Nice fish!

Benny I might be wrong, but on the pic above, is that a 706?, If you have to use the greenies, put that one on a shelf and use a 704, better yet a 714-716 should do just fine for you.
Those are also valuable, make sure they're not in excellent shape. :)

I've caught my fair share of Brooks, Rainbows and smallies.
It all brings back great memories.
I hope you are getting to eat some of those Trout. They are fantastic.
My Baits are usually Blackfin Tuna, Stingray, Bonita, Mullet and whatever else is swimming around in the gulf.
I can't wait for my shot.
Be well,
Daron

Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Shark Hunter on April 28, 2017, 10:40:56 PM
It is a 12 hour drive for me and that is enough.
I know what I need to do.
My biggest obstacle is getting a 65 lb Kayak to the Beach and back.
I can carry everything else by myself.
I could carry the Kayak too it wasn't 14' long and some steps to deal with.
I'm giving it my all this year.
That is all you can do.
It will be a good time, no matter what happens.
It is my shot, at a true beast of the oceans, the top predator of the food chain.
If I succeed, I will be triumphant,
If I don't. I will try again.
I am prepared for either outcome.
It is all just a gamble. I'm ready for my shot. ;)
I am well prepared, Its just a game I will win eventually.
A ten foot shark from shore is not too much to ask for. ;D

Benni and Marlo know how to catch fish.
You guys keep on that River and keep the pics coming.
Please give John any trade secrets you have.
If I'm on the Beach, Looking to catch Sharks. This guy is in his element.
Stream fishing is tough.
The Stream I fished when I was a kid was loaded with fish.
You had to watch for snakes, but we always caught fish.
Mid Summer would lock the fish into pools.
It was great fishing and they weren't going anywhere.
That Stream has long silted out.
It was called Arnold's Creek. Good Times back then.
It dumped into the Ohio River 50 miles or so downstream.
I always tried to choose topwater lures.
When the creek was raging, I would drop a small rapala and let if float down a long ways before reeling it in.
There were also Gar there. I never hooked one. They would try to eat the lure, but the hook couldn't be set in their small toothy jaws.

Post by: Benni3 on May 31, 2017, 08:26:34 PM

Title: Re: Luck

Benni,
I don't doubt your expertise for one minute, but John is fishing a shallow stream.
Nothing that dives is going to work in this application.
Personally, I would use shallow rapala's and some rubber worms or grubs.
Some live bait under a clear bobber would be my last resort.
I would just try to keep it on top if possible.
Maybe some small hula poppers.

That corn ballyhoo rig looks like a trade secret. ;)
Corn! I didn't have any Corn!


Title: Re: Luck
Post by: ChileRelleno on May 31, 2017, 09:14:12 PM
Thanks Benni,
I'll try the corn, maybe the bobber-n-fly.

Been having luck with Joe's Flies and Rooster Tails, both tipped with red wriggler worms.
I think they strike and hold on longer with the worm tippet.
Hard to tell a strike from a rock sometimes...  LOL!
Challenging fishing for'shur.

haha,,i catch and release only on the river,,,I go by all the rules and regulations but i have the game wardens call on me all the time and the police two times this year but sergeant early likes to striper fish too ,,, so when marlo has his pocket police scanner I know my fan club called  :D and I will try the Velveeta cheese


Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Shark Hunter on June 01, 2017, 07:53:22 PM
Now I know why Marlo packs that scanner. ;)
17 small trout would make quite the feast.
Just gut them and cook them whole.
Your adventures are going to make me get into freshwater again.
I haven't did it in several years.
I just work and wait to hit the beach.
I am planning on a four trip season next year instead of two.
That will be 9,000 miles on my truck.
That is the only reason I bought it. ;)

Hi Benni,
stopped by Salem for our evening meal, gas and to stretch our legs.
Went looking for you and Marlo, no luck at your local bridge.  
Water looked good. 
But DANG! Talk about heavily pressured fish, fishermen everywhere.

That is funny to see John at your local spot.
Wish you guys could have hooked up.
Would have been great for a photo op.


Title: Re: Luck
Post by: ChileRelleno on June 03, 2017, 07:06:51 PM
Will do Benni,
next time I come through I'll holler at ya.
My younger son was wanting you to hook him into a nice Bow.
The wife was saying "I gotta pee, and I'm not peeing in the bushes".
All the kids were hungry, and that Asian buffet on the South end of Main St. ain't bad.

Yeah Daron, I hoped to luck out and see him down there, what with it being a beautiful Saturday late afternoon/evening.
And even if he wasn't around, it was too good an photo-op adventure to not go.

I used 'Google Earth' to track down his favorite bridge.
Not many to begin with and only one with a walkway going under it, so easy to spot it in a relatively small place like Salem/Roanoke.


Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Shark Hunter on June 03, 2017, 07:32:08 PM
Your wife is gonna kick your butt if she sees this. :D
My trips to Florida are only 700 miles. That is enough for me.
My truck is such a gas hog, It stops before hunger or bodily functions come into play. ;)
I usually have to make three stops at minimum.
When I'm trying to reach my destination, I just drive like a mad man.
It usually ends up being a 13 hour drive with 5 stops for landmarks and peach farms.
I can't wait to drive it again. ;)
Be safe John.

LOL... A couple of earnest looking fisherman here and there, a bunch of weekend warriors and two clowns in kayaks with one hooked into the others yak.
The yak clowns were creating enough noise/ruckus to shut down the bite for a 1/8 mile either way.
And everyone was giving them the stink eye.  >:(

They just quit and beg their wives for gas money.
Somehow, I don't think I could get away with it, Or live like that.
When I retire, I will have money rolling in from working all my life.

Benni,
That 9/0 set up is huge for what you are fishing for. It also looks quite nice.
I wish I could find the picture, but the funnest fish I ever caught was a 12 to 15 lb carp on an ultra light with 4 lb test on Dale Hollow Lake.
It was a bad drought that year and the water was way down. Caught on an nightcrawler from my boat on shore.
I just wore him down.
I need to go fishing.

Benni, not exactly sure what my favorite mganaflex is because mostly the numbers are gone and I  recognize the blanks and wraps, plus  there are boat rods and then Hatteras Heavers.

I did score a really sweet IGFA 50 this week for $36....in great condition, aluminum butt, decal intact, all Aftco roller set. I'd have bought a six rod stand if they'd had it. I put a 9/0 on it and it had perhaps a little much flex for 80 but looks period correct and sure would be fun.

I don't know of any snake with molars.
Snakes don't chew their food, that jaw is in my opinion mammilian and most likely rodent.

Don't care too much for the type of humanity expressed by big-time politicians(behind the scenes), but I might be able to get behind Tim Kaine based on his record, he really seems to have "substance", just to hard to get to know these people as a "persons". I'll be lookin for him in the run-up for the next election cycle.

When I lived in middle Tennessee chicken livers fished below the thermocline was a primary tactic for targeting the hybrids in those big lakes. Many times, I saw livers outfish livebait for hybrids (not stripers though). Cheers!

What's up with the International 50?
that's my lucky stripper rod and I don't know why but it works  :D  just set the drag on 3 or 3 1/2  ;D

you know Benni, I like the way to think and the way you use your big reels, I would never though on using a Int 50 to fish stripers but it looks pretty good on the boat and its better use it on any fish than never use it at all.

you just convince me, I will start using my Van Staal vs275 for fishing baybass and triggerfish LOL, I never use it from the shore cuz its too big for those small fishes and no other fish came to the shore for surf fishing (some are using the VS275 and VS300 for tuna fishing), I normally use my shimano sonora 4000 or my abu 6500 and have a blass on the beach and light tackle, but I think I will be also pretty stocked on get my VS wet from time to time paired with a tsunami airwave 9ft or my 7ft ligther rod

yes the fly fisherman  made fun of me for using cheap gear ,,,,so I went with  penn and I get strange looks all the time  :o but like today  you never know what you will hook and I'm ready for anything  :D and that van staal is very nice and i can't wait to see the big ones you get with that  ;D

One suggestion for removing that pinon gear from the spool. Get two small blocks of balsa wood. Sandwich the gear with the two pieces. Then put it in a bench vise. The balsa will conform to the teeth of the gear. Pull it off. If it's still stuck, place a wooden dowel on the spool shaft and hit it with a hammer.

Those are movable reel seats Bennie.  You can put them on anything.  Someone hand-tied the jetty wrap handle and took the time to make the turk's head stops.  The blank is Calcutta cane.  You don't often see them with a ferrule like that.  The guides are probably Mildrum.  It was  someone's pride and joy until the tip broke.  Surf rod.  Nice one.

14/0
Based on her arm and hand size. That reel looks too big to be a 12/0 and not wide enough for a 16/0.

Looking at the bearing cup it appears to be a 12/0, but can't really tell from the angle, it might be a 10/0.

Simms makes some great, but expensive, stuff. Payed a small fortune for some cleated-felt-soled wading boots.
Worth every penny. You could walk for miles in 'em, in or odda the stream, and they were like a good pair a hiking boots. No shrinkage, never lost a cleat.
Best fly vest I ever owned was a Simms too.

Simms makes some great, but expensive, stuff. Payed a small fortune for some cleated-felt-soled wading boots.
Worth every penny. You could walk for miles in 'em, in or odda the stream, and they were like a good pair a hiking boots. No shrinkage, never lost a cleat.
Best fly vest I ever owned was a Simms too.
Gfish
your advice on the fly vest it was good  :D I can put everything from my flys to my black barts in this thing  and it has a pocket just for power bait   ;D

What size hooks go on a black bart 11in 295

I would run 12/0 mustard trolling hook in front, and 11/0 in back.  I like tandem hooks rigged with heavy braided cable, and heat shrink to hold them in the desired position.  I like them offset 90 deg on marlin baits, and 180 Deg on Wahoo lures.  A lot of guys run them 180 deg for everything.  You can buy tandem rigs premade, or make your own.

Many of the Kona guys run single stiff hook rigs, where a larger size hook is held in position by heat shrink up the line.  Then a rubber plug is inserted in the back of the lure head that the tube fits snugly into.  This holds the hook in a downwards position with respect to how the lure runs, and the lure will still travel freely up the leader after hook up. 

Google it.

Good bait you have there.

John

Benni,

Good luck on your adventure!

I recommend running you Black Bart Puert Rican prowler on the long corner, or short rigger position, since it has a cupped/jetted head.  The short rigger in calmer seas, long corner if there is some good chop.  It will smoke, dive, and have a medium/wide swimming action.  Run a small straight running bait off of the long center, your biggest loudest bait on the short corner.  Hopefully you find some blacks.

Benny, there's a slough about a half mile to the left (east) of the hotel at the base of a cliff.  If the slough is dumping water into the surf it could be a good spot for snook.  Never been there but fished similar places in El Salvador.

I once saw a group put on a show for the press by releasing some hatchlings.  They were probably loggerheads but can't remember for sure.  Anyway, it was a much smaller group of about a dozen or so people and by the time the first hatchling reached the water they had attracted a flock of seagulls that started grabbing them.  The turtle crew were running around trying to shoo the birds off but the turtles had spread out and some were being grabbed out of the surf.  Then the reporters started helping to shoo the seagulls and the photographers kept on taking pictures and video as everyone else ran around, in and out of the water, waving and yelling.  It got sort of comical by the end.

I really enjoyed the freezing rain on the way to work this morning after chiseling the ice off my windshield.
It froze over again and I had to pull over and let the truck warm up some more.
It is only 29 years old. ;)

Bail spring went out in the pflueger patriarch and the screw broke off  :(  so I grabbed the 430ss and i had to call Scott's for a part 39  :) the rods are 9ft tfo sea runners mh good for fish under 10lb,,,, the 706 is good for strippers,cats,carps,,,, i hope your doing good uncle sal  ;D and not working out in this weather

Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Gfish on March 03, 2018, 08:31:34 PM
One thing 'bout life on a smaller island is the low crime rate. Most local people here drive P/ups and don't seem to worry about leavin a nice 13ft. Ulua rod n' reel in the back, even all night. We never lock our house or car doors('cept the car get's locked in big parking lots,like Wallmart, etc.). And it's less stressful like that, as in:"Aw man, I locked myself outta the house! "Where's my keys!"
However when gone for a month, at our 1st house in a more vulnerable location, they ripped up our new copper plumbing. Addicts!

the tfo 9ft mh and the Suzuki 10ft same size ,,,,tfo weight 7.7oz susuki 7.9oz the susuki has a soft tip that makes it better to cast longer,,,,,casting all the way across the river and side drifting when you get a bite it's a lot of slack to set the hook,,,,the reel is a pflueger patriarch 35 7.6oz and thanks steelfish ;D

Benni3,

I hate to say this but have you ever thought about starting a new thread? I for one will never look through 39 pages of stuff to see what you are talking about.

I'm sorry if this sounds blunt to you, but maybe if you started a new thread maybe others may want to look at it ? I'm sure I would.

Take care and thanks for contributing to this web site. I'm sure I will check out your most recent posts.

Great fight ensued, drag screamin as he made some long runs, and soon I got a crowd around watchin, givin me the usual advice, all of 'em thinkin what I was: onea those famous giant DeSmet Res. Rainbows! 10 min. latter, I land a pretty-silvery lookin, maybe 5lb. carp. Everyone leaves without sayin nothin. I's lovin it! Released that healthy fish with lots a care. Sorry no pics.

Beautiful fish, those hybirds. If I'm not mistaken, Stripers & white bass are in the temperate bass family and the same genus---"Marone" 'er somethin like that. Which'ed mean they can be cross-bred, but the hybird offspring would be sterile.

Fishery managers love wipers.  They are inexpensive to produce, grow quickly, are great sport fish and they do not over-populate.  The stocking density can be adjusted to keep the pond in balance.  But, unlike largemouth, they don't do very well if the only forage is blue gill.  They control crappie over-population though and create better fishing for large crappie.  If the pond has shad or shiners the wipers will really take off.  With aeration they grow even faster.  With aeration you can also use a pellet feeder and not worry about low oxygen.

Only fish I know of that may have the same level of fight as a wiper around here would be a Missourri River Carp.

River carp river fish in general are much noticeably better scrapped than the same caught from a Lake.

Do you eat the carp too Benny?  I took one about that size home for dinner once.  It came out of a brackish water impoundment.  The first meal was disgusting and taste like mud.  Then we tried marinating it and then blackening it.  Taste like spicy mud.  I hear they taste fine from some areas.

Hard to tell from the picture but are you working from a man basket on a crane?  Nice view from up there I bet.
Keep those fish pictures coming. You and Marlo live the life
I was going to comment on the shorts too but thought Iíd give you a pass. Might help you look if you use a knotted piece of rope for a belt, a la jethro bodine

Always hated the man basket,putting my faith in the crane operator. The few times when a 75' bucket couldn't reach. Thankfully I'm old enough that they put me out to pasture. Whatever they pay you you're earning every penny.
Stay safe amigo, those OSHA rules are there for a reason.
Nice fish, you and Marlo are quite a team.

X2, laws enforced by organizations like OSHA, sometimes come after something (or a series of somethings) bad happens. Hope they aren't wantin you to skirt around the safety rules. In a way, OSHA inspections are your tax dollars at work for you.

A boss say to me several years/jobs ago: " to get it all done you're gonna have break some safety rules. If you go by the book and don't get all done, I'll come down on you, mabey fire you. If the company safety inspector catches you, you're on your own". A great mentor this boss, and my all time favorite guy----NOT!

Alright Marlo & Benni! Love me some Channel cats!

My wife retired from a government(county)hospital system. Good patient-care work habits were not, for the most part, the "thing" there. I gathered from her stories, that there were very few employees that could overcome that type of workplace culture to "go the extra mile". One good doctor, nurse, orderly, or CNA can make a big diffrence in the lives of people stuck inna hospitol. Keep it up Marlo!

I never like falling down.
Fortunately, the sand where I fish is very soft because I fall on it about every trip. ;)
It is usually related to too many beers and heavy gear.
Sand socks are slippery in the sand.

Best to you brother.
There is a lake really close to where I live. Less than a 1/2 mile away.
I am going to make it a point to start fishing fresh water as much as possible.
As much as I love fishing the gulf. I need to keep it real. ;)

Benni what monters lurk in the river to go against that 20/0? Falling is bad bad bad!!!

I fished the Jetty down here in South Florida. I'll never forget. I hooked up a nice personal best snook that night. Once we were done we packed up. Thing is we have to walk with our gear (rods, tackle boxes, 5 gallon bucket) on these big jetty rocks. As we know, some parts of the rock are slippery. I fell straight on my sacral bone with everything. It was so bad I got lightheaded and almost passed out sitting. I believer not even a month and I got diagnosed with a herniated disc. I asked the docs if this fall was related and they said no, but I beg to differ. anywho you gotta be very careful....

Do you know the length?  Somewhere there's a formula or table for weight:length of wipers.  I'll have to look for it.  It gets tricky because the length to weight is different for the normal original cross (striped bass female, white bass male) versus the reciprocal cross (white bass female, striped bass male).  Yours is original cross and that's what's usually used for stocking.  Reciprocals are often used for farming.

Would love to hear more of the history of this breeding.  Was it started for sportfishing?  Aquaculture? 
The Santee Cooper lakes in South Carolina were created for hydro power in the 1930's.  Striped bass became landlocked and by the 1950's it was realized they were reproducing and made a popular sport fishery.  In the 1960's they started producing fingerlings in a local hatchery for release into the lakes.  Hatchery personnel would capture striper broodstock by electrofishing in the spring and a few white bass would come up with the stripers.  In the 1970's they made the first hybrid cross.... more out of curiosity than anything else.  I think Bob Stevens was the head hatchery guy back then and when he left/retired Jack Bayless took over.  The hybrids were found to grow faster than striped bass and larger than white bass.  They started stocking some hybrids after they were found to be sterile.  It worked, and other state fish hatcheries throughout the Southeast started doing it too.  In the late 1970's it was realized that hybrids could be farmed as a food crop and techniques were refined in the 1980's.  Commercial farming hybrids started to catch on wherever the regulations would allow.  One of the early ones was an indoor operation in California run by Steve Surfling.  Stocking for sport fishing continues on a large scale and there are a few commercial farms here and there.  It can be done, but the profit margins were/are slim and it is tightly regulated in most states to prevent wild sport fish from being sold into commercial markets.

The Santee Cooper lakes in South Carolina were created for hydro power in the 1930's.  Striped bass became landlocked and by the 1950's it was realized they were reproducing and made a popular sport fishery.  In the 1960's they started producing fingerlings in a local hatchery for release into the lakes.  Hatchery personnel would capture striper broodstock by electrofishing in the spring and a few white bass would come up with the stripers.  In the 1970's they made the first hybrid cross.... more out of curiosity than anything else.  I think Bob Stevens was the head hatchery guy back then and when he left/retired Jack Bayless took over.  The hybrids were found to grow faster than striped bass and larger than white bass.  They started stocking some hybrids after they were found to be sterile.  It worked, and other state fish hatcheries throughout the Southeast started doing it too.  In the late 1970's it was realized that hybrids could be farmed as a food crop and techniques were refined in the 1980's.  Commercial farming hybrids started to catch on wherever the regulations would allow.  One of the early ones was an indoor operation in California run by Steve Surfling.  Stocking for sport fishing continues on a large scale and there are a few commercial farms here and there.  It can be done, but the profit margins were/are slim and it is tightly regulated in most states to prevent wild sport fish from being sold into commercial markets.

So THIS is why Benni and Marlo are always catching.  I was ready to go find a 20/0 ;D

Thanks for the info guys.

Best to you brother.
There is a lake really close to where I live. Less than a 1/2 mile away.
I am going to make it a point to start fishing fresh water as much as possible.
As much as I love fishing the gulf. I need to keep it real. ;)
I haven't fresh water fished in years.
I have been so obsessed with catching saltwater fish, that I have forgotten my roots.

when your ready to go freshwater fishing let me know I will give you all the tips me and my friends know to help you get the big one ;D

Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Rivverrat on August 03, 2018, 05:24:14 AM
Benni...  love your thread.  Switching line brand is usually a good thing. We can learn from it.

But I have to ask, are you sure the wind knots are the lines fault or maybe something with technique ?

I have found in my case & with most others wind knots come about most times for reasons other than the line we are using.

Wishing to be helpful. I know what little I know from my own frustration & mistakes or some one showing me...Jeff

   Those hybrid stripers are one of my most favorite fish to target. They pull like a freight train, I believe it has to do with their wider "pan fish" profile. They have the little White Bass's profile...but the Striper's size. A 5lb. hybrid on ulralight tackle is a handful. Great fishin' Benni! 8)

Could be lime stone. What ever they are they have a story to tell with those lines & patterns in them. That didnt come about with out cause. I really like looking at rocks when I'm out on the river. Rocks just lay there no one paying them much attention. But they have stories to tell & will tell them to all who take the time. 

Five lined skinks are great to watch also. As they move about on the forest mat below the trees on the rivers bank... Jeff

I'm surprised you were able to tell those were on, after building some muscle on those monsters on your latest trip ;D.

The box is here, but I haven't opened it yet. My wife received it and she said the mailman wasn't happy carrying it ;D


Benni, did you ever check the box the last time I sent it to you? There is a stand and a full set of frame posts going back and forth ;D
(https://i.imgur.com/wwcLSwM.jpg)

I could feel it has zero drag , telling me the ears on the washers are gone. :-\

You wouldn't have been able to catch a minnow as it is now.

I will open it up later on.

I just have to say that I donít know if I have ever seen two more energetic happy guys fishing.  Reading your posts and seeing those smiling faces is some fine entertainment.
Keep up the good work and keep posting your adventures.
  I was reading Sals post on the shredded drag washers, and I was curious about what or how you managed to destroy them?  Then I put two and five together and Sals comment about not wanting to spoil your Luck, thatís when I remembered your thread ďLuckĒ,  and well 90 minutes later and skipping pages by fives until I got up to page 63,  well I knew it would be near the last posts you made but I didnít want to just skip over everything so I went by 5s, and read the page, etcetera until I got here!  Man oh man Iíve watched videos of those Goliath groupers yank people right out of their shoes.  Do you know what your drag pressure was?  Broke two rod holders and shredded the drags.  Best torture test I have read.

thank you very much dave :) the 20/0 sal tested at 68pounds as a 16/0 and I did not max the drag out ::) but close :D the drag washers shredded that's ok,,,because I got to test the 9/0 out on two big ones and it did great,,,Ebay shark rigs not so good,,,but I did get the small one :D  I had a blast all daylong and I'm going back  ;D

I hear that Brother!
It has been hotter than Haiti here.
In the 90's with heat indexes over 100.
The grass still needs cut and I have other chores mainly with working on vehicles.
I'm not paying anyone else to do it.
A lot of sweating and a little bit of cussing gets it done. ;)

 Like I said above the 140 is the same. Uncle in Alaska runs two 140's with jets & he's been running them like he stole them for years. It's the same with most anyone who has these outboards. All getting an insane amount of hours on them.... Jeff

I ran a 150 Evinrude for 20 years.
It was the best. It was on an Arrow Glass Fish and Ski prototype.
17 footer.
Cruise at 50mph was no problem.
I would drop the wife and kids off before refueling and it would do 70 with nothing but the prop in the water.
Good times.

Cool! A garden spider? The Islands have similar lookin "cane" spiders that can be a little larger than an adult's hand. They sometimes get into houses lookin for cockroaches and other house bugs. Not to afraid of humans, but very fast and hard to chase down. Centipedes are the worst here. They like clothing and especially bedding. Been bit once while asleep, lotsa pain, swelling and eventually numbness. Could'a been worse, but he got my wife first!

In all my years of freshwater angling. I think the time I caught a 10 lb plus carp on 4lb test line was the most fun I ever had.
It was at dale hollow lake during a severe drought. The lake was way down.
Nightcrawler on the bottom.
I was in my 20's then and I played that fish right to the boat.
We were on the shore deadlining.
Good Times. ;)

Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Tiddlerbasher on November 09, 2018, 05:38:04 AM
Alex:

In Greek mythology, a phoenix (/ˈfiːnɪks/; Ancient Greek: φοῖνιξ, phoÓnix) is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again.

Associated with the Sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again.[1] There are different traditions concerning the lifespan of the phoenix, but by most accounts the phoenix lived for 500 years before rebirth.[2] Herodotus, Lucan, Pliny the Elder, Pope Clement I, Lactantius, Ovid, and Isidore of Seville are among those who have contributed to the retelling and transmission of the phoenix motif.

In the historical record, the phoenix "could symbolize renewal in general as well as the sun, time, the Empire, metempsychosis, consecration, resurrection, life in the heavenly Paradise, Christ, Mary, virginity, the exceptional man, and certain aspects of Christian life".[3]

The Phoenix is just a mystical creature.
I do see red tail hawks and they are supreme in their domain here in Kentucky.
Their talons are quite impressive.
I saw one on the picnic table in the back yard just a few days ago.
They will shred a dove, rabbit or squirrel in a few seconds.
I respect them and let them do their will.
They are raptors in my opinion.
The supreme killer. Fast, efficient and very effective.

They're neat birds.  Red-Tail are big, but when we lived on the East Coast a Red-Tail killed our full-grown peacock.  About four times it's weight.  The hawk took one swipe at it and when the peacock ran instead of turning to fight the hawk finished it off.  I've heard they will take out a cat but have never been fortunate enough to see it.

the hawks are very cool,,,,Virginia stocked them to kill the doves at the airport here :) but some things around here they just appear over night ??? The gold fish was the funniest,,,,pods of 15 or 20 4in long in different places,,,the blue herons got them all in 4days :D ;D

Yer tiger actually looks fascinated by those videos. There must be a Fall overturn goin on in your lakes( chilled dense surface water sinks below the warmer layers, and the more nutrient rich water comes up the to sunlit zone). It can really turn the fish on before Winter stratifies everything.

Some of the best eating fish I ever tasted was brook trout caught in the mountains of Colorado.
I was a lot younger then, but the memory stays with me.
My Uncle worked for the airlines and flew me out for free.
We hiked two hours each way to get to them.
The water was so cold, but it was worth it.
Great Job Benni. ;)

 Call them turkey buzzards here in Kansas. They are primarily scavengers.

Now the other bird Benni showed earlier that Steve thought may be a Screech owl is a hawk. Its marking & wing tip color have me stymied.

Would very much like to see some pics of this bird... Jeff

Benni,
My Middle Son, Mike went fishing this morning with his 6 wgt.
He is married now, and he makes me proud. Has a young Daughter of 18 months and feeling all the pressure of being a responsible Adult.
It was in the upper 30's with cold ass rain. (I was in bed)
He was looking for Crappie, but caught a few Largemouth.
I have fished in the cold and rain many times.
It comes down to choice for me. Many small ones, or one Big One!
Maybe I need to get my priority's straight. ;)

"I feel your pain" Benni. Skunked for about the 5th time in row on the South side of the Island, today. Can't wait for Spring. It's been unseasonably cold here at night and early AM.
 Let the wind blow the yak way out while jigging the bottom, heard some splashing behind me---Dolphin fin on the surface bout 25ft away?, no!, too big and not commin up for air---BIG SHARK!, doin I don't know what on the surface. 5mph wasn't fast enough gettin outta there. Kinda fun in a scary way.
 Saw only 1 Humpback whale. Even their numbers are way down, this year.
Ah well, so nice gettin out away from the landlubbers, but I really wanna hear my clicker screamin again soon!

I too have to work with some unsavory individuals.
We are a Union Shop, and when you have been there as long as me, there comes a respect when you get to call the shots.
I work with over 200 people every day.
You either fit in the machine, or your on the outside looking in.
It is all about teamwork.
I wouldn't say I love my job, but I thrive on getting things done right. ;)

But then you'll lose all the new "character" that appeared when you fixed it! ;)

I know this doesnt apply to Benny and others that fix their own reels only, but I try to dont show or have that kind of "character" with JB weld or McGyver fixes on my personal reels and rods cuz that will scare possible customers LOL.

PS: I do like Mcgiver fixes


there's more steps to the fix,,, ;) but that's ok,,,,if you YouTube daily affirmation with sturt smally that's how I will get through this,,,,,,, ;D

Cool!
Benni, are you gonna go uptown someday with flyfishin equip.? Looks like you got a good trout/char thing goin on in that river.
When I first converted many years ago, I said " man! I'm makin my trout fishin harder on myself on purpose?" but gradually, I started learnin and catchin a few, and found it to be much more self-satisfying whenever I's able to score. It was even a funner way to fish, when I couldn't get bit. Then about 2yrs. latter, that movie "A River Runs Through It" came out and alotta people, especially yuppies, started showin up everywhere I liked to go in Oregon and Calif. Had alla best stuff, guides with 'em sometimes, but there were more'n you could shake a stick at! Thankfully, I knew how to hit the wilderness, backpackin.

12 step program to avoid losing a fish on light line and small hooks

1. get a fishing net
2 to 12. read point no. 1

I think they might be German Brown trout. Also, they don't seem ta have that hatchery/raceway look with wear on the fins like the Rainbows. Wild ones?


Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Swami805 on March 25, 2019, 08:31:38 PM
I noticed how clean they looked too, clean fins and sleek like they've been off the trout chow for awhile. Don't look like browns to me though.


Title: Re: Luck
Post by: Tiddlerbasher on March 26, 2019, 02:13:29 AM
Browns can have a variety of markings - particularly black and orange/red 'dots' that vary in number. Thay can be almost pure silver (with virtually no spots) to heavily dappled. Yours Benni look like wild browns to me.

I would offer the outrageous statement that, unless folks just aren't giving reports...Benni and the Butt-Man are putting up more fish than the rest of us combined.....i did look at baits in my holding tank today, I saw the dock, rigged four rods, and cleaned part of the boat.

   Like Benni I fish most every day. So busy just never thought to post about it. My fishing is generally mixed with firing rounds down range & other stuff.

Good on ya, with small man, Hoss. Maybe you got HIM hooked...on fishing!

Went out today and finally GOT THE SKUNK OFFA ME! A little Barracuda and an Amberjack. No pictures + the AJ was only about 3 lbs. The AJ's here can reach 100+ lbs., so I won't start a thread. Still proud that I got 'em though, cause I hada go down to about 300 ft. jigging a spoon, quite aways off shore.
 The first time I've ever seen this; from about 75 ft. down, before I saw 'em, bubbles started commin up. Either he found a way to expell the swim bladder pressure, or it burst, though I didn't see evidence of damage when I gutted him. With all the deep dwelling bottom fish I've gotten off the mainland coast, their eyes bulging out and stomachs protruding out of their mouths, I've never seen that before.

Benni,
I'm pretty sure, any fishing advice these guys give you goes right in the toilet with a chuckle after the flush. ;)
I Vision you as I was back when I was young. I lived to fish, and knew how to do it without any advice.
It doesn't matter if you are in Tennessee or ten buck two, you know how to get it done. ;)

You can have Both Benni.
No Party Girls, Just my wife.
Been on the beaches of Florida for a week now.
Switching up my game. Going with powerful spinners and casting from shore.
I have caught a shark every night. just not big ones, but the small ones are just as dangerous.
I'm three for four and realize now that Bonito are no good around these parts.
It took me a while to learn that.
Mullet, Tuna and Stingray are the only baits that will bring results.
A 5 foot Blacktip is one of the meanest and funnest fish to catch. That is what I'm After. Might put one on the grill before weeks end. ;)

Benny, that picture you showed last week is a koi, not a goldfish.  Koi are just a colored variant of the common carp (Cyprinis carpio).  After a few generations they revert back to the wild carp color.

The one in your photo looks like a utsuri (variety) of koi.  Unlikely to be a high quality or expensive one.  You can buy a small one for five or ten bucks.  The owner did not think much of it either when he threw it in the river. 

All the normal common carp in the U.S. were introduced beginning in 1831 by the Bureau of Fisheries.... as a new food fish!!  What were they thinking??  By the turn of the century the states were already trying to eradicate common carp because the habitat damage.  Now, they're just a fact of life.

Kayakers always get their lighter wet first thing and then all the other paraphernalia is worthless until the flint dries out.

thanks my friend,,,,,, :D a rod repairman comes up to roanoke va on Wednesdays now,,,,, :) so I give him a rod to work on and asked him how old is this"? Maybe over 100yrs old?" and he did a fabulous job,,,,,,, ;D


Title: Re: Luck
Post by: oc1 on June 05, 2019, 03:17:54 PM
Really nice one.  Calcutta cane I believe.  They started importing Calcutta cane from (of all places) Calcutta in the 1850's.  It's probably from late 1940's or 1950's though.  I don't recognize the reel seat they appear to be Mildrum guides. If the original handle wrapping was cotton instead of nylon and the original guide wrapping was silk instead of nylon then I would have guessed 1920's to early 1940's.  Nylon melts over a flame but cotton and silk burn over a flame leaving a light ash that can be flicked away.  I like the mix of tarred and non-tarred seine twine on the handle.  The turks head are tricky to tie but pretty common on deckhand-style rods.

I was about to ask you if you had gotten the boat wet yet...nice fishing!


But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get a safety line around that Driftmaster on the teal 9 with Sal's handle- you've got it sitting below the reel and one of those flatheads will take it away from you! I have a near mint one and it is in the top couple of my favorite reels.
