This is just some random internet picture, but snapper have been caught while pulling stretch baits. If they're feeding, not sure why you couldn't catch them on some sort of crankbait.

Let me preface this with saying that I'm certainly not a pro at following recruiting. I'll pay attention at times, but certainly not as much as most of you guys.
I originally thought about this with regard to basketball, but I'm thinking it probably relates to football also.
What kind of effec...

Just checking in here. Sounds like for all of you to be happy CJJ needs to burn all TO's in the first 5 min, throw a chair across the floor, and get the refs to call a technical against the other coach.

I think we can all agree that most of the defensive issues revolve around effort; which is very surprising to me. Last year's team lacked many things, but effort certainly wasn't one of them. It seemed that they busted tail on every position, regardless of the situation in the game.

I have trouble on my lease. If I happen to find a tree that I like with no limbs that I could climb, the bottom 5-6 feet of the tree is inevitably twice the diameter than the rest of the tree. This makes it really difficult with a climber.
