Laying low. Beachglass guru and I see him. Big loss around here in my opinion. Hes a character who is a hell of a guy and one of the best all around fisherman Ive ever known.

If you don't have enough hobbies to keep you busy, 

 

While i am 100% for volunteering and giving ones time (and do quite a bit despite being years from retirement), I cannot fathom, simply cannot comprehend the statement quoted above.

If you see him please ask him to reach out to me , I am moving my permanent residence out where he lives and would love to pick his brain about the area and stuff.

What happened to our health care system is a dam share, at one time it was the best in the world.

Back in the day everyone pulled there weight and that's what made things right. Today you got this socialism communist crap that's pulling this country down I tell ya. Socialism works till you run out of other peoples money. Those freeloaders should have to fend for themselves. Make America great again.

 

I feel for you, here you are trying to make a honest living risking your life and your paying through the nose for some freeloader that you don't even know. Them bums should have to go out and fend for themselves like everyone else.

 

You don't even want to know what we are paying up here in New Jersey. I was paying over $1200. a month, they just lowered it to $1,080. a month. Woop-dee-doo....:dismay:

 

God Bless and stay safe up there.

Hi guys 4 years plus of retirement. Loving the fishing here in the Yucatan in Mexico. Here for a short time folks and gone for a long time. Don’t forget that. You are still alive and made it. Many sadly did not. Cheers

Good for you, nice fish in your avatar. I officially retire this coming May. Medicare eligible and the whole nine yards, I'll have no problem adjusting...:)

Well we all know retirement can make us a little nuts, so I'm sure this may not suprise many here. I know @reelfire is already in the loop..  Marty has had some major life changes recently and really needs our support now more than ever... hes been on the fence about making a huge life shift for the past 2 years and finally decided to pull the trigger (or snip the trigger I guess)... thanks to the loving support of his family and friends, he has decided to change a few things about himself that have made him uncomfortable in his own skin for a long time.. 

 

 

This is the last text I got from MARTY.. this pic was taken by his loving wife only moments before he went in for gender reassignment surgery 3 weeks ago...IMG_6168.jpg.b92dca194fe0f849b8ad9e455d50dca3.jpg

 

It's going to be a long road to recovery.  And obviously a lot of uncertainty may be ahead for him.. but moving forward she would prefer that we refer to her as MARY... 

 

Mary will be back on the water this summer with me and @reelfire doingwhat she loves most, catching big bass... I just ask that this community of gentlemen (and women) please be supportive if you see her out in the surf or posting again here on SOL...

 

Thanks all for your understanding.  And here's to wishing Mary a speedy recovery.

Marty says hi to everyone

IMG_62871.jpg

You guys, got to be kidding me. I was laughing my ass off reading this.

 

Marty how the hell can you lay there with a straight face. This has to be the stunt of all stunts. You know TimS is going to get the GPS coordinates off that photo. Make one last video for all the members here before you let some guy get near you with a knife.

 

If your there for a Vasectomy, I think you have support...;)
