    A thank you to AZGFD

    Stupid comment but hey, I'll take the blame for not checking it but if that's the way it works, NOBODY else found and repaired it either. I'll also take credit for the repairs I made in the past which resulted in hundreds of visits by animals for a drink of water. Hey Stanley.. delete my account please.. Thanks.

    You are correct. I certainly could have gone up to see if the tank was holding water.. However, the fact of the matter is, me being able to place a camera would have resulted in me finding the problem. I didn't go because of the ban so the problem wasn't discovered.

    Neither... The repair is simple but not with what I take hunting and I'm sure many do similar repairs as well. The 300 mile round trip and trek down a messed up road is OK too. The point of the thread is to point out the unintended consequence of having a wildlife water tank going dry for the summer as a result of the camera ban. And, luckily I didn't get into a heated, life threatening debate with someone while at the drinker.

    A thank you to AZGFD

    Just a quick thank you to GnF for allowing me to maintain my lifetime safety issue/negetavie interactions related to game cameras in the field at zero with the recent trail camera ban. I'd hate to have ruined my lifetime record of zero issues with a negative interaction. I would also like to let them know of a negative consequence directly related to the camera ban. A drinker that is typically heavily used by bears, elk, Mulies, WT, bobcats and a host of other critters was dry all summer. (I'm saying "all summer" because only a single squirrel hit the tank in a period of 3 days. I have had a camera on this tank for the last 4 years and check it every spring and summer and have made repairs to this tank in the past when I found problems. As I had no reason to set a camera this year, the broken pipe was not discovered until the fall hunt. I went up to sit my favorite tank for bear and found the holding tank empty due to a break in the supply line from the holding tank to the drinker. After the usual cleaning of the catchment filter screen, removing a ton of pine needles and a crappy band-aid fix to the pipe and a perfectly timed downpour that same afternoon, the holding tank gained over 2" of water and the drinker was full. I'll return at some point with tools and supplies to make the repair permanent. I doubt the camera ban was intended to remove a water source for wildlife but in this case, that was the effect of the ban so 👍.

    Deep Sea Fishing Out of San Diego

    Returned this morning from our annual 1.5 day on the Pacifica with almost a limit of BF. Mixed bag of 25-70. We had to choose between going south for Dodo's, YF and BF, which have been hit or miss, or going NW for BF only. We chose BF only. Weather was great and before Noon was maybe too nice. No luck at 5AM on jigs but the jigs and sinker rigs were picking off a fish or 2 on in the 30-70 range beginning at daybreak and throughout the day.. Lots of nada stops. About 3:30 we moved off the bigger fish to go find catchable fish. (About a 30 minute move) The 1st stop lasted about 2 hours with up to 10 rods bent at once using both flyline and sinker rigs. Smaller grade but lots of fun. They would not touch 40# line so 30# line on the spinner was the weapon of choice. That baitrunner reel screaming when they first hit it is still a rush. Made a few stops in the dark and 2 of them produced 2 fish each in the 60-70# range from 300-400'. Fish up to 200 are there, we just didn't find any that wanted to play. A big Mako came to collect some taxes but left shortly after taking the tail off of one nice fish.. (Tuna come to the boat so much easier when they have no tail)

    New National Monument in Arizona

    Yes, yes he did... "The Grand Canyon - one of the Earths 9 wonders..." Corrected a few minutes later.. Undoubtedly told in his ear or on a prompter..

    Albies in the house

    Wow. Maybe I need to try some new recipes. However, if they really show up and I happen to bring a bunch home, I'd gladly swap someone for BF..

    They officially caught the 1st Albie on the Aztec today. Don't know how far out they were. Lots of people seem to think it's great and while I don't care to eat em, they are fun to catch.

    40/50# rod suggestions

    When the world was out of everything and I wanted the Carnage II jigging rods, none existed anywhere so I ended up with the cheaper Rampage rods. I actually kind of like the action on the "5'-8" 80-130 braid" on the 50# class fish as the leverage the fish has is limited by the shorter rod but this is the rod I had a 100#+ BF on and it ran out of backbone and I ended up losing a multi hour fight with him due to being cut off with another line. Not blaming the rod so much as just being undergunned on that fish. The only real downside to the short jigging rods is getting over guys on the rail and the absolute worst part is getting around the anchor gear on the bow if you are on the cattle boats. I had a crew hand with me on this fish and he was jumping up on the bow to get the line around the bow.. All 17 times.. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to take a shorter jigging rod on a 6 pack but mine now sit at home as I fish on the cattle boats. As for Acid wrapped rods, for jigging and sinker rigs I think it's genius but I have never actually fished with one.. Yet...

    Fishing in Parker

    Sorry but don't know of a guide or much of the fishing there except that a buddy slays some monster smallies below the dam. Don Martin may be a guy to check with as it's kind of his end of the state. If you are a golfer however, I would recommend a round at Emerald Canyon as it's a beautiful course. (Or was a few years ago)

    Poaching ring busted

    If only there was a way to take pics and vids of what happens out in the woods when nobody is watching..

    Could explain both why Jennifer actually photographed all my documents when I met her out in the middle of nowhere and why I haven't seen a decent buck in yrs out there.
