| Outdoor Board|| Hydroponics - stewie on 5/23/13 at 4:07 pm|
Is anyone on the board into hydroponics (growing plants in a controlled water based solution, rather than dirt)
I'm tired of fighting weeds in my garden and I'm looking for a low cost, *weed free*, relatively low effort way of growing a garden.
Seems interesting enough to try it...anyone hav...
| Outdoor Board|| Just had to put down our yellow lab... - stewie on 5/11/13 at 2:52 pm|
She was a little over 14 years old and as loving as she was stubborn. A great dog that we adopted when she just was just three.
Thursday, she was diagnosed with bone cancer that spread into her lungs...moving around was tough, even with heavy medication.
I didn't think it was go...
| Outdoor Board|| Outboard Engine Question for Those of You OBers Mechanically Inclined - stewie on 5/5/13 at 6:41 pm|
So, I took the boat out on the bayou this afternoon for a quick run and to try some fly fishing.
I get out and notice the volt meter is high...as in 15, almost 16 volts (runs around 12 to 13 WOT usually)
Being rather surprised, I slow down and turn off the engine. I turned the power on (engin...

| Outdoor Board|| Anyone want to buy a new 21' Contender for $25? - stewie on 1/3/13 at 9:48 am|
Saw an ad for this on LA Sportsman and thought some of you OB ballers would throw in for a good cause.

Not too shabby with 4000/1 odds.
Oh yeah, if I win that boat, I'll sponsor a Tigerdroppings' OB fishing t...

| Outdoor Board|| Change of pace - What spare parts do you keep for your boat/trailer? - stewie on 12/20/12 at 2:31 pm|
I recently purchased an 18' Tidewater Baymax with a 90 H.P. 2-stroke on the back as a first boat and I'm slowly picking and choosing spare parts and pieces for the boat and the trailer.
I've been on boats all of my life but, as mentioned, I'm a first time boat owner and I want to get it right.

| Tiger Rant|| Y'all need to back of the coaching and be proud of this team. - stewie on 11/4/12 at 6:30 pm|
They went down swinging and I love it.
Yeah, some of the calls were very questionable but damn it we left everything out there and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Proud of the team and proud of the coaching, if we play anywhere like that for the rest of the season, we end up in a BCS bowl.
| Political Talk|| What did y'all think about the moderator? - stewie on 10/11/12 at 10:56 pm|
Thought she did a pretty good job considering the aggressiveness of the candidates. Much better than the first debate.
I'm glad she tried to get the candidates to stick to her questions and their previous political "claims."
What say you?...
| Outdoor Board|| Question for the OB mechanics - stewie on 7/2/12 at 3:59 pm|
I have a 2006 90 hp Yamaha two stroke engine that's acting a little quirky.
It'll run like a champ all day at 4000 rpms or under but a couple of times this weekend, when I gave it throttle beyond the 4000 rpm (around 4500-5000) it would throttle down to about 3500. This didn't happen all of the ...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU fans - Enough with the regular season doesn't matter talk - stewie on 12/4/11 at 6:08 pm|
It mattered enough to get LSU into the SEC championship game.
Because of that win, we are the SEC Champions! Our players got an extra week to prep, practice, and prove to everyone that we are #1.
What did Bama get? To sit at home and watch our players become CHAMPIONS!

Here's the situation...I'm a lifelong duck hunter that has never gone on a dove hunt before. I recently was given the opportunity to hunt a large area of farmland, where I work, that has a large dove population.
I'm familiar with the land, have a good idea of where the doves congregate, and I ...

| Outdoor Board|| Anyone been offshore lately? - stewie on 1/6/11 at 8:50 pm|
I've been on a bit of an offshore fishing hiatus in the past three months due to work.
Has anyone been out recently?
I know the blue water rip is right next to the mouth of the river out of Venice, it seems like a great time to hit it for some wahoo and then jump over to the lump.
| Outdoor Board|| Going on an overnighter this weekend, any advice? - stewie on 9/8/10 at 11:50 pm|
A few of us are going out of Cocodrie Sat. morn. and getting back Sun. afternoon.
We're going after yellowfin and whatever else bites.
We've all been out deep-sea fishing a number of times but never this far off shore, nor for an overnight trip.

LSU makes it to Atlanta this year.
I've been one of the bigger negatigers on this board, but things are starting to set up right for LSU.
All we need is for that O-Line to gel together and we will push for Atlanta and maybe for the MNC.
I say this because I think we will recommit to the run...
