    If its a spring weekend day they say you can almost walk across the boats on the water... Hear Randleman has become a real good crappie hole.. Never fished there either

    I had a place on Norman before I moved to the coast, boats had ruined fishing there also.
    It would be worth a small fortune today, no longer mine.
    Santee Cooper was my favorite in my younger days, big black slabs, saw one almost 4 lbs, years ago.

    i have an older Radio Shack scanner.with weather, HAM, air, police, fire, marine....

    i can get some HAM, and all the weather i want.

    as far as police and fire, maybe i might get a scan...as for the marine...well, i'm about 40 miles from the shore, so i get nuffin.....

    i kinda figured the signals went to digital, or whatever.

    looks like anyone of these

    yea I use 2 here 1 dedicated to local police which is a Viper system so you have to have a fairly expensive scanner to pick them up and I also have a regency handheld from the 90's I use to pick up the sheriffs department... To pick up marine 40 miles away you will probably need a band specific antenna on your house

    i had to remove the 2 guppies from my tank last night..they were "bullying" one of (or both of0 the mickey mouse platy's that i have..

    and i swear, one of the platy's "looks" preggo.......

    dammit....i don't wannabe a grandfather to any more fishes......

    oh, those 2 bully guppies..?

    there are in a VERY SMALL plastic container, that they cannot see out of, unless they look up at the ceiling......

    i think it hold about 10 ounces of water.......screw them.......

    maybe some day i'll dump them back into the COMMUNITY tank, and be good little fishy's......if not.....

    my niece......has a cat...........

    yeah, i figured, the marine crap doesn't interest me enough to install a long antenna.....especially when someday, i will sell this house, and most likely go and live in an apartment for the disabled/seniors.

    i already have yet another radio shack specific weather radio, that i'd take with me while on the road, even the last job that i had...going up north, that weather gets nasty quick.

    I doubt you will pickup VHF marine band being 40 miles away, unless weather permitting, maybe a CG station.
    CG sideband is usually encrypted.
