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

    This has to be the *ninth* time “venue” has slowed me down, Señor! And with 12 very common letters, the secret word was one of the hardest in a while.

    I’m working my way forward…..finally got this one. I just knew a word had to be missing in the clue!

    I’ve been out of town and someone being helpful has thrown away most of my saved puzzles. So I only have a couple of more to finish up before I’m caught up. I don’t think they have been easy at all, and have thoroughly enjoyed them.
