Hello SOLers. I would be long-time lurker PaulG AKA "PG" "G" and sometimes "Magoo"(poor night vision). I am a fishaholic of over 30 yrs. w/past pursuits weighted toward fresh water from ice fishing and leadcore trolling to livelining perch of my mother-in-law's dock;JackNCoke in cup holder. I know the latter has to stop and vow to make o positive impact here when I can.

 

I do a few Cod trips a year and @ least one Nantucket fly in. Locally(Boston area)I mostly harrass schoolies w/red gill water bubble rigs and small white jigs/grubs. Two weeks ago I caught my first Canal keeper on a TimS 3oz SB @ The Aquarium and I now have Striper Fever. Thanks Tim and not to worry as my Magoo-gan Canal tackle(4500 Baitrunner spooled w/30lb PowerPro on an ABCorD-glass 8' Berkley rod)was probably working the smaller keepers in close, I was more right than left and I quickly changed back to the SPRO. What do you think? Was I there? I think that setup will handle a 25 lber. Am I mad?

 

Seriously, I hope you'll excuse my exuberance but I wanted to introduce myself as best I could before Friday as I am hoping someone will want to adopt a Magoogan @ the Ditch fling. I can hold my own w/the smallish keepers but what's a large? Can I still register?

Welcome aboard, PaulG. I tried Ice Fishing a few times. Freezing my tushy off on Lk. Hopatcong in NJ just to retrive a Tip-up caught Pickerel was nobody's idea of fun. But, the vast amount of Hot Rum on hand helped to put a damper on the cold... wink.gif

 

Welcome to non-lurker status..

Thanks for the welcome everybody. I'll register. We're all equals in the eyes of God and I should not be envious of anybody but "CRAZY" ALBERTO ...My boss wants to see me after work and my family is away. The worst

case senario is I am w/out computer to register & have to open the aquarium early for Tim. Seriously I have no clue and look forward to meeting some of you @ the Ditch.-pg
