  1. I guess I'm not hardcore enough. I'm gonna get some much needed R&R instead of standing in the rain. Stay safe out there guys!
  2. I think we are misunderstanding each other. I think you're talking about fishing slack or incoming while I'm thinking specifically outgoing. If done correctly... How is a rotation during the outgoing not correct, but ridiculous I think the term was? Yes you can put 3-4 guys at the end and you'll probably catch fish. But I see more bigger fish get caught when you use rotation during the outgoing to get to where the fish are. I wasn't complaining about BW's being crowded, on the contrary, I accept them for what they are. People show up when they can or want, I don't judge them for getting there 3 hours after slack. I wasn't "making excuses" for them. I simply don't judge others when I don't know their story. When I don't want to deal with people, I don't. I have other spots. Now if it's not the outgoing, then I totally agree you pick your spots accordingly without crowding someone that was there first. I'm all for that. I'm not gonna try to push anyone out during incoming or slack. I'm not gonna stand in line during slack, lol. If I'm there first and the tide isn't pulling, y'all gonna have to wait for the tide to turn for me to move. Then I will gladly get in line for my chance to reel in a keeper size.
  3. To those who criticize the ones who show up late... Put yourself in their shoes! Maybe they just got done pulling a 13 hour shift at work? Maybe they were tending to their kids? Maybe this was the only time this week they got to go because they work two jobs? So they pick a BW because of the certainty there will be fish there because this the only chance to go this week at all? All the while you are lucky enough to have the luxury to have the time to scout for fish? I'm sure this isn't the case for everyone, but it is for someone. If there aren't enough fish in the ocean that you need to hog an outgoing tide at a BW to yourself, you must be pretty damn important is all I'm sayin'.
  4. Solid advice! I would of pushed in someone who jumped in the shoes my 11yr old. Kudos to you for not, lol
  5. Fished last night. Seen a couple good fish come in but like what was stated, fish were picky. Weeds came and went a couple times. Probably gonna take a few nights off and will be back at it hopefully by the weekend.
  6. If you don't like rotations, don't fish them. It's that simple. To claim a PUBLIC property at the end of a BW during an outgoing tide all to yourself is ridiculous. And if you try to, then you probably deserve what comes to you, lol. I've met a lot of great guys standing in line at several BWs. When you get a group that knows what they are doing it's painless. When I'm sick of it or find it not worth the wait I bail. It's that easy.
  7. Thanks for the PM BadMojo, I'll give them a call and hopefully I can find the rightful owner. I couldn't see leaving it there or throwing it away.
  8. Found one free diving fin on a SoCo beach. If you lost it and can identify it, it’s yours.
  9. Seriously...this is the only reason I don't have one!
  10. I'm hearing that from a lot of people too!
  11. It still baffles me when I find someone on the rocks in plain boots or sneakers. Sorry to read this tonight.
  12. Cool vid! I want to buy a drone so bad!
  13. When I leave this world, I want to go peacefully in my sleep just like my grandpa did...Not screaming and crying like everyone else in the car!
  14. The best access is probably by boat.
  15. Thanks for the tips. Next time I'm in Westerly I'll swing in and take a look. Sorry if I brought up a sore subject. Honestly I had no idea, I just liked the plug. Now I know.
