José and I went to the Bumfucking Bay or Dumbfoundling Bay or whatever it was called. We saw nothing like what the self-appointed Captain Jimbo described. This man gives absolutely horrible directions and has no sense of distance. In other words, we're not really very sure whether we fished in the same place. "Huge Bay" […]

QotD: Pet Name

Question: What's the most unusual "pet name" you've ever had for a significant other (or one has had for you)? My Answer: "Sugarbear Honeybunch." I don't know why. I think it was supposed to be "sugarbear honeybuns" but at some point I probably said it incorrectly, and it stuck. Oh well. You are encouraged to […]

Goin’ Fishin’ with Ramos

Tomorrow (well, today actually, as it's past midnight) José and I are going fishing at Dumbfoundling Bay. We'll be after tarpon (yeah right) but will be quite, quite happy to hook up with a bunch of Jack Crevalle: This is my first saltwater trip in which I'm the most experienced, and I hope, unlike last […]

QotD: Google

Question: How many times per day do you visit Google? My Answer: About six, nearly none of which involves looking for entries on my own blog. 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Albright Knot

This knot is used to join two lines of different thicknesses. It is used to attach a heavier 'leader' (rather than a double) to a lighter main line. It requires careful forming of the loops. You can learn more about this knot - or other knots - by searching Google, foo!

Pirate Day

Shiver me timbers, matey! September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day. I guess I'll have to brush up on my vocabulary and find me some buxsom beauties with which to share some booty. Or something like that… Arrrrr!

Tihs Mkeas Snese?

Pittsburgh 20, Kansas City 41

Well, I can easily say that I'm glad they had this game early in the season. After last week's "not as close as the score tells it" 34-15 victory over Baltimore, the Steelers bumbled their way to a disappointing 41-20 loss today. Maddox was again quite good (more on this later), throwing near 60% (28 […]

QotD: Friends

Question: Did you ever really watch Friends? My Answer: Yep. When I was in high school, I thought Jennifer Aniston was quite attractive. Then I went to school and simply grew out of it. Nowadays I haven't even got a clue who's pregnant, who's had a kid, who's married (or divorced), or what. I just […]

QotD: Britney

Question: On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate Britney Spears' talent? My Answer: Six, maybe seven. She's got more talent than most people, giving her a minimum of a five or so, but not nearly as much as true "artists." A lot of her "talent" is in looking good (and in fact this […]


Britney Spears has stirred up quite a bit of muck lately. First she makes out with Madonna, then she poses like this (see images at right) in Rolling Stone. That's all fine - she's pretty hot, and I enjoy looking. Will I buy Rolling Stone? No. Will I gawk at her half-naked on the Web? […]

Beating a Cub

People like this deserve the same treatment they've given to their victims - in this case a black bear - every day for the rest of their lives: "I was never mean to the bear. There was a couple of times I wanted to hit him over the head with a pipe or something but […]

QotD: Quitting

Question: Have you ever quit a job by simply not showing up the next work day? My Answer: Yes, I have. Then, two days later, I called and asked them if they were handling my two-week vacation properly in payroll. 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the […]

John Ritter, Johnny Cash

Both John Ritter and Johnny Cash have shuffled off this mortal coil. Not a good day for people named John, nor for their fans. I can't say I'm a big fan of either, but I know that they brought a great amount of amusement and happiness to many, and for that, they will be missed.

Rods and Reels

I was writing an email to Captain Jimbo, and I thought this information may come in handy in the future as well, so I'm documenting it here. My current rod and reel situation: Redbone 2-piece M/L with a Daiwa Capricorn 2500 and 10 lb. line Redbone 1-piece M/L with a Shimano Stradic 4000 and 10 […]
