A good weekend turned sour

7 posts in this topic

My fishing partne and good friend Chris and I went out of town on Saturday morning and had one of those days most only dream about. We caught over 70 bass total. Over 20 of them went over 4 pounds, and there were counless 3 and 3 1/2 pounders. Very few under 3 pounds. Just a blast!

Afterward he and I went over to my rlatives to stop by and say hi. We were only there for maybe an hour, when I realized that my cousin and Chris had left. Then I got a phone call from them saying the were in accident. My cousin rolled his truck going about 60mph. He wasn't hurt, but Chris was ejected.Landed about 35 feet from where the pick-up ended up. I was very happy to see him talk to me when I walked up. He didn't even break a bone!!! Lucky to be alive. He says he can't wait to get out and go fishing again. He can't hardly move right now from the beating he took, but when he can, hopefully we can pick up where we left off!

Be safe out there!

It is rare to survive an ejection like that. Glad to hear he is ok. Someone was looking over him that is for sure.

    • As the Chronicle reports, Pelosi spoke out Tuesday, essentially begging people to stop talking about third-party candidates and messing up the polling, saying that a narrow victory in the general election "would deprive Hillary Clinton of a big mandate that I think she should have going into the White House and that would be helpful as to how we go forward."   This is just how Del, D2E, Hillary, Donald, and Nancy Pelosi feel about 3rd party candidates.  Nothing personal.  
    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
