I've never fished below the dam and those so called catfish.. those things are illusive like big foot. I keep hearing about it but haven't seen one on the end of my line so far this yr

Honestly get a sabiki rig and catch some skip jack. nothing on the river will resist them. You wont be skunked again. I'll be there and if I have a spot open on my tiny jon boat you can park your butt on it and we will get tight.

Only rules,
NO talk of Politics or Religion period.
No guns.
Clean your own fish.

Sorry Buzz, didn't see your reply until now.. Had some business to take care of the last couple days and I'm in the middle of smoking a pork shoulder right now.



You are right.. no place for religion or politics while fishing


Maybe next time ?

I understand his request of no gun... Although I am permitted to carry and have to go thru several back ground checks ever couple yrs as well periodical when I am involved with sensitive military or power plant business. I see others that carry that I wonder how they are allowed out the house. Personally I would like to at least meet up with a person a time or two before I would feel comfortable around them, especially with a gun.



My boat my rules, your boat your rules...

Flatline you nailed it. Glad to see you have a good understanding of caution.

Iím very pro gun, but Iím also pro drinking. Guns and booze donít mix. I have to see if youíre a water rat.

If you cannot go fishing without a gun then I have questions about you. Iíve never ever fired a shot while fishing and I go about 100 days a year, every year.

Good enough for ya?

Thankfully most never need a gun. However, doesn't matter how many days you haven't needed one, what happens if you need one and don't have it?

Take a gun and leave the booze at home. Safer for all.

Iím not getting drunk but some people do. Iím always driving so I may have two while Iím out. But it gets hot and my partners can haveíem I donít care how much they have.

Iím going by the odds and Iíve never had to fire a shot so I donít need one. When have you ever been in a gun fight on the water? Or heard of one? What odds do you think it will end well? Plus what is a pistol going to do past 15yrds? Are you carrying your AR on the boat so you can accurately shoot your target from range?

Honestly the rational of being paranoid or the ďwish a mother would tryĒ both seem like a huge waste of time.
To each their own. Iíll carry when Iím in the city but I never do on the water.

I carry on my boat because I'm fishing alone, usually at a secluded ramp where its easy to get ambushed. I have to agree, alcohol and guns don't mixed, in fact its illegal and that is a good way of going to jail if the warden catches you.

Personally I drink very little and yet to have any booze on my boat. I carry plenty of water and Power Aid... Alcohol and 90* plus heat don't mix all that well either.


I will defend Buzz on this for the simple fact that he doesn't know me... Besides I want to go fishing not dispute philosophical ideas about stuff we have no control over any ways... I go fishing to have fun and relax... if that is possible when you know the fish is right there but they want to play hard to get..

Cool Nope !! ... TK

Sorry to say... I am going on 74 years old and can't get in a boat anymore with out help ... I have always had beer on board in the past except when guiding ... As well as a 357 mag, 24/7 no matter where I am ... guiding, pleasure, or even Walmart and even church and a movie theater!

In the past I have defending fellow Bass Tourney mates who had been accosted by road rage on the water from either a drunk or meth head with my fire arm ... And that was in the 70's...

With the meth heads and other drugs out there now, no matter where you go ..One needs to protect themselves ... Use common Sense !! In my opinion any one who ventures out on our water ways with out a fire arm is a fool in this day in time !! Beer or no beer ... as Client Eastwood said ... Every one should know their limitations in this case, either drinking or firearms ... ... TK ..

PS. As far as politics go I wouldn't get in a boat with a far Left Liberal Democrat ... Right off the bat you know he is not going to be carrying, and wants someone else to protect him .. Thank God for people who have stepped up to protect this country and the meek or just folks who do not know what they would do in a crises, indecision's will get you killed .... SSGT.
