I lost several players this week and I have a side question to others.
Is there anyone out there who is targeting Gordon?
If so what do you feel is realistic trade value for him?
Anyone looking at my team would know he is about to be dropped so I lack leverage but...out of curiuosity what...

Buffalo River is a great river to float on and in my opinion is proboboly the best float in Arkansas. Call around to any rental shop and they can arrange any lenght of trip you desire from a few hours to a few weeks and everything in between. Great place.
The lower White river could also be a g...

Went there about 6 years ago and loved it. That area is very nice. We stayed in a cabin nearby and it was a great time. Did some canoeing, horseback riding and hiking over a long weekend.
Are you looking for something specific like Hiking, Fishing, Hunting, Kids Activities, Boating, etc? If s...

In general, if you're running out of memory, the last thing you really want is memory on a disk drive. You need more RAM. This isn't exclusive to windows either. When Linux starts hitting swap it's the same thing.
Agree with this statement.

I have had success just tossing old shrimp heads and mashed crabs into the water in the marsh. To me the best spot to put them is in shallow water (where it is visible) near relatively deep moving water. Find it will attract whatever is around.
I used this technique with success du...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Low-water bridges - computerguy on 7/7/14 at 3:00 pm|
Might not be an exact match to your definition, but the bridges on Highway 11 in Irish Bayou are pretty low. A high tide or hard east wind or a combination of the two will put the water up to the bridge.
I have gotten caught in situations where I left to go fishing and then could not return on...

For those interested in fishing by kayak near the Chef / Marquez.
The little cut across from Venetian Isles is pretty solid.
Fish the mouth where it hits Sauvage, then paddle in and fish that first pond. Little cut on the right holds water (4-6') and the tide runs through there really well si...

With your science background why not just go ahead and double major in one of the engineering disciplines or Geology.
How many hours would it take to get a Chemical / Petroleum Engineering degree? Professional options would have great pay scales and would certainly be challenging.

I just got done reading through the thread because the topic was interesting.
There seems to be some confusion from the IT side on some of the users comments:
1. When talking about how the emails were lost some were referring to the computer (a laptop i believe) and the server.

They aren't cheap. I think I spent $8 on one
Actually that isn't too bad. Figure the kastmaster spoon will cost somewhere close to that.
I may also keep an eye out for sales around the web just to see I can find something on clearance somewhere. ...

So you fish strictly from the beach?
I only fish from the beach on our 'beach' trips which usually occur every other weekend. Up to this point I usually just either buy some shrimp/squid or use the cast net to grab whatever I can get a hold of. Then botto...

Thanks, Nado Jenkins83
I think i am going to go with a kastmaster spoon and yozuri plug with the weight transfer system as my first purchase.
After that I will explore some other options like the corkies and swim baits.
Upgrade to braid will probably happen down the line when I catch someth...

Any baits with this weight transfer system cast a mile.
This looks great, getting a larger lure with the weight transfer system should allow me to cast that thing into orbit.
Since I am locked on shore I need something that I can reach out as far as possible with....

If you switch to 30lb braid you could probably really throw whatever lure you want a mile.
Yeah braid with a leader would be the way to go but I only surf fish occasionally and I had some mono laying around. I may eventually switch over but I mainly bottom fish and the mono wit...

Braid marauder - man they appear to run $30-$50 might be out of my price range for a shore casting bait.
Corkies - nice call, never fished one of these but they look like they would be perfect to imitate a mullet or pogey....

I live in Orlando and fish the surf on the Atlantic/Gulf while on trips to the beach.
While I typically just do the cast net or dead shrimp/squid on the bottom deal I am looking for a couple lures to cast for fun.
The top criteria is something I can cast as far as possible. I have a 12' rod...

Make sure you keep them covered in ice and ensure the melt water is drained out.
I've kept fish like this for several days, but I wouldn't want to try a whole week.
This and I would definitely make sure you drain the water out. Fish will hold up really well for extended per...
