  1. Wow. If I were not 70 and on my last boat, I would buy a Vexus with a brand new ETEC and fish the next 15 years. I may do that anyway.
  2. I carry a jug of the 100x and a funnel in the boat. If the swells are not too bad, I simply refill.
  3. ETEC all the way. Two boats since 2006 both with ETECs. Never have needed to turn the key more than once, even after three months of winter. If you buy one have it set for the 100x oil. You will go months before you need to refill the reservoir in the motor.

    I just put half of a tri tip in the sous vide at 129. In the vac bag I added soy, miso, and much garlic. I pulled up the parsley to replant from new seed. I used it to make tabouli to go with the tri tip.

    Smoked at 225, the bacon gets done but never crisps.

    What's Cooking?

    Simple fare this evening. Some of the left over smoked pork tenderloin went into a roasted hash with a poached egg. The salad was made from blanched sugar snaps that came from my porch.
  7. At 929 to 933, HI is still good, but you need to park in what they call the overflow parking. The ramp at that level is flatish. Easier to do with two people. In the old days people launched off the point, but they blockaded that. BTW, at high water, the point at the opening becomes a prime walleye area.
  8. By 929, the question becomes can you get under the Beaver bridge, and if so, will they cut water loose and make it impossible to get back. Serious answer, at present, 928, if you go slow and watch what you are doing you can get a bit above the 62 bridge in a bass boat but probably not as far as Spider Creek. In a river boat you could make it past there.
  9. I have harvested modest amounts of the sugar snaps twice. My bush tomatoes (cherry) popped out their first bloom today. Tulsa is a bit warmer than mot of the areas you guys live. For example strawberry season is nearly over.
  10. My two cents: A 24v system should be plenty unless you fish all day tournaments in a gale. I am shopping a new troll motor and the Ultrex is my second choice. When The Ghost comes out in a longer shaft I will buy. Battery advice is all over the map. Some advocate Optima. Wrench says don't spend that kind of money and simply buy new batteries every year. I buy Interstates and replace them every other year. Never had a problem with that system so long as you keep them charged. I have had Lowrance, HB, Simrad, and Garmin units on my boat. They are all different and all excellent, but If you go with the Ultrex, go HB and link your console and your bow. Personally, I would buy the built in Mega DI. Remember, my advice is worth what you paid for it.

    Meatloaf, cheesy garlic mash, pan roasted squash, mushroom gravy.

    I don't have a deck rail anymore. We plebeians cannot afford such luxuries. Preping for tonight this afternoon.

    What's Cooking?

    Smoked bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with sweet potatoes roasted with onions and sage. Sugar snaps from my patio garden and a hand made sauce. A bit too done for my taste, but still excellent.

    About 8 years ago they cut and repaired my left shoulder. It was "down" about three weeks before surgery. I was lucky, though. I had limited use of it in only a few weeks and, after therapy, I had full range, although I never quite recovered all the strength.
