  1. I really don't buy into alien influence and advanced mathematics being used in ancient buildings, etc. I believe that with unlimited resources, i.e., slave labor, and time that even without mathematics and only by trial an error, most of those items can be recreated. I recall the discussion of an irrigation system built by mesoamericans that was touted to have the perfect pitch to be able to flood the entire system and that they were able to construct that system without higher mathematics. Then you read that they were in that location for 900 years. isn't it more likely that as they expanded their irrigation system that they would have been able to improve it just by sight and trial and error. Seems more likely to me. The pyramids are a different story, but could still be based upon trial and error since there are lots of older pyramids that are smaller that the ones in Giza. Couldn't those have served as a working model that could be expanded upon? Even a child can make a square by eye and then build upon that base.
  2. Congrats on a nice bass! Hope that she enjoys her retirement. Looks like a great start!

    congrats on a couple of nice walleye!
  5. Problem with goats is that you have to like eating them. They can be a challenging taste for some folks.
  6. Possum on the half-shell! Killer Pat takes him out!
  7. Very nice fish. Dry run creek is something special. It will spoil those boys for sure .
  8. Congrats to gou both! She should remember that first smallie. Great job Dad!
  9. Though I haven't caught any down there it wouldn't surprise me if fliers are in Duck Creek or Mingo WMA which is very close to Duck Creek. Check out FishMap.org. I use that a lot to see species distributions and where they may have be caught or collected. It can be a fickle site at times. I'll send you a PM on the best spot for chain pickerel.
  10. The whole Folly fishing crew have flier cards . Though we used small jigs tipped with worm, you could have caught a couple of these on your flyrod @FishnDave! Have to get to Maryland first .

  12. Congrats on finding a consistent bite. Keep taking your daughter out. Hope that she is a fishing pruner for life! A great way to make family memories.
  13. Now don't get @JestersHK started with that kind of talk ๐Ÿ™„! There will be no work done if he has an additional partner in crime on the all night Taney fishing. Seriously. That's a nice rainbow!
  14. Livie's favorite song! They say that I'm lazy but it takes all my time!
  15. I've got the swamp musky aka bowfun! No alligator gar though ๐Ÿ™„
  16. Absolutely fantastic job! I agree that it is a work of art.

    The post that started it all!!!
  20. You are correct, they are called goldens or palomino trout that are hatchery bred. I have never heard of stream bred palomino/golden trout. The golden trout in CA is a critically imperiled species.
  21. Yes ! They can strip a cow to the bones in less than a minute... OK maybe not, but they will flat out tear up bunker and other fish when they are in a feeding blitz. I made the mistake of getting my finger close to the mouth of a little guy and it bit through my finger nail . After that I never get my fingers anywhere near their mouths.
  22. When they started lifting the travel bans and self-quarantine rules, I finally got to head back out for saltwater fishing. We haven't had great success on numbers, but really made up so far is variety. Not going to go into too much detail on gear. Many of these fish were caught on high/Low rigs using live bait or fishbites. In Ocean City Livie and I fished a couple of piers using bloodworms and minnows. She caught a bunch of small black sea bass. And I caught a small summer flounder on a minnow and a 14 inch tautog (blackfish). on bloodworms. I got out one morning to the beach in Delaware and caught a couple using bloodworms scented fishbites bait. Caught my first First State "trout" - a weakfish or sea trout (happens to be the state fish ). And a southern kingfish (aka whiting or kingcroaker). Last Friday I ended up trying to catch some decent bluefish. Really slow day that even the locals were having a tough day. After about 4 hours of being skunked, I did catch my first fish of the day, a hickory shad, on a Thinfisher blade bait. I had lost a decent fish about 15 mins earlier on a 1 oz bucktail. Back toward the mouth fo the inlet, there were terns and gulls hitting bait fish. I threw out a 1 oz silver and red jigging spoon. I let it sink about 4 to 5 ft, jerked it once and was on tight to a snapper bluefish. Next cast same thing except the blue threw the bait 15 ft from being landed. Then nothing for many, many, casts. I switched to a small yellow headed Gotcha plug and landed one more hickory shad then the bite shut off. Although I haven't had any of the those high numbers days, all of these fish were fish that I had not caught yet this year .
  23. Sounds like a great time! I love multispecies trips. Just stupid fun catching a bunch!
  24. I hope that you do well fishing those streambred fish if you into MO in July. Miss seeing photos of a wide brim hat and fly rod in front of a pristine creek.

    The skin on the wings crisps up real nice when fried. Just like potato chips.๐Ÿ˜‰
