    1 and only 1 Popper???

    So, heading out Wednesday for a full day in hopes of yellowfin. I've read some of the reports, and seen that the poppers are working from time to time. I grew up fishing poppers and topwater stuff for bass and such, and loved that type of fishing, but haven't ever done it in saltwater...

    Offshore Fishing in SD after a large hurricane swell

    I now understand the fact that warm water won't push up for the most part, but what about the swell forecast affect on overall fishing?

    Ok, thanks guys. So, I will go with either 65 or 80 braid (Which???), and then maybe a 40# topshot??? Sound good??? And would Sufix, PowerPro, any of those lines suffice? This is strictly a "Just in case" setup, so not going to be overused......
  252. Vermonster

    TLD 20 Capabilities/Limits?

    Well, that was my plan, but he needs some $$$$, and like I said, unless I can dump the other one, I can't pony up the cash right now. If I can get someone to take the Marlin, then I can cover the difference. That photo was just a shot of the serial #, but it's pretty much the same condition...
  343. Vermonster

    Grading/Valuing a gun?

    Not too familiar with doing this, but looking at examples from the Blue Book, they talk about percentage of bluing left, and overall shape. This is a gun I would like to keep for myself, but in order to do so, would need to get a decent amount for another of mine (Marlin 336C in 30-30) and I...

    Nate, you can't get 2 premium, but can get a premium and a restricted. I think that's how it works. Premium in the lottery, then be ready to pull the trigger on the restricted when the leftovers go on sale. D16 went back to restricted this year, not premium.....

    First West Coast Buck......

    It's funny, it was a sudden turnaround too. Could still barely walk last night, today, don't feel a thing. ;) Oh, and not sure Deno if it's the same one as the photo, but if not, it's his antler twin, even with the broken front......

    No deer tracks in 10 years? That's tough. I would think you'd have a decent amount of them out in that area, especially if you border the Daley Ranch. But yes, lots of lions around too.

    First West Coast Buck......

    Thanks everyone. My legs finally feel back to normal today...... LOL
  485. Vermonster

    First West Coast Buck......

    So Deno wanted to go with me, and he was giving me first shot since it was "my spot" , and I hadn't shot a buck here before. We left just before shooting light, and hiked an hour down into the canyon. Got set up around 6:30 about 100 yards above the camera on a hillside. We had about 180 degree...

    Well, before this site got so big, it was sort of a "family" in the sense that most people knew each other, and you could count on the opinion of other members in cases like this. If I was looking at a new reel, gun, etc., and a member had one for sale and told me it was near mint, I would...

    Just throwing this out to see what the interest would be. Gun is in very nice shape, with the exception of 1 tiny blemish on the front sight, which could easily be dealt with. See them online anywhere from mid 400's to low 500's. Hoping to get $400 O.B.O.. Will get photos when I get a chance.

    Alaska Moose Hunting with Pops

    Excellent. Almost more tender than any local deer here too, which I think is because the cuts of meat you get are much bigger than a deer, so you have more room to cut off the sinew/tendons/connective tissue and get a chunk of nothing but wonderful tasting meat........ ;)

    Loggerhead Sea Turtle Sightings

    Agreed it's grey, and like I said, I would find out first....... ;)
  556. Vermonster

    Breaking in the new gaff!

    That's my take on it too. Of course I would find out for sure before doing it, but I lean towards it being legal.
  557. Vermonster

    Breaking in the new gaff!

    No, the key words are "Assist or TAKE". So you can't use a gaff to TAKE one that is undersized, but where does it say you can't TAKE one that is OVER the minimum size????? I am not saying it's 100% legal, but I am also saying that it's also not shown to be ILLEGAL. I would need more...

    The Cheater vs The Rapist

    Harry, he did cheat. The league just didn't show enough proof or follow the proper proceedures...... That's what the judge ruled on, not Tom Brady's innocence..... LOL Go ahead and keep thinking whatever you want though...... ;)
  559. Vermonster

    The Cheater vs The Rapist

    But that's kind of the point Harry, why cheat, when you don't need to? It's plain Ego, nothing more..... Take Bonds as an example, or Clemens. Nothing was "Proven", they were not found "guilty", but everyone knows they did it, just like Brady. Bonds was a 5 tool player, an almost certain Hall...

    Breaking in the new gaff!

    As the regs state..... So, the way I read that, why would they mention to "assist in landing or to take", if it wasn't legal at all. To me, if you can't use a gaff to assist or take a fish under the minimum size, then you can use on to assist or take a fish OVER the minimum size. If Gaff's...
