If you shoot all the Coyotes, then the ground Squirrel take over and thats too high a cost
Nice, but to nice for fishing
How many hours did you get out of the 1st ones Steve?
You need more details on the manufacturer, model & price
Thanks for throwing the small ones back
Very nice project
Thats a nice looking boat
I have plenty of room at my ranch in Murrieta

Typically the Blue Fin are almost a no show then when we get the Albacore, but thats just the way I remember it.
