Nice!!

My 1-1/2 yr old nephew was introduced to grandpa's boat this weekend. Does he ever LOVE motors. smile Went right for the recoil and tried to pull it over. Could only get the rope out 3" or so but I think he knew what it was for.

Yeah, nothing like starting them out young. My father in law & I have been joking about setting some record for the youngest person to boat a 40" fish. We've even thought of how to rig up a trolling settup for him that will be stationary so he will just have to crank the reel. Also, we were thinking of ways we could ramp up the cranking power on reels so he could bring it in. Longer handle, tweek the gearing ratio, etc. He is my wife & I's first child and I just cant wait till he's old/big enough to be my fishing buddy.

congrats. it's always nice to see the young ones interested in fishing, even if they don't know it yet! My 10 month old loves touching and playing with daddie's rods and reels. Mommy tries to tell him that they're "owies," but I let him play all he wants. I can't help but smile when he crawls over to the rods and reels and wants to play with the reels. With the way he reacts when we take him fishing and gets to see a fish, he's definitely going to be daddie's little fishing buddy!

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
