Re: Mend-it glue drying up

If it’s gelled you’re done, you’ll never ungel it. That being said, I make my own mendit using a 1:1 ratio of acetone and clear PVC pipe cement. I get the exact same results (strength, flexibility, etc) as with the real stuff. A couple of rules to remember if you’re going to go this route ... first,...

Re: Automotive Observations

As far as safety. Generally a current sub compact is probably safer than a 2 ton sedan from the 60s or 70s. I say that without any facts at my finger tips but there is a much bigger emphasis on safety now. So that is my opinion and yours may be different. Spot on. For the longest time there was a m...

Re: Automotive Observations

There was a fantastic documentary on PBS some years ago that told the story of the big three's fall and the rise of Japan in the automotive world. In a nutshell it told the story of how Datsun (which would become Nissan decades later) introduced it's first vehicles here in the late 1950's primarily ...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Big Black Drum have moved up and started tailing on the rock piles. I don’t normally fish for them, but sightfishing giants like this can be fun. 1/16oz jig with 3” swimbait on my 843c Conquest/Stile SS put the heat on them. It’s fun to see how many times you can turn them when they get moving :lol...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Because of the unstable and unseasonably cool weather it's been a tough finding the big 'uns this season so far, so I've been doing a lot of ultralight & BFS fishing. One lake in particular I fish is an excellent lake for this because of the large variety of fish. You truly never know what will bit...

Re: BFS Topwater Fun

Nice =D>

My topwater game is pretty much non existent ... It's a blast when it does work out though. I really need to work on that.

Re: Let's eat !!!

I think this thread is going to cover all of the seven deadly sins as it plays out. I think I already commited three. Random thoughts.. 1. You would never know you were in NJ judging by those trees in your juice pan. 2. First glance at the title of the thread made me think it was authored by Golden...

Let's eat !!!

Who's up for some baby backs ? ... Baby backs with the silver skin removed. Slathered with yellow mustard (it's a good glue for the dry rub and adds a subtle vinegar tang) ... the rub is salt, pepper, garlic, chili powder, smoked paprika and ginger. Into the Weber kettle that's set up for a long low...

Re: Do You Have A Favorite Cheap Rod?

13 Fishing Omen Black 6' 10" ML casting rod. This was originally an Australian market only bream rod that was hard to find here in the states. It originally retailed for around $100 about 4-5 years ago. Out of nowhere it popped up on Amazon for $58 back in 2016 and I immediately jumped on it knowin...

Re: Favorite small spinnerbait

The SK Rocket Shad is a decent bait made much better with a few minor upgrades. The first thing to go is that piss poor stock double hook. Hook a decent fish on only one side and chances are it will straighten out and pull through. I opted for a 2/0 inline single hook attached to the frame with a sp...
