    TNBF#7 Boone Night

    I think this was a good call. Even given my history of liking to fish in bad weather, I had reservations about this. I live in a protected valley and the wind has been howling over the tops of the hills for last couple hours here.

    Rain gear recommendation??

    I haven't found anything comfortable in warm weather. I use the non-insulated Cabela's Guidewear. It's made larger than the size it is, which allows layering. Has scuba type cuffs. Fished in downpours and stayed dry. I wear Sub-Zero coveralls under them in brutally cold weather and stay warm. Mine are going on five seasons now.
  13. 35 years ago today was the infamous "pine tar" bat incident. George Brett's game winning homer called an out after Yankee's coach Billy Martin argues that he had too much pine tar on the bat.

      Now that’s interesting. The makeup game was pretty wild too. 

    2. trackertxw175


      I was actually watching that game after work. George lost his mind when they called him out while he was sitting in the dugout after circling the bases. One of the most bizarre things I have ever seen.

      First I've seen this. I've heard of it but didn't know exactly what happened and yeah Brett lost his mind but what the coaches did with the bat after they called out didn't help his case lol

    Co-poylomer line?

    Guess that explains why mono feels more elastic. Good read.

    Co-poylomer line?

    In my opinion, there's more stretch with co-polymer than with fluorocarbon.

      LOL. Funny shiz right there. In all seriousness, everybody be careful tonight. Had several tornado warnings near me in east Arkansas last night, as well as a good wind/rain/thunder/hail storm that woke me up about midnight. That crap is heading y’alls way. 

    3. BulletDeuce


      In all seriousness, ditto to what Steve said. Everyone be careful out there.

    4. trackertxw175


      Hopefully we won't have anything like what came through last night. That was insane.

    Best deep diveing cranking rod

    This time of year, you could crank a 9:1 as fast as you can crank and not get it away from a Bass.
  22. Watching Lake Oahe on BASS live is like watching a winter TX on an East Tennessee lake. Most are vertical fishing.

      Nothing like watching sheep graze lol. They also said that there is only one marina that sells gas on the entire lake.
