  1. I remember the Camel Riders, the guy my dad bowled with--Syrian or Lebanese guy from RI named George. He had a hot wife and gorgeous daughters, too. His wife's name was Virginia, the daughters Christine and Charlene. I caught a scup the size of a dinner plate one night, and gave it to them. I don't remember Dante's Inferno. Might have been too distracted by George's daughters.
  2. Not in mine. My father hated him with a passion. I understand it now---I felt the same way about Jimmy Houston.
  3. Yeah, you can drive out on Aptuxet Rd. to Perry Ave. and come out to Trading Post corners. I think that Perry Ave. might be the only road in Bourne and Sandwich that exists on opposite sides of the Canal under the same name.
  4. I can't remember a time when Bell Rd wasn't like the bar scene in Star Wars. Even back in the 1960s, on Friday nights, the guys would pour in driving their old converted bread delivery vans, the jugs would come out, and voices would get louder. There was one guy from RI who my dad bowled with in the winter, whose wife was like the coffee hostess to the troops. Some guys even drank it without a shot in it.
  5. I'm pretty sure that Tim advertised them as forged. I know that if you tried to press the point back towards the shank, it wouldn't budge. They were older Mustad hooks, predating the time that they had to be changed to comply with Norway's new environmental regs.
  6. The only RR underpass anywhere near Bell Rd is the one on Old Monument Neck Rd, leading out from Aptuxet and the Worcester Surfcasters Club.
  7. No, I haven't, and I've never bought a house without making the P&S contingent on an engineer's inspection. Even our place here was new construction, but my wife still flew over for a brief visit to eyeball it before she signed the papers.
  8. Would you believe that I haven't managed to get there yet? Covid really set us back on travelling.
  9. It looks like one of Tim's SOL ball head jigs, from when he had the online store here. The hook was either a 7/0 or 8/0 Mustad, depending on whether it was a 3 or 4 oz. head. Looks like a 3 to me, and since I know where that fish was hooked, I doubt it was a 4.
  10. I have. I poured the same secret color, as well as several other experimental ones. Bob's secret color outproduced all of them, both stock Sluggos and my own secret colors. I will say that there were some nights when other colors produced better, but over the course of a season, that color was it. I also poured 2 color baits---little tougher to get right than singles, but doable. The other other thing that makes home poured produce better than off the shelf is the texture. Softer, so there's more wobble in the tail. There were a couple of different liquid formulas for different degrees of hardness.
  11. Food's great, but Gull is, charitably, mediocre.
  12. It's not specifically illegal, but being drunk and disorderly probably violates one or more Mass General Laws, and possibly a town ordinance.
  13. And Bell Rd. is the Panhandle.
  14. I remember it. That was either a 7/0 or 8/0 forged Mustad jig hook. That fish took you about 100 yards down the Canal before it trashed that hook.
  15. The Marine Mammal Protection Act was signed into law on October 21, 1972. The identity of the President who signed it on that date is a historical fact. It's not clear whether there were enough votes in Congress to override, if he vetoed it, but in any event, he was a supporter of it. Do you have a point, or are you just going to complain about how unfairly you've been treated, despite still being here after several bans and stays in mod queue, and countless edited political posts?
