    Not Telling
  1. Believe that’s the first fluke I’ve ever heard being caught on a bluegill strip. Good job, I think
  2. don't disagree . . . but my point is it would never get that far. The BOE already knows it's a non-starter.
  3. Doesn't work that way . . . a district, specifically the BOE, cannot target older teaches and rehire younger to replace. Union will never allow it . . . you have to move a mountain to terminate a tenured teacher. Extracurricular activities will be cut first, then they will identify upcoming retirements and not replace those teachers or admin. In addition, if needed, they can float a referendum to increase taxes to cover shortfall.
  4. If you can build a rod, I would suggest the Mudhole SU1087F . . . you can get it in one or two piece. 2 oz is probably top end . . . I'm primarily throwing between 3/4 and 1.5 . . . paired with a VS150 and spooled with 20lb braid.
  5. Maybe the camera was in the sun at that time and then shaded minutes later . . .
  6. Very sorry to hear this MW, will certainly keep her, you and family in my daily prayers.
  7. Having a consistent bite with 25-32” fish on top water . . . So many very beautiful fish . . . I’ve often thought the Chesapeake fish have a more sloping head as opposed to Hudson fish having more of block head . . . Just an observation.
  8. If you get out to the fluke grounds, water is much cleaner . . . dirty water seems to be in all the creeks.
  9. You're in great hands! Again, please feel free to use me as a resource . . . it was only 3 years ago for me, age 56, and still fresh in my mind. Not a horrible experience at all . . . cardiac floor at JSMC was phenomenal, it's a relatively new floor and the ventilation system brings in fresh air rather than recycled. I had my surgery 5/15/17 and by July I was running again . . . by fall I was full swing into fishing with no limitations.
  10. Hey Tim, Had mine 3 years ago, a 6x CABG . . . I was asymptomatic. Not necessarily agreeing with the opinion here to go to “the big city”. Jersey Shore has one of the best cardiac floors in the region. My doc is a young guy, 43-44 years old out of Monmouth Cardiology, Dr Jason Litsky. Dr. Kourosh Asgarian at Mid-Atlantic Surgical Associates was my cardiothoracic surgeon. My step daughter is an ICU nurse on the cardiac floor at Columbia Presbyterian. If you want a “big city” opinion that’s the place to go. She was extremely impressed with the approach, treatment and care I received. Multiple doctors I am friends with all suggested I go to Jersey Shore. 2 opinions is never a bad idea, so my suggestion is to start with Dr Litsky and then Columbia Presbyterian. Just let me know if you want the name of a surgeon there. My opinion, for what’s its worth. If your blockage is significant and in a spot that makes catheterization difficult, best to have the bypass done. Good luck and let me know if I can be a resource.
  11. Yes, first cast slid a 54 onto the beach . . . and then sold it right away for $600!!! Gonna use those funds to buy two more at $300 each direct, and rinse and repeat. Possible world record at some point
  12. LOL!!!
  13. Sold in the BST for $600 . . . not sure I understand.
  14. Thanks, got it. Presumptive compliance as far as financial hardship. But still need to show evidence 75% of funds used for payroll. Also, I’m still not clear how sole p’s or independent contractors loans will be forgiven if they don’t have any employees.
