE,  CARTT  =  TRACT,  LODUEM  =  MODULE,  BIHRDY  =  HYBRID   —   Giving us:  VEETRTMOEHID

Clue/Question:  Fishing when the water was low would have to . . .

Answer:  TIDE THEM OVER

(Great pun!  Like low tide . . . a real stinker!  I don’t have access to the ralis95 clue word database, so I can’t say if any of the clue words are new, but they all looked kind of familiar.  I really liked the jumbling of “venue” and “hybrid”.  The answer letter layout was outstanding!  For those of you who didn’t get the answer right away, I’m sure this answer letter layout was giving you fits.  Second cartoon with two guys in a boat this week.  This time out on the salty brine.  We got our classic sinking sailboat on the horizon with this one.  Very satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It’s a cruel season that makes you get ready for bed while it’s still light out.”   —   Bill Watterson

(Must be one of Calvin’s lines.  I miss Calvin and Hobbes.  It was one of the all-time great comic strips.  Must be nice, being able to retire so young.  I’ll probably end up dying in this cubicle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
