  1. Why HABS needlefish and not Gibbs?Does one fish differently than the other? Are they made differently? JUst from looking at them it appears the eyes are different.What are some other differences?
  2. Ok so the rod is rated 1-3 ozs. Now the question is what will it really throw? Can I go down to 1/2 oz, 3/4 oz? How about 5 oz? I plan on using the rod primarily to throw larger plugs, 1 1/2 to 3 oz, but just curious as to how low or high I could go>
  3. Do they still make squidding line? you old timers know what I'm talking about. The dacron braided lines, used to come on interconnected 50 yard spools. Came in three pound tests I think , 24, 36, and 50 pound. I think Cortland used to make them. Curious if they are still made, and more curious if anybody still uses them.
  4. My friends widow is looking to sell a pair of Triton Beast Master reels. Model 30/50 along with a matching pair of rods rated 30/80, model BR-1605 Rf. Trying to get a value on them . Any ideas? Seems they aare no longer in the Shimaano line up. By the way they are both new, Absolutely never been used, Never even had line spooled on them.
  5. Myself my first jacket leaked and the seam tape peeled off. Replacement jacket leaked a little but I haven't fished it enough to give an honest appraisal. **edited - Please, as always, keep any negative product reviews to your own personal experience.

  6. You could have split it down the backbone. And butterflyed it on the grill. Place a brick or two on top of the turkey to keep it spread out, Sort of like chicken under a brick only larger,
  7. you can do them in the oven but I prefer the broiler. Takes a few minutes -- you just need to watch them so that they don't get too dark.
  8. Can you wipe out a front end in only 6200 miles? Last front alignment was 6200 miles ago. No problems at that time. Went for a alignment today and the guy says the front end is shot. Need new ball joints, upper and lower control arms and idler arm plus. Just seems like it shouldn't happen that fast. The front end was greased every 3-35oo miles. Want almost 700 dollars to repair Any comments.
  9. take the kielbasa and cut in part way through length wise. fill the cut with horseradish. Take stripes of bacon and wrap the kielbasa up with the bacon. This should hold the horseradish in. Use toothpicks to hold the bacon in place. Place on the grill at low temps until cooked the way you like. Me i prefer a nice light char. The bacon keeps the lielbasa from dryying out while adding a great flavor. Just remember low heat as the bacon fat will cause lots of flareups
  10. Matty you bringing the wife? Seems like most of you guys are going stag. Man the girl friend wants some company
  11. Coarse thread or narrow? And why? Personally I prefer coarse.
  12. Hey RAv bring da Wife. I'm bringing the girlfriend and Elliot and Bob are bringing their wives. Besides you know you always walk out with a ton of stuff.
  13. My computer is acting up. It started up in "safe" and I can't get it out of SAFE. How do I get it back to normal?
  14. Found some rotten wood in my basement. So I replace it with Pressure treated wood. But when I go to nail the PT to the floor with 10D cut nails the nail box says not to. So what do I use instead?
  15. Just starting to re-do the basement bathroom. Quick questions about tile backer. 1- Do you need special tools to cut this stuff or is a regular saw blade good? 2- What do you use- if anything to seal the seams between boards?
  16. "Sorry I never go out with a girl whose bra size is bigger than her IQ"
  17. HAven't been down that way in quite some time and only then in the summer months. I remeber there is/was a fishing pier north oh Mrytle Beach. Never had any great success myself. I think there is also one closer to town but can't be sure. As for the beaches you could throw metal for blues,bait for croakers,pompano and seatrout. As I said earlier my experience is only for July and August so take it with a large grain of salt. Also remember it is along time ago for me. Hell the last time I was in Mrytle Beach I think they only had forty golf courses.
  18. Re-doing the basement. Need to change some plumbing around so the question is should I use brass pipe or copper tubing? I know brass is a lot more expensive but I have some pipe from other jobs lying around . I also have the nesassary tools to work it. Copper is just so much faster. What would you do?
  19. Doing some work in my basement. Didn't feel like driving over to Loews or Home Depot so I go to the local lumber yard. Rip off. Prices were approximately 30% higher than the big box stores. Yeah I know support the local guys but damn 30% is alot of cash when you buy a lot of stuff. 2x3's 1.74 vs 2.50 wall board 10.80 vs 6.74 louvered doors 42 vs 34 wall board compound 13.98 vs 10.55 Oh well next time I'm taking a short road trip and saving me some money.
  20. If you have to ask something must be wrong with you. I stopped fishing in 94 because I went back to school. Didn't fish at all from Memorial Day '1994 through June of 1996. By the time I graduated in 96 my mother was ill with Alzheimers so I barely fished that year(5 trips total}Since then I have built up my trip totals but to a max of maybe 50 a year. Big difference from the per school totals of 250 trips a year. So mostly I wish I was fishing
  21. So I guess you are giving up on your Aquaskinz? Hopefully the quality on this one will be better and it won't leak. I wonder if they will take a trade .
  22. OK I'm in.
  23. A double ended dildo on the beach by Cliff street in Staten Island. A very large vibrator in Great Kills Park on Staten Island. Dead sea turtles, Sturgeons and a very ripe and bloated possium. An outboard engine prop wedged into a 12x12 timber. Hell how about an outboard engine? Or better yet how about an inboard engine still attached to the wrecked hull. ( this one is now in a former friends boat. Runs fine after being rebuilt) Bunch of other stuff but can't think of it right now.
  24. So the old floor has got to go. It seems the plywood didn't quite match up on one beams. As such the seam "flexed' and cracked/broke the tiles. My brother in law tried to fix it but it didn't work. Any way I'm thinking of two possibilities. First is to lay 1/4" plywood over the entire surface and then lay tile on top of that.I fiqiure this will cover the creaked tiles and the seam. Second choice is to rip up the entire old floor and replace that layer of plywood either with 1/2" or 3/4" before laying new tile. Option 1 is quick and easy, option 2 is a pain. Which would you pick?
