Now do we really want to get into this? Or is this a challenge for next week, cause I'm up for it! Got your Zebco oiled up?
Hey Randy, would you have us believe that you've evolved into a Water Moccasin?
I tend to wear the skin which fits best for the occasion, Lorlie! I can even be a "for goodness snake" if needed!
Yeah, I wanna "get into this!" I still have your quote from last year's trip when you said you'd outfish me. How did THAT work out for ya??? Huh? My Zebco is ready and fired up!!
What was last year's score - like Holle 50, Randy 0?
I believe Habee. It is clear fom the snake's posts in these forumsthat he does not have the patience or finesse needed to be a good fisherman!
I guess we will find out next week when you post up the results ? ? ? ? ? ? no pressure guys
She talks the talk, AP! But we'll see if she walks the walk! It will be a tough and hard fought battle, no doubt! But she's just a woman! And for some reason, today's women think they are just as good as men are!
Afraid to bait my own hook??? Hock!! No, sorry - I didn't count the minnows you caught in the net. Year before last, I had to take your fish off the hook! I heard you learned how to do it since then, however. Your wife said she taught you how. I sure am glad!
I have an idea, RD - let's team fish: you and Beth v. Johnny and me!
I'm afeared! I knew you would say I had to catch my own bait since I challenged you!
I sure hope the fluke...uh, I mean FLOUNDER are biting. Sorry, I think I've been writing too many fishing articles about Delaware, New Jersey, and New York! lol
I know how to get Beth to fish - throw a good bottle of wine in the ocean! Make that a "box o' wine."
where he lacks in fishing, he gains in length, randy, habee is a bully and i heard she wont hook a worm, too afraid, wanker miss im all that kinda hubber
ok but i do love her more so you lose
She used to know her way around a worm, Kim! But now she uses the "plastic " ones! If you know what I mean!
And I always thought the ladies were the "gentler" sex! (a long time ago)
How wrong could you have been - it is clear you are in for a severe beating in the fishing match though
It would be unthinkable to get beat fishing by a girl, AP! I would not be surprised if they banned me from Georgia if Holle managed, by some strange combination of luck and cheating, to beat me! I am that good!
So if you do not see me posting here shortly after the trip, you will know she threw me from the pier, not because I lost!
I didn't think there would be any doubt in that either.
kewl! what's up do you like worms, i mean fish of course, actually fishing
you al ways make me nervous like a little school girl
I've only been fishing once in my life and it was up in your neck of the woods. I did however enjoy myself, but never have had a chance do it again. I can deal with worms and fish.
i just knew u looked familiar, and man talk about bait and worms that day or was I jailb.........
nah, nice worm though
in your reply just give it to me straight, randy bends a lot,, not that that;s a bad thing, and well poet is pretty rigid
poet t t t t t t t
I would kick all your butts doing two things for sure
well and skinning a .............
I would take the bet on skeet shooting, Kim! I shot mourning dove this afternoon and compared to bagging these little feathered
missiles, shooting skeet is a piece of cake! Very fast, erratic flying birds! My favorite wing shooting sport of all!
Ducks coming off the water at around 60 mph are pretty hard to nial, especially if coming towards you Randy. I never heard of mourning doves. My guess is they are not like quail.
Howdy Ernesto, Ron, and Kimbo!
Doves are harder to hit than quail, but they don't taste as good.
Kimberly, I've never caught a marlin, but I did win two Ducks Unlimited skeet shooting championships!
Y'all pay no attention to Randy. I outfished him on our last trip. I suppose it's his turn to win. lol
I've shot ducks before, Earnest and they are similar to shooting dove except the dove fly more erratic and are smaller and harder to hit! I'm putting together a video of a dove shoot to display on my dove hunting article.
To give you an idea of how difficult it is to hit a dove, the state average is around 4 birds to a box (25rounds)! Of course, a good shooter will do much better! A very exciting sport with a good dove shoot costing the shooter up to $500 a day for a spot on the field!
Enough waving your respective rods around !! get to the challenge and put proof up here of hte result.
I am opening an imaginary money book on the result:
Habee wining: 10 - 1 against
The snake copping out with a bad cold: evens
Neither of them catching anaything at all: 20 -1
I will take imaginary bets of 100 dollars in any imaginary currency you like.
LETS SEE THE PICS - put up or shut up !!
That is true! I spent most of the time in bed sick as a dog after driving back home and shooting dove and then driving back to Florida the same day! When I got to the condo I HAD TO PARK OUTSIDE THE GATE AND WALK IN BECAUSE NEITHER MY WIFE NOR HOLLE WOULD ANSWER THEIR STUPID PHONES! Some birthday it was!
So - your reasoning is that you are not a good fisherman because nobody loves you !! Sounds like a cop-out to me bud. Still I guess the upcoming contest will sort this out ? or are you develoing a cold already
But no, AP! I am definitely a better angler than Holle! She is just shooting some more male bovine excretion! I will wager a couple hundred imaginary dollars at the 10-1 odds you have so graciously decided to lose! Give me your address so I will know where to mail the winning fish!
I have to be honest with you pal, buddy, mate !! I owe a lady a hub which I lost in a bet (although under another name) so you don't actually have a chance unless you come up with a fish bigger than you can mail !!!
I already have lines floating around my head in preparation for the contest aftermath -
Silent snake slinking slowly home
hiding his loney minnow
While Habee hauls huge heaps
of fish alone
Habee was up and raring for the fishing fight
While the snake sits snottily at home
feared of never getting a bite
not a snake a worm !
Sorry bud, I gotta do it, it was a promise and whichever way it goes that girl will win on paper
Okay, I see how the cards are stacked against me in this one! But that's okay..... that's alright! I am used to being the undersnake, especially dealing with the sneakier sex! But I will prevail in this battle, no matter how fictitious you make your ill fated hub! Because as FSM is my witness, I shall never go fishless again! (too dramatic?)
The poet was bettin' most of his cash
on an uncertain battle, but he was too rash!
He chose a damsel who snowed him away
instead of a winner, what can I say
but he'll learn his lesson, as all poets do
when the big fish arrives at his home, phewyou!
You can wriggle you can hide
you can even say you tried
but the pen is so much mightier than your rod
You can pray to some old god
You can even catch a lot
but I am with our Habee so your little bolt is shot
The wagers were made and the lines were cast out
when this contest started there wasn't no doubt
The serpent was ready the damsel was too
but not so the poet his luck was doo doo
Cause little did the wordsmith realize
he placed his bets poorly on a lady who lies
Sure she's a woman and they all do the same
but some men are savvy while others are lame
So don't count your dollars before their in hand
a serpent has powers beyond common man
If you don't believe me or cannot conceive
my powers oer women, you can ask EVE!
gotta love that serpent thingy at the bottom
I do believe you've found a sore spot on the toeless snake, AP! I can hear him sneezing from here..
Okay Ron, you had to dig up my old show business pics, didn't you! Why not the ones with the strippers instead? I was a little older in those photos!
Damn, you're good, Randy. How was the weather in there?
I see it's you and Whoopie Goldberg, but I don't recognize the third party.
Randy will lie if he loses. That forked tongue simply cannot tell the truth!
Holle was ready, with rod by her side,
But Randy slept in because he was fried.
She caught lots of drum, and a few flounder, too,
Her outfishing Randy was nothing new.
She deflated his ego again on the pier,
And left his heart filled with loathing and fear.
The wise ones say women fish better than men,
And it's true! Yep, I'll outfish Randy again!
The Serpent and the Fishwife
The battle will rage for three days long
Tween foes who ’d argue over song
Two heads as hard as Georgia clay
Neither of them giving sway
The game this time was for a fish
A fish which both of them would wish
would serve to garner them the name
Of best hub angler “what a claim’!
So grit your teeth and gird your loins
Before the contest fully joins
Cause later on the lies will fly
When Holle’s eating fresh crow pie!
Is crow pie on my low carb diet??
I haven't girded my loins in years!
Randy is a weed in a field of flowers.
So, RD, does that make you "agnoxious"?
Are ya takin' your guitar?
Most kinds of fish - In the UK I fly fished Welsh rivers for Sea Trout (Sewin) and salmon, all my childhood I sea fished the south Kent coast for SeaBass, Cod, etc etc, including flounders I fished for Tuna off Ascension Island, I have fished rivers and lakes in a few different places around the world.
I am now in China and my local fishing spots are one on the Li River which has been elctro fished to extinction and the principal target are Li River Fish (direct translation) they look a bit like Dace, and a whopper is four inches long. However, I patiently hunt down any river Carp that might still survive with little hope of success. My Chinese friends cannot begin to understand why I do it and also WHY I would put any back (and not eat them) if I caught them ! The other fishing spot is at the City Centre main tourist attraction in a lake under two giant pagodas with tourists taking photos all around. This lake has big carp but in the very warm water they tend to hang out in the centre and are rarely caught, but I persist
Wanna come over for a competition ?
You come over here! We have bigger and better fish. lol
We just returned from FL, and of course, I won the fishing competition. Randy is not allowed back in South GA until he kills a deer or does some other manly deed.
The fishing was terrible this week. The big storm off the coast had the water muddy and rough. They began biting this morning, just when we had to leave.
haha. So randy lost?whats the score btw? 1-0?
The score was 7-0, if you count my 2 catfish. In all fairness, I spent more time fishing than Randy did. He's not as patient as I am! lol
So you caught 7 and he caught nothing ? How big were each of hte seven and where are he pics ? this is too serious an issue not to have the detail Habee !!
I admit I caught nothing and the weather was indeed bad for fishing. But I have to say I didn't see Holle catch any fish nor was I shown any photos of any fish she allegedly caught while there. She said she had a picture of a fish she threw back but didn't show it to me while we were there. So, you make the call! LOL!
Wow - you telling me that a fisherman (sorry fisherwoman) tells lies !!!!! that rhymes with : thighs, sighs, pies, cries, shies, prize, pries, philosophise, antagonise, down-size, and these are just off the top of my head. Ok - so I have something to get started with
None were very big. The largest was a 16-inch red. I have a pic of the trout. I didn't think the others were camera worthy, except for the red, and Johnny had already given up and taken the camera with him.
SO _ with all that is at stake here you did no better than me fishing in a murky lake full of tourist boats !!!
I had high hopes of making an epic poem of the event as the hub I owe you in my alternate form - make it hard work why dontcha
I'm not much of a liar, AP. I tried it once but discovered that I wasn't very good at it. I'll post the trout pic on my trout fishing hub - I don't know how to do so here.
Seven fish? This is the first I have heard of this! LOL! What were the other three besides the two catfish I hadn't heard about either?
Ok - a slight improvement, I now have proof and prove. This would rhyme with spoof, aloof, poof, groove, move, behove, at a pinch - come on guys I am struggling here !
accusation, retribution, immolation, contrition, exhibition, dimunition, ammunition !
consternation, constipation, denigration, exaggeration, exasperation....
keep em coming - I don't have much to work with here! seven unproven minnows and a go-home is hardly an Odyssey is it
I told you I caught a blue and some little whiting. I just didn't mention the (yuck) catfish. You weren't listening, apparently. Of course, that's nothing new! lol
Even so, 7 fish for all the hours I fished is nothing to brag about. I don't think I've ever seen the fishing so bad there. Audrey told me only three flounder had been caught off the pier in the last four weeks.
Keep it coming, I need grist for the poetry mill !
blame, shame, game, fame (maybe not), aspartame, tame, strain
whinging, hingeing, bingeing, singeing
flounder, pounder (maybe not), bounder, around her, er, er, er,
Neither Beth nor I remember this but we do remember Johnny asking why you didn't take a picture of the alleged red you caught! At first you said you didn't have the camera but when Johnny said the camera was on the pier with you, you then said you couldn't find anyone to take your picture while holding the fish. Now you say you didn't have the camera at all!
I asked Johnny every time you guys came in if you caught anything and he said NO! This is the first instance I am aware of that you said you caught 7 fish! I freely admit I caught nothing but I cannot imagine you not taking photos of all of the fish, even the catfish, since you had the camera with you every time. I did see Johnny catch a catfish, but not you!
And if you had just caught a 16" red you wouldn't have been ready to go yesterday morning. Johnny has trouble getting you off of the pier even when nothing is biting! This would have been completely out of character for you! LOL!
I wasn't ready to go! JOhnny said we had to get back because he had to work on a handicap ramp. I was also out of bait. And I never said the camera was on the pier but there was no one to take the pic. Johnny had taken the camera up with him. Ask him. Johnny used one of my whiting for bait - whole. Something broke his line.
You disremember the camera conversation. Johnny had the camera yesterday morning. It went with him back up to the condo. Call him and ask him. As for the two measley catfish, Ohio guy took them off the hook for me, after wrapping them in a towel.
Don't be a sore loser, RD!
Dis-remember? LOL! You would have crawled up to the 5th floor to get a camera if you had caught a 16" red! But have it your way! I now consider you the winner of the HP Pier Fishing Championshit of the World Trophy! Congratulations, you have earned it!
Accuse, ruse, abuse, no clues, who's, bad news, short fuse, angry hues, Jews, muse, lose, pews, sues, opposing views, booze, woos, ewes, zoos...yep, several of these would apply to Randy - especially "woos" and "ewes," when used together with "booze." Oooooh, that was b-a-a-a-a-d!
RD, what are you doing home at this hour, anyway? You should have been out digging peanuts before sunup! I'm tellin' Peggy!
BTW, tell Beth that Vanne is coming in this evening.
There was an old man who loved zoos,
Especially the pretty young ewes.
When he'd had enough booze
He liked to muse
About wooing and abusing
With his short "fuse."
I really don't appreciate your calling me a liar here, Randy. I didn't have to lie about catching a red - I already had proof of beating you with the trout photo. I'll try to find out how to contact Audrey. She saw me catch the red and measured it for me. She caught two the same size.
I am not calling you a liar about the trout, even though you didn't offer to show me the photo while we were there, just that I didn't hear about the other 5 fish you now claim to have caught after we got home. And really, anyone could have caught a trout and loaned it to you for a pic, for that matter! LOL!
That would be great if you could get Audrey (whoever that is) to verify your story. But I do have photos of you fishing during the time you claimed to catch the red. No one is even close to you on the pier! My telephoto lens is pretty good on my new camera! Doh!
Don't worry AP, we argue like this all of the time! Perhaps the Trivial pursuit scandal would be informative!
Well, your camera or your photographic skills suck, then. Audrey was like SIX FEET away from me at my final fishing spot that day! And Johnny's catfish was tiny! D'uh!
Are you saying I cheated playing online trivia?
No, I don't know the answer as there is no way to cheat on a televised game! Yes, please fill me in and I'll relate the Trivial Pursuit scandal, if you like! LOL!
I came into the condo just as you were relating your "fish tale." But if your friend Audrey can vouch for you, it will be good enough for me!
OK - time out you guys ! Now you are both making me feel guilty about winding you up in the hopes of enough material for the promised hub.
So this is a good time to bring up the fact that the pair of you couldn't fish yourselves out of a paper bag then.
You have given me this mental image of 'Desperately Seeking Fish' down on the pier in all weathers and 'Sod it I am Going Home' sulking in the warm playing his spy camera over the neighbors bedroom windows!
Photos from both of you will be necessary to validate any part of this unlikely set of excuses for (allegedly) no fish and dissapointing all your hub fans - well fan I suppose.
So true, AP! LOL! I saw no one catch a decent fish the whole time there! But I did see Johnny catch a catfish! He actually won the contest because the fish was a decent size! Maybe Holle has a photo of him with his fish!
AP, Randy and I have a love/hate relationship - we love to hate each other!
I will try to locate her. I don't know her last name, but I'll bet Carolyn does. I think Audrey lives there year round. I do, however, have the pic of the trout!
I'm not the one who said you cheated. And I agree, I don't see any way you could cheat on televised trivia. It came from a sore loser. I told you about this years ago. Remember? I took up for you! Anyway, that's not even what I was referring to. You jumped to that conclusion on your own. I was thinking of the one that involved Johnny. lol
Someone we played with sometimes said you cheated regularly. I asked him HOW anyone could possibly cheat with that system.
I have never heard this before! And this is something I would never forget! No one ever accused me of this to my face and I don't remember anyone ever being accused of cheating that system!
Going to crash now, gotta pick those peanuts tomorrow! I've checked my photos and they are time dated. I'll post them tomorrow if you like!
We, the people, demand to see ALL the pics - the teeny weeny fish and Habee on the pier, and those 'others' through the neighbours windows
AP, you need to understand that Randy's lack of fish is not due to his being an inexperienced angler. He simply does not have the patience for it that I have. If he doesn't get a bite pretty quickly, he quits. I'll fish for hours on end. I just love being on the ocean - even if I don't get a single bite!
Sure! As long as it's okay for me to post pics of you! Oh, I almost forgot - you like posting pics of others, but you don't want your own posted. lol. Seriously, you can post the pics of me or of me and Johnny if I can post the ones I have of you and Beth. Deal?
and to cut off the I can't post pics issue - upload them to a hub or to flikr or somewhere and post the URL !!!!!!!

Just killed what we think is a Mojave green, but I'm not sure about the head shape...my understanding is that more triangular is venemous whereas less so may be non-venemous. No rattle, but very VERY heavy green coloring. Any help for more certain identification?

Yay!! Randy Godwin now has 203 fans...stalkers...ummm...followers!If you haven't "met" Randy yet or read his great hubs, do so! He has a great sense of humor and knows a lot about a spectrum of topics.
