JD Sports Forum! / Re: Fishing
« on: August 4, 2003, 08:33 PM »
I do own a fresh water pole and only really use when I go up to Maine.  I did catch an at least 4 lb large mouth bass on it, but since no one was with me, nobody believes me  >:(

I do wish I can go deep sea fishing more often.  I'm not in Matt's boat where I "chum" all day  ;) and just love being out in the open ocean.  One time, it was me, my father, his friend and his son, about 28 miles off the coast of Atlantic City.  We didn't catch much that day but being so far out was cool.  We did see a huge sunfish though.

Another time, same group, not as far out.  We hit a school of blues and were reeling in fish after fish.  I swear, we must have caught 200 fish that (which might be an exaggeration due to my then teenage mind, but it was quite alot of fish).  It was getting to the point where, if we caught a small fish, we'd leave it on the line and throw it back in as "bait" for larger fish.  A pretty cool day  ;D

I've had this happen too.  You run into a school of bluefish, and they're just in a feeding frenzy.  I pulled at least 13 blues out myself one time, and one was the pool winning fish of the trip.  I think that one was around 8 or 9 pounds.  And this was early in the season.  They get even bigger come October, usually about 20 pounds or so.  

Bluefish are such a good fighting fish, but they're terrible for eating.  They're really oily, and there's only a few good ways to prepare them.  If you want a good eating deepsea fish go for stripers, fluke, or flounder.  At least in the northeast, that is.

Jurassic Park III

Well, I'm gonna try scoring the last action fleet wave in Chicago this coming weekend.  That's right up there on my list.

Well, for me, obviously Star Wars is number one.  As for others?  I can't really rank them, but here they are:

Lord Of The Rings
Sports Picks (NFL, MLB & NHL)
Marvel Legends

I've gotten Plo Koon's cloak off.  Saesee Tiin's is a little stubborn though.

Hmm, I might have to see if I can find any Meijers stores on my way out to Chicago on thursday.  See if I can score one of these Red Wings three pack variants.

Put a softgoods cloak on the Mace from the Council Scene...NICE!  It's a little snug in the sleeves, but he can sit okay in it.

Also, I bought a slew of Episode I Yoda's when they were on clearance.  Mainly for the chairs.  I took off Even Piell's outer cloak, and the Yoda chair is perfect for him.

Oppo Rancisis is the toughest to get a cool pose going.  His tail isn't quite as flexible as I would've thought.  But, if you can pose it properly, it looks best wrapped around the base of the chair.  I only wish they'd made his head and torso a little bigger.  He seems a little too small there.

Next, the holo-projector in the Jedi can't tell who it is.  It's just a robed figure.  In fact, it's almost like a mini-mini version of the holographic Darth Sidious that came with Lott Dod and Count Dooku.

I got mine a week or so ago.  It was a new Target that opened up near me.

I want to see how well the Red Sox can handle the A's and Seattle's pitching in August.  That's gonna be the test to see if they can hang with the big boys in October.

They are, Chewie.  Although having Clone Troopers that can be used as both battlefield casualties and snipers is kind of novel.  But I agree...I like the version with the electro-binoculars better.

Heard the same.  I'm curious to see how they do Zep, especially Jonesy, since he was one of my main influences in learning to play bass.

Drat, and double drat!  I was hoping to get the Mon Calamari Cruiser this time around!

And not to leave out the fact that I never even saw the Republic Assault Ship wave, either.  Was that officially the last wave to make it to retail, or did the Jedi Starfighter and Homing Spider Droid make it out, too?

None that I know of  ;D

Back to the topic at hand...the 3-packs!  I was re-doing my Clone War diorama, and inserting my 3-pack Clones into the scene.  I found that the prone or sniper pose Clone Troopers also double well as Clone Troopers who were killed in action.  Thought it was interesting, at least.

They will....but not this year.  They're still too thin in the starting pitching department.  And pitching is what wins championships.
