    They weren't the prettiest but they sure did catch fish

    I really only knew Mike a short time. He taught me a lot and was very generous with his knowledge and home made plugs. His pencils were very productive. Mike is probably mid-60's. I think he's a little younger than me.... He did keep a lot of BS going on this forum. Maddening to many and hysterically funny to the rest of us!

    Happy Birthday RHM. Enjoy the day from your favorite rock!
  4. Such a crazy productive spot once you figure out exactly what bait you should be using and exactly when the fishing is primo..........takes a long time to figure out though.................and it ain't easy.................
  5. There's a kayak store/marina in Niantic, CT that sells the full Hobie line and will put them in the water for you to try.
  6. I had a couple of Outbacks in my 50s & 60s and there's nothing like them. There's plenty of room, the seat is comfortable, and the back/forth pedal motion is very easy to deal with. As far for being "fast and dry".....well, how fast do you really need to go anyway and kayaking is a water sport so expect to get wet in any kayak. I would suggest that you make loading and unloading as simple as you can so that it never becomes a PIA to use your kayaks. I got a trailer (we had 2 kayaks) and launching and retrieving were absolutely simple. Car topping an Outback is difficult no matter what kind of a rack you have and if you have an SUV you need to bring a ladder or two because of the height. Kayak fishing is a perfect way to spend many days during the mid-Spring - late Autumn.
  7. You don't need anywhere near that much light. When those extra bright lights hit you in the face, it doesn't just ruin your night vision, it hurts like hell. Try being a 68 year old man and see how much light you need........................ daylight is barely enough!!! ..but I do my best to keep it down low.......
  8. I also braise, but after they've finished cooking I remove them from the liquid and rest them overnight. The liquid goes into the fridge and next day I pull all the fat off the top (there's always plenty!). Then I reduce on the stove, adjust the seasoning, and put the meat back in until 165F.
  9. Is that photo the actual horse.....or just the saddle?
  10. I'm not tryin' to be a wise-guy......especially on my first post above. In my opinion, fly-fishing is a major PIA. Yes! I know many people love it......but head on over to the Saltwater Edge and speak to them. They have world-class fly guys coming in there day & night, and some may be teachers/guides that can help you out. It's called "fishing", and not "catching" for a reason.........but after 6 years you've gotta' change your approach. Tight lines....keep the faith....you'll catch..........and you'll love it and be "HOOKED!!!"
  11. After 6 years of nothing I'd probably chalk it up to operator error.........
  12. it looks like selling the wood that was taken out of the area should pretty much pay for the land purchase.,,,,,,,,......what a S-Load of trees!
  13. What EXACTLY is going in at Oatley's? Can't quite figure out if it's gonna' be low-income housing, an amusement park, an East Coast Grand Canyon white-water-rafting experience, a cemetery for the indigent, a gargantuan steak house featuring standard-quality beef, or a trailer park.......................
  14. Flylike A Bird has given the best advice. Get the biggest and best WheelEZ wheels and build your own. It may not be the simplest but this will be the cart that's better than all the others. It's the wheels that make the difference!
  15. Awright............awright............so anybody who knows me understands that Mrs. isn't such a great cook. But the rest is true. I swear it!
