  1. Isn't money the driver for over harvesting ? No catch should be for sale. Seems like another distraction to play around the edges. We don't enforce the laws we have now on limits, size and snagging, etc. So without effective enforcement and punishment that fits the crime, forget it. These things probably start in the home, anyway, just the opposite of some of the heartwarming hunter/fishing examples we see often on these pages. Still, Merry Christmas !
  2. Sherman takes me back some into 1964 and just married: FIRST DEER in my life in NH with my new Marlin RC 336 30/30 lever action with a Williams peep sight, and she saw the deer first ! Every deer since in NY with my 1964 REM 870 Wingmaster 20Ga 3" mag pump. Shortened smooth bore with a Polychoke on slug. A Williams peep sight for the Brenneke Magnums. A light gun in any woods with silky action and a tack driver way out there. Mrs loves her Winchester 12 Ga. pump 1300XTR Mag. with 2-3/4 Brenneke. ALL GOOD, but only hunt uphill now, with some wicked nice memories.
  3. Too set in my ways to change now: since 1954 I have babied my outboard my cylinders for the winter this way, starting then with my 1.1 and last week for my 1986 Yamaha 40EL. I have this antique little trigger operated half pint oil can filled with whatever clean 2-cycle oil left over. with the plugs out and the engine tilted up, I squirt too shots toward the upper cylinder wall and let it sit a couple of minutes then lower the engine and turn it over at least one cycle. I replace the plugs and will change them out in the Spring. I have never had engine issues in the head doing this so I think I may get away with not making the change. I know, TMI, Dave
  4. And does the Public serve their Government....Yeah....as has been said, " a Republic if you can keep it "
  5. I agree with Frogger and Prof T.........and am compelled to offer how much simpler the mask issue is. I grew up knowing that someone who thought and knew more than I did was, for the moment, the Expert. Sort of a KISS thing, I guess.
  6. Hi, Kayslay...need help...you posted pic on Nov. 18, 2019 with your Striker 7CV. I have a new Striker Plus 7CV with the GT20-TM ducer. Would you share what setting you used for the pic you show in the post. I think I should be able to pick up my jig at depth an have as large a pic as you get. I was set at Chirp 77 full screen. Thanks, Dave

    It looks like I can put in my 17 Sea Nymph OK with what is there at the moment, or is it very shallow at the end of fhe short pad there ? Anyone do this ? I gotta go...pushing 80 here and not much in the mood to stay in the driveway ! Thanks, Dave
  8. I love this thread.....especially hearing that so many good guys hate eating the fish. I bet they feel the same way about the caviar and pate'. Life is goooood !
  9. The older I get , the more I wish for a longer season....just don't enjoy 3 days in a row. I had a beagle named SUSHI, and she retrieved bunnies from deep in the thorns. God, I miss that girl.
  10. Good morning Rol-man......I prepare a product known as Gravlox which is a Scandinavian version. I usually bring it to a Holiday party especially New Years. It is really an easy prep, and the next time I get to it, I'll have you here to see. Or you can see the recipe on page 17 in the Silver Palette Cookbook ( ? edition ). I use Wegman's salmon fillets about 5 pounds total cut from the center section for good fit. They say serve with Vodka or the better matched Aquavit , both nice but a little tough at breakfast. ROL, do it for the upcoming Holidays and they will not forget you ! I am close by , so let me know how she goes. Have fun Dave
  11. WOW, Speedy.....would you tell what bow and scope you used. Pushing 80 here and time for a change to something a little quieter. Thanks, WOW Dave
  12. WOW...even from the pic....Looks like a TRAGEDY ready to go ! I would bet you are way too light on tongue weight. I would go to a truck weigh station and see what your boat with all your gear with gas weighs. Then determine the correct tongue weight for this load. Then make sure the wheel/tire capacity is correct for the boat as loaded . If all ok, then I bet you will have to move the boat up the trailer. If you can, move the winch up enough to get the rear overhang down....way too much for my comfort even as regards your transom support, though just a guess. Boy, I'd feel great to see your adjustments later ! Good luck.
  13. Marine ply is for me...what thickness did you use. You are doing really good work. Dave
  14. Well, Champ......looking at those two bambies, I think you may have at least come close to getting your perfect doe much earlier. Wow, many memorable time ahead ! Christmas gift...ya-ah
  15. Retired antique canoe restorer needs a 3/8" plywood bottom refinished on a 14' Showboat . Custom designed and built by me in 1960. would appreciate knowing of someone in the FLA who is " show Minded " to do the work. I can do it , but a little worn these days. Thanks for any recommendation. Dave
