oh my... I *just* saved almost all of the previous thread from 2007 onward
good stuff, Fred!!!
good stuff, Fred!!!
Thanks for the kind words. Did write for different papers and mags for ten years. Just got tired of editors who needed to change things and when the last one changed it to the point where I didn't recognize it I knew it was time to hang it up. Besides, places like the Barn make for more contact with fisherman and can have a lot of fun at the same time.Fred, we've never met but I just had to take a minute and reply, and thank you for your great postings. Not only is the information that you so generously provide to this website outstanding, but your writing is definitely some of the best I've ever come across. Not to embarass myself with my own ignorance, but I can't believe that you haven't written outdoor articles professionally, and if you haven't you damn well should consider doing so. The details, professionalism and prose (even when your joking around with someone!) in your postings are terrific. Believe me, it's one thing to be able to organize facts into sentences and make them logical and coherent; but it's all together something else to "tell a story" that makes the reader want for more.
Congratulations on another fine piece, and keep them coming! I love my flounder fishing (which I do almost exclusively now in the OC, MD area).
Will spin it past Mike but I doubt it. We try to gear this to cover everyone and some guys like to fish alone or with one other person. It's been working well so far but will let Mike make the final decision.
THE WATER TEMPERATURE RANGED FROM 58-68 DEGREES TODAY.
You have me looking forward to your annual opening day tournament. Speaking with a few dudes at the moment that are interested in fishing it. Would you consider adding a heaviest stringer category? If not, would you consider increasing the amount of flounder to be weighed to at lest 6?
It's really cool in this, What Have You Done For Me Lately, world that somebody give so generously of thieir knowlegde. All he ask if your around stop in and talk fishing, and I have. No Bones has changed my outlook on B&T's, I was really sour on them, sell you crappy bait and give you worthless information. Another thing thats really neat about N/B's is you know how you walk into a tackle shop and all the local hanger outers turn and look like why are you interrupting. Never got that feeling even when I first started stopping in, prior to being local hanger outer. :razz: P/S their are other good B&T's who aren't sponsors so I can't mention their names.Thanks again Fred:thumbsup: I read your previous thread and applied what I learned from it last year and had my best Flounder season ever...by far.
You going to be here on Wednesday morning?Where is the map of the secret spots???lol
