I went over to the fox today after a visit to cabelas. I got a casting rod that breaks down into 4 pieces so I think Ill be using my motorcycle instead of my car finally. That place is still overpriced but their fishtank looks much better. Lots of huge bass, both small, and largemouth. And some MONSTER bluegills. Supposedly all the fish are caught by employees.
Well anyways, I went over to the elgin dam but it looked like it sucks unless youre a buckethead. Then I moved over to south elgin and parked by the police station. I walked down the riverbank and finally got my first smallie on a senko. I didnt even feel it bite and it didnt fight much either because it was a dink.
Then I went and lost money at craps just like my river visit last year. I should have bought a better rod or some waders, and skipped the casino, but I thought they would have texas holdem.

Interesting post svs. My buddy and I hit up gat guns yesterday to check out a few sigs. Spent nearly $100. Then my buddy says let's hit up the boat. So off we went. About an hour later came out with $195 more in my pocket which covered the shooting expenses and then some. Then hit up cabela's go a 9' ugly stik and some spoons, was debating whether or not to get the stradic but held off. Finished off with BWW. Looks like we have some saturday adventures in common.

No foid but this christmas I got myself the ultimate red ryder bb gun. Its a drozd full auto, to keep from freezing the co2 it fires .177caliber round lead balls at 500 fps in single, 3 shot burst, or 6 shot, at 600 rounds per minute.
The problem is that when I shoot it it sounds like a machine gun and I get yelled at in like 15 seconds by neighbors. Now im paranoid and I havent even shot it since january, anybody have some land and want to have some fun plinking?

yep - people tend to have no sense of humor about automatic weapons. I've got an Ar-15 & Mini 14. I took them up to my uncle's farm in WI & was bump-firing them. (sounds just like full-auto fire) My uncle's neighbor actually drove to his house to complain. all ended well though - went to the bar afterwards & he remembered when I was a kid up there. bought him a few beers and all was well.

alcohol. Cause of, and solution to all of the world's problems
