  1. nice catch
  2. thefishingdoc - I will take the 10' 6" mojo. if there are no cracked guides. PM me the pick up info. this looks like it will replace the old St. Croix Ben Doeer surf rod I broke last Friday. thanks
  3. Are all the guides solid? no cracks? I am interested in the 10'6"
  4. note to self. almost all of the portable compressors have NO intake filters. so do not place it on the ground where it will eventually suck up a grain of sand and blow itself up at the most inopportune time. I have found I can place my Viair on the intake manifold while its connected to the battery terminals of my jeep GC and the hose makes it to all 4 tires.
  5. Always carry spares. clip a bunch of swivels and clips together and hang on your plug bag.
  6. Yes that is how I rig. sometimes I eliminate the swivel when using a clip that has a swivel. Braid to flouro leader with Alberto knot, palomar knot to clip.
  7. Scubachris, I use an Okuma Trio 65 reel on an old 10'6" St. Croix Ben Doerr surf rod. I bought it here on the BST maybe 5 years ago and it has served me well, but I am in looking for a new reel, Thinking about going to Diawa BG 5500 instead.
  8. There is nothing wrong with donations to the American Red Cross. They are always on the top of my list because of the impact they can make anywhere at a moments notice. What documentation are you referring to? sounds like more fake news to me. Go to an independent 3rd party recourse like Charity Navigator and read the IRS filings and other documentation. This is a HUGE, and rather transparent organization supported almost entirely by private donations. Programs (FYE 06/2015) Program names and associated costs are listed for the top programs as reported on the charity's most recently filed Form 990. The top programs displayed will include the largest three programs, or those programs covering at least 60% of the charity's total expenses, whichever comes first. Program Name Amount Spent % of Program Expenses Biomedical Services $1,869,188,089 72.3% Domestic Disaster Services $349,577,028 13.5% Health and Safety Services $146,591,926 5.7%
  9. Yes. There is a group on long island called Your Connection To Nature that works with schools to do quail releases. The teachers get the incubators and eggs and hatch the chicks in classrooms. Then they all get together to do a mass release. recently in Port Washington and in Caleb Smith Park for tick control. They have been doing this for at least 7 years as my daughter was involved with the research on Bobwhite Quail vs. Tick Study Experiment when she was a junior in High School.
  10. Too cloudy here tonight to see any :-(
  11. interesting info. Thanks . check out the google earth view too. wonder whats in the freshwater pond there? the NYS parks page indicates there are no fees? Maybe they did not update that page yet? Since its a state park maybe it will eventually get added to the night fishing permit list? v
  12. I also use the harbor freight 3 ton jack (item 68048) and the 3 Ton Steel Jack Stands (Item # 61196) Catch them on sale and use the 20% coupon - its a deal. Had to upgrade from my original craftsman 1.5 ton after buying a Chevy Suburban that it just could not lift. My 1/2" impact gun is also HF (Chicago pneumatic) and I have it for over 30 years. Just add a few drops of oil when done and it can last a long time for a backyard mechanic. The gun has a torque setting. I can get it close to where it should be but I always finish by using a real torque wrench to get exactly to 95 ft-lbs. Its too easy to warp rotors now :-( v.
  13. Same as a Gurnard. Best Fish-n-chips fillet https://www.youtube.com/embed/3UtgF37tEA0
  14. did anyone read this NYT article about the DNC tech support contractor who blew off the FBI agent trying to report the cyber attacks? My goodness, at least let your supervisor know :-o The Perfect Weapon: How Russian Cyberpower Invaded the U.S. By ERIC LIPTON, DAVID E. SANGER and SCOTT SHANE DEC. 13, 2016 " Yared Tamene, the tech-support contractor at the D.N.C. who fielded the call, was no expert in cyberattacks. His first moves were to check Google for “the Dukes” and conduct a cursory search of the D.N.C. computer system logs to look for hints of such a cyberintrusion. By his own account, he did not look too hard even after Special Agent Hawkins called back repeatedly over the next several weeks — in part because he wasn’t certain the caller was a real F.B.I. agent and not an impostor. "
  15. I had to completely remove the unit and disassemble. something had gotten pushed in to a moving arm and blocked it from making a complete cycle. bent the plastic back in place and we got ice again.
