    Went out Kaying Costal East TX. Was too windy and choppy to go out in the bay, so I stayed in the river and canals. Stayed late to road cruise for reptiles. Finally found not one but two cottonmouths, a brown snake, and some other misc. Tons of huge spiders out there.

    Who are the BS fishermen?

    Got my bucket list fish this weekend, though it was shorter than I hoped. I'd like to get one 6'+ next time.

    Do you celebrate a kill with a toast?

    When we go bluewater hunting, I bring beer soy sauce and limes. If we do well(ie wahoo/tuna) we have beer and sushi on the ride in. Never land hunted enough to develop a ritual or tradition. Sent from my BLN-L24 using Tapatalk

    Fishermen have a responsibility to retrieve snags and not discard fishing line. I get pretty frustrated. I've always hated seeing litter, but also hate cleaning up after people, especially when you know they will continue the behavior. Decided to get over it, and so I've been packing out bags of trash on each trip.

    Camped and fished out of the kayak earlier this week. hot and muggy.. sleeping in the tent was miserable. Caught almost nothing.. one catfish( on a jig oddly enough) and half dozen baby sized largemouth. Peaceful getaway and wasn't worried about catching much. Found some new friends. Totally adorable. Really bummed this was dead on road, was my first coral snake right next to my campsite.

    Where do you live? Also, what's it like fishing landlocked salmon?? What size do they get?

    Went to another lake, a place i've hiked around, but never fished or boated on. Regretted not bringing a rod.. as other kayakers were catching crappie. I just paddled around looking for critters. Saw one massive watersnake but it get away before I could get close enough to identify or catch. Found a new( to me) species of bird. Crimson Spoonbills. Didn't know there were pink birds in Texas.

    Hillary goes to the beach

    "Florida beachgoers spotted a rather unusual creature Tuesday emerging from the ocean: a possible diamondback rattlesnake." "While many beachgoers said the serpent was likely a diamondback rattlesnake, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was unable to formally identify the snake based off photos alone, biologists with the organization told the newspaper." Unreal. Clearly an Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake.

    Went to a famous( within texas anyway)spring, outside Austin, TX. Accounts vary, but there have been somewhere around 8 deaths in this spring, cave divers face a number of dangers. I didn't go too far past safety, stopping around 55' deep before the direction and width changed too much. Found a photo of myself preparing for a dive on social media thanks to hashtags. Hard to go anywhere without being documented these days!

    Earlier this week, took the yak out. Brought a banana for good luck :E It worked, and I found something i've spent my whole life looking for.. a timber rattlesnake. Also found a nasty stanky old beaver marinating in the swamp.. with a half dozen baby gators nibbling away at it.

    Where should I go, and what should I do? So, I'm burnt out on social media, and don't want to have to constantly explain myself to all the people I know, but I need a place to log some of my memories off the beaten path. I'm not sure how many of you folks here know me from the old site, but there have to be a few that came over. I managed to pay off all debt 6 months ago, and have now quit my job with absolutely nothing lined up! Taking a few months off to play and reevaluate career path, and living locations( guess midlife chrisis is hitting closer to 1/3 life). I've been too busy working to explore much of Texas and all it has to offer( outside this horrid city in Eastern Tx). So I've been playing in-state for a bit, but soon venturing farther. Have recently purchased a Kayak, and heading out later today to pickup a super ratchet camper top for the danger-ranger.. gonna try out this truck camping thing. Hopefully I can post photos and videos here without trouble hosting. More to come whenever I feel like it.
