  1. I think Pep just didn't wanna take us fishing in the rain... but he was right last night.
  2. Hit all my favorite spots last night without anyone near by. I had the whole place practically to myself! It was probably the rain that kept people away.... and maybe the lack of fish..... but it was sure quiet last night......so quiet you could hear the whale swimming through. Visited my mom at the campgrounds this morning and she told me that Pepere always said that fish don't bite in the rain.
  3. Sheesh! Don't go swimming in THAT swimmin hole!
  4. Well... maybe not EVERYone... I mean... I did like just running in and grabbing 3/4 of a case for $70 in 5 minutes
  5. I do agree.. but in this case I was using a XSRA 1205. It's got a bit o backbone to it.
  6. 1. Tree house still holds sway with me as my #1 fave beer, but I can't get there and now my BIL has other options closer to him so I very rarely get any anymore. 2. I stopped at "Canned Heat" brewery in Fall River on my way to my Nephews Grad party (at said BIL's house) and brought a 4pk of everything they had. 3. I will probably be stopping here weekly and not missing either Trillium (though it's down the street from where I work) or dare I say, my beloved Treehouse. I and those present at the party would highly, highly recommend Juelz, Suppah and What's Up Homeboy. I didn't get to try the Khan of Khans, as well... I had already had too many of the other three.
  7. Funny as heck to watch. They sound like a kitten in the tree.
  8. twice now in the canal I've fished big swimmers at slack tide and have had a fish take the plug and go straight down to rub it off on the bottom. The first time I had a 40lb leader and it snapped. This time luckily I got the plug back, but there was no turning this fish on the initial run and it went straight down. I should take a look at those hooks when I get home!
  9. Drifting Jigs near shore on the West tide after sunset is my favorite. Billl Hurleys sandeels in 1.75 oz are my faves for slower current areas. Savage Sandeels in 3 or 5 oz when its faster. Just make sure you are using the right amount of weight for your location and that you're "ticking" the bottom
  10. That...... took me a minute.
  11. A friend and co-worker of mine drove down from ~ Moncton NB yesterday for a conference here today. He was coming down 128 South last night at about 5:00pm. Today he said that he told his wife on the phone last night that he will never again complain about traffic anywhere back home.
  12. I commute about half of the distance you're talking about. The easy half. Between Berkley and Westwood up route 24. Commmute time ranges from 45 minutes (before 6:45am and after 7:00pm typically) to 90 minutes. You're tacking another 20 to 30+ minutes on either end on average. Not to mention that as my daughter personified the feeling of driving down route 24: "If route 24 had a smell, it would be dirty ashtray." Route 3 would be an option for you. but I wouldn't wish that on anyone. My boss commutes from BuzzBay to Westwood and he leaves around 5:45am
  13. I'm probably gonna try turning a couple just like it this weekend.
  14. Seriously. I took my daughter fishing last week (Froday 5/24 actually) at Murderers row. She was catching schoolies on a small herring pattern pencil I had made for her when she joined the "snapped off a nice custom wood plug when I forgot to open the bail" club. I had chalked it up to just another loss but the damn thing fished so nice it's been bugging me. It's probably just shy of 2 ounces and might resemble a left hook pilgrim but blind. Maybe with a rounder butt. (I'm so inconsistent) blue top, pink sides, pearl bottom. Probably have TA clip to 50lb mono leader with a little 30lb Fireline still attached to it If you find it, I'll trade you for your choice of any plug in my bucket (I keep most of my plugs in bins in my truck) Or I'll make you one just like it, or $25. Your choice
