World Peace. smile

But i'll settle for Everyone to have a Safe and Happy Holliday Season.

for me... i'd love to find a place that sells the jumbo sized blades in aluminum on Boogermans' ''Musky Buzz'', or Stainless Steel like on Headhunter Tackles' ''Puzzler''. without buying the lures, lol. that would be great. even better would be to get a gross of both of them under the tree laugh

I've got a pile of stuff, but I'm sure i'll be getting most on my own. How about a list of things to have by next year instead?

2 reels

2 rods

300 new baits...(sarcasm :-D)

Boat

Maybe a couple video's would be good for x-mas to help the hardwater season pass.

2 Shimano Calcutta 400TE

1 Shimano Trinidad TN14

Materials I need to finish my boat...

fiberglass stuff - epoxy resin, mats, sealer, etc etc...

Lowrance 28C for bow, 38C for stern/driver side

MinnKota 80 or 101 w/ 60" Shaft... 80 might be better as it'll be 24V

Basically the works... A to Z... lets hope Santa is good this year LOL

Jerkbait rod & reel combo, and a few more lures.

I'd love to add a new boat to the list, but I'm guessing even Santa is tightening the belt these days eek

Garcia Toro, man what a sweet reel. I think that it will get along quite nicely with mu 8' MH Techna AV.

For me, it would have to be more pink and black double 10's, gotta love the color combo. Maybe even a pounder or 2, we'll have to see if the 8 footer can handle it. I'm getting kinda sick of catching 25 inch pike on mag dawgs! And any new DVD's that catch my eye. Sure hope I'm on the nice list!

another rod/reel combo would be great, but I don't think that's coming at all.

I told my sister to go to the store and pick me out whatever bait she thinks looks the best, so that will be fun smile

Hunter, just remember that Santa Clause can give out smaller baits too. wink

Have him throw in some orange and black mepps magnum musky killers! they have been known to work on overcast days on your favorite lake. You might want to throw in some killr eels too!

10,000, when I first saw you pick that bait out I thought you were going to get the bass and hammer handles out of the way for us! Just kidden ya, but I still have a hard time throwing a bait that small. In October, I caught 4 pike under 30 inches in an hour throwing a magnum dawg.

A few years ago those used to be considered pretty big lures ya know. Speed can kill and I'd rather throw those all day than double 10's. I've got some off brand mini bulldawgs that you might like too. A couple ounces lighter and a little smaller and they run pretty good.

That would fit me quite well too!

I'm working on plans for a March bass fishing trip to the Lake Fork area in Wood County, Texas. I'm looking for some more bass gear, maybe a couple of the new Curados, a couple more rods, and some bass lures, soft plastics and jigs, etc......

The Abu Garcia Toro 60 in the lower gear ratio for another low-pro muskie reel is on my "Wish List" as well..... Maybe one of the new Lakewood seat pedestal organizer boxes too, they look nice.

Wants aside, I'll gladly trade all that for a healthy back and a healthy home!

"Best Wishes" to all this Holiday season.

Regards, Chris

    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/          
    • DALLAS TRADES BENN to Montreal !!!!!!   Jordie   for a 4th round pick and some no-name....Jordie was bad and playing worse lately
    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
