  1. I've never seen one of those before. Very interesting
  2. Picked this up at a flea market last week for 30 bucks. Don't know why, I just liked it. Another one to add to the collection.
  3. That's pretty cool! I'm assuming sinew and flint? What's the jawbone?
  4. Thousand Islands. About 10:30 at night.
  5. I think it just helps the lens focus quicker if you are shooting a subject at close range. But I could be wrong.
  6. You mean this one?
  7. I pulled this out of the water today while I was fishing in the boat. Let her dry out for a few hours and she seemed as good as new.
  8. People used to ask me how I could fish all night. I tell them it's easier for me to fish from 9 at night til 5 in the morning than it is to get up at 2 or 3 am, no matter how much sleep I get. I don't know why, but getting up that early just kills me. Especially as I get older. A few years ago I started to lose the drive I once had for fishing. I'll be 53 in a month, and a few years before 50, I just started not to care as much. Keep in mind, I fished anywhere and every where I could for 45 years before that. No one in my family ever fished, I never really wanted to fish with many people and be attached to their schedules, I just fished by myself forever, and I loved it. Salt, fresh, ice fishing, fly fishing, anywhere I could. I have a 21 year old son who loves to fish, and for 15 years or so, he was my drive to go. I took him everywhere. When he went to college, I started to realize that if he wasn't around to push me, I just didn't go. When he's home for summer, we go a lot, but only because he wants to go. Now, I have to push myself and make a conscious effort to get out and go. The interest just isn't there. Don't know why. I probably need to simplify and concentrate on one area of fishing and stick with it.
  9. Thanks all. Found some interestingn spots, and some happy bunker swimming around unmolested, but no fish for us. Still worth the exploring, my kid learned a new spot or 2 for next year. Came home to jersey and got some fish this morning and sent them north.
  10. Night shots are tough, even tougher on a phone. The small sensor of a phone won't allow you to grab a lot of light, and even if you can raise the ISO, you'll get a ton of noise in the shot. Best I can tell you is to get what you can out of the phone and then try to lighten it up in some kind of post processing software. But that's a tough shot even with a "real" camera.
  11. No korkers. Staying on sand. Stuffs loaded in the car, heading up after work, probably gonna give somewhere a shot in the AM
