The FX Matt brewery new bottle plant went up in smoke on Saranac Thursday. Called Todd when I drove through on my way to Ilion, from rt 12 you could see the flames as high as 8' off the roof and smoke from Rome, they will rebuild that area. 1500 pepople were there for the opener of Saranac Thursday and no one thankfully got hurt just a couple of the fire fighters had smoke inhalation..

When I was coming home from Ilion at 10:45 the fire was contained but the smoke was still billowing good, feel sorry for the residents around there the smell was awful.

Otis...what HOT bite...you'll never take Todd and I alive wink

Like Todd said...we have been doing a lot of homework with some nice rewards mixed in. Todd is right about the quality of fish...I have boated some truly beautiful fish lately and some nice photos floating around somewhere whistle

Otis, give me a call if you want to get the girls out and do some fishing. Little Lily has become quite prolific with her new ultralight combo. She got a massive male 'Gill the other day that was a little over 11". She was in a fish fighting stance like she had a Marlin on...truly a joyous moment for me to watch her use all the little tricks I have taught her. I may have found my Trap Attack partner for next year laugh

Are you free on weekends now that school is out? Maybe we can plan something for next weekend. Pick a day and let me know. The evening bight has been more productive for me, but I’ll go whenever. How old is Lily? Sounds like she’s following in her dad’s footsteps! Ellie’s seven. She’ll bring all kinds of toys and stuff to keep them busy in case the bite slows down. Todd you in?

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
