  1. If you win, you'll get a PM with the mailing address.
  2. I don't drink that much when fishing!!!!!
  3. Yes you can. If you win, we will PM the mailing address to you.
  4. That happens.
  5. Some excellent points made herein, esp re what I'll call "being on the same page" when it comes to styles, night vs day vs two-hours-pre-dawn vs two-hours-at-dusk, stamina, etc. I "fish with" maybe a dozen or two guys in a season. Although we might "fish together" on the Canal for a full tide, we might not see other for much more than an hour at best during that tide. We often take a "divide and conquer" approach, whereby we hit different spots, use different approaches, and share solid info with each other via phone or text while on the water, knowing full well that none of us will ever share our results with others. I also "fish with" only a handful of guys. By that I mean those guys with whom I share similar approaches re day part, how long we stay, when we move to another spot, when we quit to get some breakfast and coffee, etc. To me, that's a great way to fish. (Don't get me wrong, I've fished hundreds of tides solo, and enjoyed every single one of them. But there are times that are great to share with a good mate or two.) And I've learned so much from every single one of them. Sharking from the Cape Cod beaches, probing some nasty currents and boulder fields in the dark of night, fishing for schoolies on the ebb with light gear on the ebb, chasing stripers up and down the NJ beaches, slinging eels here and there, tossing fur and feathers, fishing local waters, throwing bottle plugs in heavy winds, late-season misadventures to SoCo, and so much more. (You guys all know who you are, and how much I've both enjoyed fishing with you and look forward to many more hours together.) Looking back on the last five seasons, I've met guys in both categories via SOL. Some via Ditch Trolls Forum, some via events, some via posts like "I'm a guy from MA, heading to your area". Don't be shy. Reach out and say hello, whether on the water, at an event, or on-line. Share whatever you have (tackle, power bars, water, tape, etc.) with anybody who needs it. Be courteous.
  6. I'm waiting for the next thread related to "How to recognize a Troll?"
  7. 55 views and not a single bid?
  8. No worries, CC Rider. I didn't see the most recent bid until *after* I asked you about min bid $$. If I recall my many prior conversations with Sandbar1 correctly, he acquired a number of tins from his grandfather a couple of years ago, and he asked me about them. Most of them had been in storage for many years, so they were dulled with tarnish, but they were all rock-solid, with great hooks. I think that I traded a plug or two for a handful of them back then. They cleaned up quite well and quite easily. And they caught for me. (There's a lot to be said for metals made of real tin, as all of you who've followed this thread know all too well. And you also all know that originals by PT JUDE, Pasquale, and Graves are hard to find.) Thank you for helping us out!
  9. I don't think that the minimum bid price was unreasonable. Do you?
  10. PM me and *maybe* I can help you out!
  11. No idea what that means, but I'll assume that its not horrible!
