    Have you seen an F22 maneuver? The ability to essentially stop in midair, fall out of the sky in a controlled manner, then kick it in the a$$ and scoot away in the direction of choice is pretty amazing. Guess it oughtta be at $40-60K an hour to fly...
  2. Saw a foot-long copperhead on the street as I pulled in to work this morning.
  3. I'm gonna guess regulations. Like for 16' & over you need a throwable PFD, or something similar. Kinda like why there are 9.9HP outboards.
  4. It's just money & mobility man. When I was a kid in the '60s, fish were purely a welcome, secondary food source. Dad built & stocked our ponds for 2 reasons; to keep erosion from wasting productive soil, and to provide additional food. The fact fish were fun to catch was cool, but not necessary to the equation. The occasional community fish fries with friends and neighbors are some of my fondest memories. Fast forward to 2018, when the NMMA evaluates the recreational boating industry alone at $170B. Can't justify having a $50K fishing boat unless you use it a lot, right? And if you use it a lot you probably can't regularly keep your catch without negatively impacting your future fishing. It is what it is, and it ain't what it used to be.
  5. There's been some interesting research on knots of late, Popular Mechanics version at; https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/math/a30393601/math-knots/ Particularly interesting is the actual research (not particularly the PM article) was focused on explaining the "why" of empirical, observed knot characteristics, rather than predicting superior examples of pure math models.
  6. ^^what Devan said. 62 bridge +/-100 yds is the practical end of a prop's upstream run. With the recent generation trout should be scattered downstream a bit more than normal.
  7. I was in New Orleans 20 yrs ago today. What happens in NOLA stays in NOLA,

    Just funny stuff

    Oh yeah. Back when I was late teens, a buddy (toughest guy I ever knew) and I used to sneak fish his uncle's catfish pond as soon as the ice thawed. He simply refused to touch the guts to bait his own hook. I made a deal that if he'd say "The Creed"* every time he needed to rebait that I'd bait his hook for him. To this day he can still say it (just not in front of anyone else). *My name is ________ ________, I'm a non-fishing, p***y b***h, and I don't like shad.

    If you can't get fresh shad or skipjacks it's the next best thing for blues and channel cat.

    This stuff's kind of like a jar of week-old shad guts... best to keep the lid screwed on tight before somebody kicks it over.

    That's the exact method I settled on. Pretty tasty even on pellet pigs.
  12. Cool. The blue cats should be tearin' it up about now. Quite often right below or behind the stripers, cleaning up the mess...
