Fishing South Padre Island

I'm pulling the OB19 down to South Padre Island the 3rd week of July. I'm familiar with fishing Port A. Done a lot of trolling the inlet for Kings using Ribbon fish, and bottom fishing around the jetties with shrimp. Do similar methods work in Padre? Any suggestions welcomed. Our entire family will ...

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas

I like the drains but I'm concerned that when stepped on you might get some separation in the plies in the transition of your rabbet. The lip is not real thick and may flex. If room, I'd glue a block underneath a few inches larger all the way around. They use a pattern bit in the router to cut the d...

Re: House shopping sucks

Well, we closed on the 22nd and started the move in journey. Sill have a lot to do, but loving it. The pool is great even though it needs resurfacing and some tender loving care. So great having my own shop. 18x24 AC/Heat. Plenty of room to build a 20x40 metal boat storage/building barn. :)

Re: House shopping sucks

Got moved out of our house on Saturday. Moved entire house into my In-laws shop and a small climate controlled rental unit. Appraisal boned us and cost us 10k on our sale, but the new house appraises at what I offered. We close on that on 08-22. Had the family over to move. I got started at 7:30 am ...

Re: House shopping sucks

Steven, congrat's on the new house 8) Jeez, I'd hate to think about moving, after 20 years of being here and everything involved :help: But ya know, life doesn't suck too bad when your main worries are finding a new house with a swimming pool and a shop. Lot's of people sleeping in cardboard boxes ...

Re: House shopping sucks

I did in fact get the one I wanted. And, as soon as I finished typing the post I get a text from my realtor that they have signed the contract. We actually beat out some higher bids. I offered 10k over asking price and guaranteed 5k over appraised value. Though I think it will appraise for what I of...

House shopping sucks

Been looking for a new place for 5 months. My house is sold and we close 08-05. Total stress wanting to find a place and not go into a rental. No short term leases around here so it means a year delay in getting a place big enough for a shop. Had an offer accepted last night on a 3/4 acre place that...

Re: Prayers for Wifes health

She made it through Chemo and had a relatively easy time compared to some of the stories we heard. Don't tell her I said that. ;) She started Radiation yesterday, and goes once a day for 6 weeks. Only side effects of that are skin related in the local area. May get tender and will loose some elastic...

Re: middle age guy trying to remember how to fish!

I'm right handed. I cast with my right hand and reel with my left. I can reel with my right if I have too, it's not nearly as comfortable.
