    A 5 weight is my go to also. Good all around rod for trout and warmwater fish. Only thing I have found in Nevada you need anything bigger was for Northern Pike and I like my 8 for that.I have caught Pike on my 5 but those bigger ones ,30-40 inchers, stress the 5 too much. And they can pull you around if your in a tube.Heck, I have even had them move me around on my pontoon also.That 8 also is good for larger carp which are pretty good fighters . All toooo much fun! We have a so called "trophy" waters here where I am at now in Tennessee but what they think are trophy fish are just decent sized trout for Nevada. You know those 16-18 inchers. Go figure.

    Used to take that rope sparkies use to pull line with and tie it to my float tube and the bumper of the truck and go out fishing there. The winds can get pretty good out on that pond and I have had to rope myself back to shore a couple of times .I tried that ladder fishing there also but had better luck out on the tube. The boat was good with the downriggers going but not the same as flyfishing for those cuts.
  3. Spring Fever

    The weather has been so nice here I went for a wander on the hill and found some winter oyster mushrooms, Now I got the bug and can't seem to be able to wait for actual spring so I can hopefully find some morels. Which raises the question of how many of us here go shrooming or get side tracked out hunting to find some good eating shrooms? Tennessee here reminds me of Washington with the trees and all and what seems to be an abundance of mushrooms. Well eastern Tennessee anyways. Was told I have ginseng on the property also.I have never looked for or seen said plant but maybe I will look and hopefully find some just to say I have. Anyways, My curiosity has me wondering how many here go out and look for mushrooms?
  4. How important is this to do?

    Do they break in new rebuilt race engines? If it shoots like crud ,clean it,if it still shoots like crud..get rid of it. Never really noticed any differance so called breaking in a barrel on any of my comp guns as opposed to just shooting them.Maybe I have been lucky over the years but good barrels and good gunsmiths negate that type of stuff. And the boxstock guns I use regularly have shot great right from the get go.Even my little 17 Rem.Which has a lot of ammo run through it still shoots better than my ability to shoot it. Heck, some of my guns even shot great fire forming brass and you would never think that would happen. But I am lazy by choice so there ya go.
  5. Took Mom fishing at Goleta pier

    I was there in 1967, well, that was the year we moved up to Longview, Washington. We lived up in Mission Hills and Dad was working Vandenburg. The coyote and bobcats were pretty easy pickings back then and I called my first mtn lion there also. Went back there many, many years later and the place didn't really look like it changed a whole lot. Some very good memories from that place growing up.
  6. Took Mom fishing at Goleta pier

    Grew up sorta in Lompoc. Went to high school there anyways. Remember days fishing off the pier in both Gaviota and Goleta. Just had to say it brought back some fond memories.And good for your mom.Best enjoy her while she is still with you.Those memories are lasting.
  7. She does better than me

    That's way cool. That fish is almost as big as she is. Had to have been a classic Hemmingway struggle to get it to shore.
  8. daughters first deer

    Beautiful animal and kudos to your daughter. I know a lot of grown up (?) men and women that have tried for years to score on something that nice. And she gets one right off the get go. Makes ya just bubble with pride doesn't it dad.
  9. new rod

    Good luck with the "minimal" cost hobbies. LOL
  10. New to me rifle

    Be careful where you drop that jar of honey.LOL.I can't believe I just posted that. Bad me.
  11. New to me rifle

    You will like that 260. I have one in a mod 7 rem and it has served me well on antelope and mule deer. Easy shooting and works just fine in the 300-500 yard shots on antelope the mule deer are close in shooting but seemed to kill each one it shot. Good round.
  12. 45 acp carbine

    Got to love your state and how they can take a perfectly good gun and trash it with all those stupid laws to make it feel good safe.
  13. Lead Free 22 LR - Not looking good

    In your feel good state I bet you money ,marbles or chalk that it won't be long til they tell you not to shoot lead out of those airguns. If it has to do with any kind of gun or hunting your state seems to think that it is evil and civilised people don't do those things. afterall, you can go buy your meat in stores where no animal was harmed.LOL. But just wait.As screwed up and brainwashed as people are in Commifornia it won't be long.
  14. Pulled pork and mac and cheese

    I hear what you are saying. Gimping around just ain't much fun. Glad to hear you usually do make your own. Really adds to a well qued pork butt. Got the daughter flying in today and guess what will be started on the Q tomorrow morning. Yep..Do love to tend the smoker. Since moving here to Tennessee I have a lot of hickory on the property and BBQ is a fairly popular thing here.Can't imagine why lol. Looking forwards to Memphis in May if I am lucky enough to go.
  15. Pulled pork and mac and cheese

    Looks great but have you ever considered making your own buns? Easy and sooo much better than anything out of a store..Walt
