    Oh believe me, I will spend at least one day throwing a popping cork with shrimp until I wear the fish out! I also enjoy catching specks. I promised a buddy that I would spend some days sight fishing with flyrod so he could have a partner in the boat. We are staying on a lodge/boat in the delta and the guides will come out and pick us up each morning.....two guys to a boat for the day. But, I have been assured that all booze (bar room on the boat) is included in the package and we will have plenty of time for cocktails and cigars on the upper deck in the evenings.

    I have fished rat reds and specks in the Laguna Madre off South Padre for about 30 years, but this will be my first trip for bull reds off the coast of Louisiana. Really looking forward to a new adventure.

    Excuse me guys - but this is a place for irrational fear-mongering over the impending doom of the world. Plan your fishing trips someplace else.

    Justin headed down again in April to chase fish on the barnacle reefs and sand bars in Terra Cia bay. I will return to Minnesota and self quarenteen in my fresh water boat.

    In all honesty I am excited to be able to just wipe my travel schedule, it will be nice to be home but I am concerned about the bottom line. Guess I will get staff to line up more webinars.

    Please try free lining with no cork, just a circle hook and a shrimp. Popper bobbers are used out of habit on the gulf.

    Well, I'm the head conductor of the derailment train. Ozzy still has the crazy train. But, I know Fix is looking for a good fight, maybe you could antagonize him a bit. :evilgrin:

    Oh, and I just heard that coronavirus has jumped to deer and all seasons are closed for the coming year. :deer:

    Honestly, the symptoms don’t seem so bad. catch it now, get it over with and have people avoid you for the next few months. It’s a win win!

    After the week I've had, I think I'll get over to some hotspot and lick door knobs. That will get me away from this looney bin for awhile.

    This is what the CDC is withholding from us.....the real response to the coronavirus.

    It won't be me. I don't associate with society. I'm home recovering from ankle surgery for couple more months. And for what it's worth my wife bought me a bidet for Christmas so I'm good to go with that too.

    Best of luck on your recovery! I have a plate and several screws in my right ankle from an ATV accident and have gotten along perfect for about 15 years now. Best advice I can give is to do the physical therapy religiously to give yourself the best chance at full recovery. Take care.

    News last night had an interview with a fellow from Seattle regarding the lack of sanitation of the homeless population. A guy was diagnosed with the virus and confined to a motel room. Are you with me? He left the motel room, went across the street and robbed a convenient store then got on a city bus. People who fly have to fill out a questionnaire about their travels, possible exposure to the virus, etc. To get on the plane, the flat out have to lie. Two people had the virus and flew home. Now the airlines are contacting the people on the flights and notify them of the exposure. Plus they have exposed hundreds of people in the airports to the virus. Ah, meshuggah!

    I flew yesterday from Detroit to Minneapolis there was no questionnaire, nobody asked me about my health. Flew Monday as well and all the planes I have been on were full.

    I work in healthcare and I'm hoping like hell I don't get it. Just a matter of time I suppose.

    So far on Craigslist I’ve seen some willing to trade a RV or travel trailer for 9 rolls of Toilet paper and another person selling used toilet paper. This is great. Wish I would have bought a bunch of stock in Netflix or Johnson and Johnson probably could have made a fortune the next couple months.
