  1. I agree, though I’m not so sure about the sun part.
  2. Among other things I don’t get the connection between car companies and pro spots.
  3. It came up at a MAFMC advisors meeting and it seems to be true for the entire northeast coast.
  4. Depending on where you keep the boat you'll probably have a short run to the sound. You might be able to get a tour of the C.G. academy, maybe the Groton sub Base and maybe the electric boat facility where they make the subs. If Block is a big attraction maybe you should look at the area around the great salt pond in Narragansett - Wakefield - Southerner's Kingston RI.
  5. I just bought a 10 inch GPS/charplotter. IIRC it is a gpsmap 10xvs. I couldn't get the unit to track my boat properly. I literally spent hours on the phone with their customer service rep. None of them could tell me how to get it working. Evidently the documentation they use doesn't even have the right instructions for that unit. I finally gave up and was going to return it and buy another brand, but I decided to give it one more try. By dumb luck I must have pushed the right combination of buttons and I got it working. he point is, in my case, Garmin customer service was completely useless.
  6. There are also two Korean markets on Northern Blvd. In the flushing/bayside area.
  7. Beat me to it!
  8. Yeah so they bite a piece of plastic, schmart, real schmart.
  9. They'll probably just use the Percentage from last year and apply it to this year's much reduced landings. Its the recreational side of things that is going to be the most contentious. Huge increase in effort in the first 6 months of this year, and there isn't much data to document it.
  10. Why do you think that the lack of observers will affect the reporting of the commercial catch which is based on dealer reports? BTW I know both of the featured speakers, and you're right it should be an interesting discussion.
  11. That's exactly what I meant. NO RI carry permit go directly to jail, do not pass go and don't collect $200.
  12. With a cellar full of good wine how can you drink that crap?
  13. What work in NJ isn't the same as what works in RI/Montauk, and its also probably different than what works on Nantucket shoals.
  14. Not in my experience.
  15. Well, If you didn't agree to it before hand you can dispute the charge with your credit card company, just like if you ordered something for $10 and they charged your card $20.
  16. Agree, but according to the law you have to free it ASAP, so if that means with some line attached, you don't have a choice.
  17. Doesn’t make a difference they are both poor choices for bait!
  18. Suffice it to say it was a medical problem with my intestinal tract.
  19. If you don’t have a carry permit you’ll wind up in the clink!
  20. FWIW, I rarely tip for takeout. The only exception is when someone goes above and beyond. TIP - to insure prompt service. Take out is no service .
  21. Or just cut the line.
  22. Well isn’t it good that you are getting an education? Now you know what to ask a potential fishing buddy.
  23. They would have gotten a ticket and fined for disturbing a marine mammal.
