Just stopped at Academy for lunch. They had Shimano Sustain 2500FG spinning reels listed at $99. I can't find them for less than $250 anywhere on line. I'm not super familiar with them, is there some model out there that is built shitty :dunno:. I got two. Seems like there may have been a pric...

How do you make this decision? Even when I find names I like, it's hard to say "that's definitely the name I want my child to have for the rest of their life". We're finding the gender soon and we're going to have to eventually make a decision. ...

May be moving for work soon. We put 20% down on the house I bought before I got married. Now that I'm married my wife's student loans are part of our monthly expenses. I have no idea how much PMI will actually cost per month, but I was wondering if it would be worth using down payment money plus sav...

I'm having a kid in September and looking to eventually sell my boat after the summer. Looking to post it now to see if I can get a good price for it. What are some good [u]free[/u] sites to post it. I know LA sportsman, but other than that I'm not really sure. Boattrader wants $50 for a two wee...
| Outdoor Board|| Shallow Water Bay Boats - KG6 on 2/25/14 at 2:20 pm|
I currently have a small flats boat, but it looks like I'll be getting rid of it at the end of the year due to moving and having a kid at the same time. I plan to buy another boat in a few years. I like fishing in the marsh, but with kids, I think it will be better to get a little larger bay boat....

My lawn is getting out of control thick. I've pretty much got to cut it on the highest setting. I'm planning to de-thatch this spring, but I've read that you have to be careful with St. Augustine. Anyone ever done it before in South Louisiana? Is there a best time to do it (March, April, May)? ...

I'm looking to buy a used watch from a forum. It will be a person to person sale. Does Paypal have a good reputation protecting against fraud? I read their purchase protection page that allows you to fill out a dispute, but I'm not sure how that relates to buying from joe-blow off of the internet...

Detroit vs. Giants

My lab's right under 60 lbs and ate a few cigarettes at the in law's house. A Google search brought up a lot of mixed answers. Anyone ever have a dog do this. Its Sunday so the vet is closed and I don’t want to take her to the pet urgent care place if its not necessary.
ETA- She seems fine right...

My dad is big into photography and videography. I remember him talking anout YouTube when it first came out and how useful it was. I wish I could have invested in it at that time. Out of all of the big websites to emerge out of the last decade or so, I really think it's going to be one of the longe...

I brought this up in the other thread about the Stoeger M3000, but I figured it get more attention with it's own thread. Has anyone purchased a new firearm that just didn't work right out of the box? What was your experience dealing with the manufacturer?
I bought the M3000 last week after shoo...

What do I need to NOT do? :lol:
Going to make a dove hunt if it isn't raining too bad. I was thinking about having her come sit out there with me and hopefully get excited about seeing birds. I don't expect too much from her (She's 10 months and still gets sidetracked easily). I just want to m...

My wife has to go out of town tomorrow for work. I've been needing to go pick up a shotgun that I can only find for a reasonable price where she has to go. I know I can just get her to buy it and give it to me, but technically I don't think that's exactly legal. She has no idea what she's doing and ...

Does anyone have a good site that lists the #1,#2,#3, etc spots for each team for WR and RB. I've used it in the past for later round picks when I need someone that isn't a huge name, but may be a second choice as a target for a team. I was asked to pick in a league at the last minute and haven't ...

I'm thinking of installing two pop-up cleats on the front deck of my flats boat to use for strapping down a Yeti/K2 cooler to use as a casting platform. Anyone have any experience installing anything like this. Is it a project for a novice, or is it better left to a professional. I'm a little nervou...

What self defense items could she bring that are allowed on planes? She normally carries pepper spray, buts I'm pretty sure you can't take that on a flight. I'm not one to be very paranoid, but I do think this trial will cause some problems over the next week, and she'll be in the eye of the storm....

How many fish do you think regular tournament fishers catch in a day? Obviously anyone can luck up an put two fish together that make a good weight, but how many fish are the "pros" catching to put up consistently good numbers? Are they stalking big fish, or do they catch 30 fish per day? I'm sta...

I'm getting a slight scum line on my boat. I've used Starbrite hull cleaner before and it works, but you have to put a good coat of wax after you use it. I don't mind doing that, but I don't want to have to do it that often. Are there any other products out there that will help clean without being a...

I'm probably going to be getting a flats boat within the next week so that I can get in some really shallow water. I normally fish with a trolling motor in those cconditions, but I'll be able to pole out of this boat. I've never done it before. Is it beneficial in Louisiana? ...

Pro-Drive/Gator Tail or flats boat for marsh fishing? I'm torn. I like the aluminum boat because I won't care about beating it up and I can get wherever I want. I can also use it when I make the occasional duck hunt. But for the same price, I can get a nice used flats boat. I would get more spe...

I'm only familiar with Pro-Drive, and really only been around tiller steering boats. How does the Gator Tail shift into reverse on a center console?

I know it's illegal even with a license, but who here overlooks the law? I don't feel like I need to carry on the parade route, but sometimes we end up having to park on some pretty shady streets and I'd like to have it with me.
