    Paul, I am pretty sure the answer is none. I haven't looked to be sure and don't know the names of all the people who work for the Chargers. Dont want to give you a definative none and then find out somebody donated fifty bucks that works for the Chargers. You can always go to the San Diego...

    New stadium proposal. What do you think?

    So....if the taxpayers are going to spend that money anyway. Why not spend it on a new stadium that will keep the NFL in SD and bring back the superbowls. Not to mention all the other events a new multiuse stadium could host.
  54. Sherm

    New stadium proposal. What do you think?

    We will be spending the money (taxpayer dollars) anyway on the stadium. To the tune of 10 to 15 mil a year. Unless we bulldoze the thing then we won't have to spend the money. But an asphalt lot with nothing on it generates no money at all.
  55. Sherm

    New stadium proposal. What do you think?

    The stadium currently costs taxpayers 10 to 15 million a year. The new plan spends about 7mil a year for thirty years. If you extrapolate 10 to 15 mil a year for thirty years.........we may be a head of the game.
  56. Sherm

    New stadium proposal. What do you think?

    The hardest part about looking at the revenue and economic impact of the NFL is that it is just very difficult to quantify just how and when revenue is generated. For example. The city is going to host the MLB Allstar game in 2016. That event will reach something like 100 plus countries and...
  57. Sherm

    New stadium proposal. What do you think?

    This city (taxpayers) are in the hole 10 to 15 million a year on the current stadium. if you extend that out over 30 years you see the 300 million we would have spent on an old stadium that is falling apart. Keeping the NFL in San Diego is important to generate the tax revenue needed to keep...

    Yep the city dropped the ball on that one. Twice there has been opportunity to do this but you had Mike Aguirre first then Donna Frye was completely against it when she represented the area. I'm pretty sure the guy who represents the area on the council now wants a deal to be reached.

    Chargettes are leaving...finally.

    The best part is if you do all can build a new stadium without taxpayer dollars. It takes vision and understanding that things will change in the valley. But if done with the proper planning and leadership it could be amazing.

    Chargettes are leaving...finally.

    We can develop the Qualcomm site and the Chargers will stay. The city has 166 acres (that's the equivalent of 66 blocks downtown) in the middle of Mission Valley. The chargers play in existing stadium while we build a stadium next to it in the parking lot. Then you tear down the existing...

    So do private boaters need a permit to fish the Nados?

    I don't think they don't want us fishing their waters. They are just looking for regulation and a few bucks. I'm sure if there were a lot of Mexican boats coming to La Jolla and fishing we would be trying to do something. Working together I'm hopeful we can fix this problem.

    what happened to fishing manners?

    There is common courtesy when fishing. Most people adhere to it and ask for an ok to slide up on a paddy. Unfortunately......some people have forgotten courtesy and just think solely about themselves. Is it ok to slide up on someone's paddy? No......but it will happen. If it does......catch...

    Which truck do you prefer?

    My Tundra has 304,000 miles on it without a problem. I haul my toy box with it a bunch. Either to the desert or into Mexico. 304,000 miles and still the same motor and transmission. An excellent truck.

    The food and accommodations were excellent. The fishing was phenomenal. Shoot me a pm if you want details. I did a report here back around the first part of August titled Cedros fly in fishing or something like that. Good pics of the place.

    You could do the fly in trip with Duane at Cedros Adventures and bypass the whole mess. Stay on the island and fish from pangas.

    I remember hunting quail when I lived near Sedona Az. Lots of fun chasing birds all over the mountains......I'm not a very good shot. Can't seem to recall sheep though. Must be specific to your part of AZ. Almost enough day light to launch the yak now. Carry on.

    Bye Norve, Bye A.J.

    I recognize that kind of statement. Sounds very political to me. If I read between the lines the quote roughly translates to "which one of you MF'ers leaked to the press". I would put my money down on both leaving if I were a betting man.

    Considering taking my 5 yr old son on half day...

    Very good tip about Getting some meds in him the night before. I like to have that suff in someone who getsnsick bloodstream 24 hours before our trip. Take some the night before and when you get up and the kid should be fine.
  612. Sherm

    Considering taking my 5 yr old son on half day...

    You should be fine. Try going mid week when the boats are not so full. I took my daughter on her first cattle boat trip when she was that age. She had a blast.

  621. Sherm

    Mission Bay early am

    Agreed. That fishery is not as good as it used to be. The fishing is still pretty good though. I think there are two factors to the "not as many fish" problem. 1st is that the bay is shallower than it used to be and 2nd is the amount of shore fishermen that are keeping everything they...

    I fished the bay this morning with a nice incoming tide, no wind, and NO BOATS anywhere to be seen. It was just me and the brants swimming nearby. What a great and peaceful morning. The bite started out very good with four fish in nine casts. Most of the spotties were in the cookie cutter 12...

    A yak would be a good start. I have gotten my monies worth out of it and then some. Most yaks are pretty stable. Many yak shops will let you test paddle before you buy. I hoop and fish off mine and have never flipped it. Well.....once coming in in big surf but that doesn't count. 8 years...

    Current and structure. Try to be up current just a bit from the structure you want to hoop. Scent will be carried to the bugs that way. Lots of time on the water and paying attention to conditions when you do start to find them. Congrats on the turkey alternative nadoislander. Nice catch.
