Off Topic / Plug for a new book - Viet Nam
« on: March 03, 2014, 10:47:43 AM »
"Backtracking in Brown Water" is a new book from Rolland Kidder. Rollie asked me to review it before it was published and then included my comments on the book jacket. Very cool. Got my autographed copy a few days ago.

He does a great job describing the war from the perspective of the "brown water" Navy, and in an up close and personal way, .  I was Army but did spend some time on the water, and I knew well one of the principals in his book that didn't make it home alive.
 
It's on Amazon here if you have an interest in this sort of reading.

I picked up a Furuno FCV-620 from Always Gone last year and can highly recommend it.

Ice Fishing / Re: LBDN Etiquette
« on: February 17, 2014, 02:46:16 PM »
I think I met these same clowns last summer while I was muskie fishing. A couple casts of a Pounder Bulldawg across their bow sent them moving fast, and I didn't say a word.

Best solution for ice fishing? Perhaps drilling a series of holes around their truck may prove effective.    wink()

P.S. Proposed solution is my personal opinion and does not represent the teaching of the Church.  ang()

Now that's funny.  Have to make sure your new Bishop appreciates your sense of humor  :poke:

"My buddy/boss looks at me and asks "Before you eat them, do you(here he puckers up and lets out a big sucking smack) suck on them a little?"

Very interesting video.  I wonder how many of us would be willing to do what these guys did?

There are now two things I will not eat… Beef tongue and deer balls! Even if they're fried in bacon.

My Mother-in-law used to cook beef tongue special for me many years ago.  It was awesome!  I have one in the freezer from the black angus we got this year and am waiting for the right opportunity to cook it up ;D

Product Reviews / Re: Cabela's Tournament 3500 auto-inflatable PFD
« on: December 09, 2013, 07:20:13 AM »
My kids bought me an inflatable right after Neal Green and Joe December were lost by drowning.  They made me promise to wear it as they said "Dad, you know you aren't getting any younger". 

No matter your age, it is a good idea to wear one.

Boat and Tackle Setups / Re: Fuel flow data on your boat?
« on: November 14, 2013, 08:44:02 AM »
Gary, went out with Joe Buys a few years ago and he swears by his flow meter, claiming it is accurate within a gallon or so on how much gas he has burned.  http://www.superiorfishing.net/index.htm

My gas gauge sucks so I bought and installed one.  It never worked worth a damn.  Based on Joe's experience, highly recommended if your gauge leaves you guessing.  Based on my experience, it's not worth the money.

Take your pick.
