Slump Buster

7 posts in this topic

Well sort of......

Been on a dry spell lately and it sure was nice to remove my own hook from a fish for a change last night.

Still haven't been able to put a good pattern together on these fish, sporadic and spread out. When you do find a fish though it seems like the same rod gets hit over and over again. We've been referring to that rod as being "in the slot". Now if you are able to cast out and hit "the slot in the slot", you might as well not even put you rod in the holder.......right Aanderud? smile

Back to the slumpbuster, I say sort of because it was only about 15lbs, and as I jumped into my truck to go home, I found an orange colored primate in my passenger seat frown

Well it can't make it any worse. I have had that monkey for a while now and it isn't working for me so I thought I would give him a change of scenery.

Please give him a good home.

By the way, he likes to have his belly rubbed.

He likes his ears rubbed also Darren. Hang him from your rod and good things will happen to you.

Darren, are you bringing the monkey along tonight? Might as well. Last time he was in my boat he was tied to my rod holder. Put him on yours and it could be a whole different story.

I also wanted to mention that if you see a smallish maybe 14 inch tire floating downstream past you, and you decide at the last minute to reel in fast and cast out really really far to try to catch it, and you just miss by a wee bit -- you might want to reel up some of that line instead of just leaving it there. Because when a fish does hit, having 80 yards of line out takes forever to reel in, and the dinks just aren't worth it. smile

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
