Not much the last 4/5 days. Way too HOT for me. Before that, I have been out on the lake at least twice a week. Walleyes are hitting but have had to work for them. It should get better after this hot weather. Boat traffic is worst than ever.

All is fine over this way. Still making a trip down to NYC, but not as often as we were. Wife is doing great. It was 2 years on 7/1 that she got her transplant.

Good hearing from you. I do look for you when I go into Stewart's....h2l

Bowling pins are kind of nifty to blast at.
  Or try my invention,  you need about a 4' piece of 1/2" pipe with a coupling on the end, set about 12"-16" of the pipe into the ground and set a golf ball on top of the coupling end and stand back about 25'-30' and blast the golf ball and watch it fly.
Just be safe.

My boy is almost 2 but I would be interested in one of those custom knives for him for the future. Maybe bear bone? Would you be willing to ship one out?
