Just some stuff because I have extra time.
Amazingly I did get up at 5am and made my way to the river for about 6am. Reader Watchtower wanted to see how I rig up my kayak, and of course I always go the extra mile for my readers (unlike some other blogs!). Here she is about set to go fishing this morning (click for bigger picture):
-Kayak: Ascend FS-10 offered by Bass Pro Shops. Cool little boat and it has various rod holders front and rear so it is very well set up for fishing. When I am using the wind and current to drift fish I can set the rod in the front holder and sit back to relax until I get a hit.
-The black thingy in the front is a Hummingbird remote sonar system. It is wireless so I just tie the little green thing near the end of the boat to the rear clip and pull the transducer along with me. It sends the information out to the monitor up front. Not too bad, but I have a much better unit for the Quabbin trips.
-I strap in a milk crate to the rear section which was made especially to hold a crate. I put water, supplies, and the camera back there.
-I use a 10 pound hand weight for an anchor, though I usually will drift fish rather than set up at one spot.
-I use St. Croix rods; they are the finest rods you can get in my opinion.
-I fish mostly Yamamoto Senkos these days. The fish eat them like candy. It will outfish live bait most times! I use a mix of 3 inch "fat" senkos and 5 inch regular senkos to target any fish in the area. The black and pumpkinseed colors work best for me.
I think that about covers it all. And no, I have no affiliation with any of the product makers mentioned. If they would like to sponsor me I will gladly accept any money or products in exchange for my pumping their items!
Quotes from Last Night
I see, without Google help nobody could get the quotes!
Here are the solutions:

"Well then you're unlucky; Cus we can always step outside."
-Episode of "The Dukes of Hazard" when Bo and Luke get in a fight.
"It’s not a payoff, it’s a gift. You already let me go."

"It was almost time to be reborn. He knew. Why else could he suddenly do magic?"

CALL ME Kate!:
Just some stuff I came across in my travels on the internets.
I stumbled upon this really well done remake of the trailer for the film "Excalibur". This film has so many big time actors in it!:
I love that flick.
I remember the Spring 2000 race at Atlanta Motor Speedway when Dale Earnhardt beat Bobby Labonte by the thinnest of margins:
After Dale died it was a rough time for me. I always loved the guy. Kevin Harvick took over the RCR car and in only his third start he wins at Atlanta Motor Speedway by beating Jeff Gordon, again, by the thinnest of margins! When Kevin won this race I can tell you honestly I was sobbing like a baby from the end and all through the post race tribute to Dale:
Still gets me!
Have a good night.
