Didn't get out yesterday until 10ish. Fished for about 4 hours. Hit most of our trout in 4 big bunches off Elmers by way of bay boat. Mostly under birds. Didn't get a chance to fish at sundown due to weather. Water was clear while we were there. This morning on our way out it looked very dirty. Ende...

| Money Talk|| Question about mutual fund selection - jimbeam on 6/10/13 at 7:49 pm|
This may be a stupid question, but:
When it comes to buying individual stocks, obviously a lot of average people buy high, then it falls and sell low. Which isn't making them any money.
When looking at mutual funds, what should you be looking at besides the average ytd/1yr/5yr/ect returns and ...

I've been looking into Vanguard funds to start my retirement funding and I have a question.
When looking at the price and performance of each fund, i'm confused. Why such a large jump when including 'sale of fund shares'?
For example- VSEQX

Returns after taxes on...

Fished from 7-12 out of Coco Marina. Water was dirty and wasn't super salty. Can tell all that rain really hurt the salinity. Gnats were horrible until the wind picked up a little. Caught 2 rat reds back to back about 9:30 and a speck around 11:30 on the way out.

You know in “Billy Madison” when Billy gives the answer about the puppy that lost its way and the moderator tells him, “Everyone in this room is now dumber after listening to it”? Yep, that’s essentially what Tiger Droppings is.
