  1. Had a good one! Kids and grandkids are all local except for our oldest grandson and his wife. They are roughing it in Puerto Rico. He plays pro baseball and is there through January.
  2. The word blank leads to other words like blankety-blank, etc.
  3. If someone asks what you are doing, hopefully that will be the time you get a run. Let them reel in the carp (hope it's a carp, buff not bad) with you netting it. Place it on the mat, explaining why you have a fin-friendly net and mat. Use the weighing sling, if you have one, and show them the weight. Then challenge them to hang around and try for a new PB! Welcome to GA for your son. Used to live there.
  4. Jennifer, thanks for sharing your memories of your Uncle Bernie. I never had the pleasure or honor to meet him but all the posts show that he was well liked and respected by carp anglers here and abroad. I have the YouTube video on my viewing list.
  5. Interesting but totally devoid of any logic. Example- a comedian said you could get arrested for spitting in a subway in NYC but they don't do anything if you throw up.
  6. How many rods can you put out if trolling for lake trout or salmon?
  7. Nice photos and outstanding fish. The first photo has the sun's rays on the left. Thinking there might be something theological there. A blessing from on High? Thanks for sharing.
  8. Ask and it shall be given. Welcome and good luck fishing the tidal basin. May i suggest joining CAG to get access to get lots of useful information? Youtube is good but On The Bank Training is great! I joined five years ago and never regretted the money...which was well spent in learning carp fishing.
  9. Those rods and the tackle are specialized for carp fishing. Highly unlikely anyone will recognize them but use them for fishing in general. They might wind up at a pawn shop but my guess they will be taken to another town, pawned there or set out at a flea market. Hate that you lost all your carp gear. I wouldn't think your premiums would go up for one incident. My father said locks are for honest people. March, 1970, someone broke into our house and stole 12 guns...three were my grandfathers. Gone!
  10. Nice mirror but all mirrors are nice, IMHO. Nice venue! Our problem in the Tennessee Valley is lakes are drawn down for winter flood control. This leaves either very shallow water or needing to go 100 yards through mud or silt to get to the water.
  11. Canned corn is cooked and soaks in the liquid until opened and drained. I pick the biggest and most solid kernels for the hair rig. The "empty shells" and the soft kernels go into packbait and cage mix. The Japanese angler has kernels that aren't softened by cooking and soaking. Also, his kernels would depend on the stage of development. If the corn was starting to ripen before becoming solid kernels, t hen he has hit onto something. When I lived in a farm, we would pick field corn in its early stages and it would be just like sweet corn. As it developed, kernels hardened into the familiar hard kernels like deer corn.
  12. Been fishing sweet corn for almost five years. Never had any trouble. Rarely get a catfish and don't remember ever getting a bluegill or anything else on it.
